live messenger error 81000306

  Bobnik 12:46 18 Oct 2008

For no reason at all I am unable to log on to Live messenger and eventually get the following error 81000306. I have checked all of the help suggestions and everthing is in order. I can even access using my daughters log on but not my own. The details are corrrect as I can log on online. I am using version 8.5. The live help site is rubbish and will not let you contact them

Any suggestions please

Unplug your modem/router for about two minutes. This will reset your ip addresses, and re-allow your windows live id to be granted access to the Microsoft servers again.

Vista or XP?

Further tests seem to point to my address being a live address and my wife and daughter being hotmail. They can both access from the same messenger log in
