MSN should be giving you a description of the problem and an error number? What does it say? Did you recently update Windows or install any new software?

its showing error code 8e5eO5f6..........I can get in to it through internet explorer,but not through the usual icon on tool bar.Restarted pc,and it came up in a large box on screen saying temporary unavailable.did a windows up date the other day,but msn was working last night.

have tried msn helpsite,but error code isnt listed/emailed them and had an automated reply with no help/tried system restore!but still have the warning when I log on "temporarily unavailable""we cant sign you in to windows live messenger"...

have googled the error code,but the answers are too complex for me to tackle.have now gone into windows help forum...hope they have an answer!
