Go to security centre in control panel.

Click the Firewall tab (Top left)

Choose allow a programme through the firewall

Either add live messenger to the list, or tick the box with it's entry next to it.

It seems that if you use the new one (this is a safe Microsoft download) It cures the problem....Never touch such things myself, but hope this works.
