windows live messenger not working

  LABMAN 23:06 09 Mar 2007

Hi folks,

I'm having problems with windows live messenger I can't get on at all and according to my wife she hasn't been able to get on all day.

The basic connectivity tests are coming up all green ticks and I have even tried disabling Norton Firewall to elimante the possibilty of it blocking it but no joy.

The error code generated is as follows...

error code 80048820
extended error code 80048439

a check on the system status says it's running fine so any help would be much appreciated

Thanks Peter
