ry un-installing and re installing the previous messenger you had, or you can go to control panel> add or remove programs > msn messenger 7, click remove, once the un-intallation setup has appeared, you will have an option to remove or repair msn, click repair, this may solve the problem, or the last possible reason could be to do with the msn server, in other words its nothing to do with your pc or what version you have, and msn messenger will be fixed soon if that is the case. exactly what hapens when you try to sign in?

when i try to sign in i get a message saying sorry cannot connect you to messenger, please try again later code 80072ee7. i have checked the messenger status screen and it says that messenger is running ok with no system problems

Hi, quite often msn messenger just gets so busy that signing in does become a problem, but this is usually just a temporary situation.
