Windows Live Messenger

Firstly, apologies if I have posted in the wrong forum but I thought as I have Vista, this may be the place to try.

I have installed Windows Live Messenger on my pc but now keep getting the error code 81000306 and telling my my firewall could be a problem. I have checked this and confirm the rules are set in place to allow this to go through.

Any ideas will be most welcome and much appreicated :)

And this advice,

"How do I fix error 81000370?When you try to sign in to MSN Messenger, you may receive the following error message:

We were unable to sign you in to the Microsoft® .NET Messenger Service.
Try the following to help resolve the situation:

Click the MSN Messenger icon in the taskbar (next to the clock), and then click Exit.
Make the following changes to your Internet options:
Click the Microsoft Windows Start button, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
Click Network and Internet Connections.
Click Set up or change your Internet connection.
Click the Content tab.
Under Certificates, click Clear SSL State.
Click OK when you receive a confirmation.
Click the Advanced tab, and then scroll down to Security.
Make sure that Check for server certificate revocation (requires restart) is not selected, and that Use SSL 2.0 and Use SSL 3.0 are selected.
If your computer is running Microsoft® Microsoft® Windows® XP, clear the DNS resolver cache.
On the taskbar, click Start, and then click Run.
In the box, type cmd, and then click OK.
At the command prompt, type ipconfig /flushdns, and then press ENTER.
Try to sign-in to MSN Messenger again."
