  1. When I attempt to sign into msn it gives me that error code and says I may not be connected to the internet…my internet is working fine, I have no viruses, I’ve even called shaw cable and tried everything they told me to do and it still didnt work…I’ve disconnected the internet and reconnected it, used a registry cleaner..and I am unable to use system restore to a point when msn was working fine. This all started when I installed 6.2, I have no idea what else to do…any ideas?

  3. Hi Guys….
    i had the same problem….some told me to register dll and reinstall: firewall, antivirus, IE and even Operating system…after questioning Microsoft database i realized that the problem is in Winsock…..so i searched a tool (called WinsockXPFix.exe good for winxp) on the internet, download it to an isolate zone on my hard drive check viruses free and install it, after reboot the problem was solved!!!

Everything is up and running with my internet, spent hours last night trying to sort msn and no luck, tried everything, there is even no sign of the msn anywhere on the computer, tried the firewall thing too…please if you could suggest any more that would be amazing.

  19. heya guys,
    as far as i can tell msn has only ever brought this up wen u do hav something wrong with ur pasword although yesterday i set up a wireless network to connect my main comp to 2 laptops and now it has stopped connecting me to MSN aghhh its so fustrating. i do believe there is an answer somewhere on the net but i cant find it and hav been trying to 4 the past 4 hours. if u hav just connected to a wireless network i believe it has something to do with the internet explorer connection settings in tools found in both msn and internet explorer. hope some of this makes sense. and if anyone finds an answer, advice or wants to chat about this my email is kneecap89@aol.com put ‘MSN probs’ in subject and i’ll get back to u and hopefully 2 searching for an answer will b quicker than one.
    Rosie
    P.s if u dont want to email i will b checking bac here for any developments

  20. That would be 0x81000365 – everything I’ve seen so far seems to point at firewalls blocking things. Check your firewall settings to see if perhaps that’s the issue.

  29. 0x81000301 – ERROR:
    Close MSN Messenger completely until the tray icon is gone.

    – Windows 2000 or Windows XP users
    1) Click Start > Run
    2) Type: %appdata%\Microsoft and press enter.
    3) Right-click the MSN Messenger folder and rename it.

    Now restart MSN Messenger and try to sign in again…

    – Windows 98 or Millenium users

    1) Click Start > Run
    2) Type: %windir% and press enter.
    3) Open Application Data and then the Microsoft folder.
    4) Right-click the MSN Messenger folder and delete it.

    Note: if you’re using Profiles with Windows 98/ME, you’ll need to go to the Profiles folder, choose your username and then go to the Application Data folder (then continue with the same
    process). If you don’t know if you have Profiles setup, most likely you do not (if you don’t have Profiles folder in the Windows folder, then you aren’t).

    I ws thinkin-how mny of the ppl above r on aol? Mayb they dnt wnt u 2 use msn an insted, their own crappy AIM(aol instnt messngr).

    For the time being, i use http://www.e-messenger.net-its a website that acts the same as msn except u cn only chat-u cnt play games or do audio/video messages.

    Also, when i use IE, i cant go on, among others, the following websites:
    -microsoft.com
    -hotmail.com
    -amazon.co.uk
    -ebay.co.uk
    but these work fine on aol’s browser.

    Just 2 complicate things-i had a neighbour who used 2 b on aol, but he cud do all of these ok on his pc!

    Please post a solution-im getting really p’d off with it.

  42. There is a major problem with AOL. My advice to anyone is to scrap it, i’ve been trying to persuade my mum for years but she won’t because she wants the parental controls for my sisters:(
    I have been using MSN on AOL for years but with difficulties…i recently installed a wireless network and it hasn’t worked since. I cannot access secure websites through any browser other than AOLs. AOL are trying tocontrol peoples lives…they just want you to use their IM service…their Media players..their browsers. Only advice to people with problems…switch ISPs. If ever come accross a permanent solution i’ll post. Until then e-messenger.net is a good idea but its so slow and annoying you may aswell not bother.

  65. I found that Norton firewall was blocking my MSN 6.2. It seems that Norton blocks MSN as a default when installed. To fix it:

    Open Norton Firewall
    Click “Personal Firewall”
    Click “configure”
    Click “Program control”
    Look for “Microsoft Windows Messenger”
    (Ignore “Microsoft MSN Messenger”)

    *If you can not find “Microsoft Windows Messenger” then click “add” and browse for the file MSNMSGR.EXE (usually in “\program files\msn messenger”)

    It will be set to “automatic” which if you look will be set to ‘block’.
    Re-configure to allow access.
    Close MSN and then open.
    It should now work!!

  75. I am running win 98 and I tried all the options listed here to fix this problem. I upgraded to MSN 7.0 beta and still had problems. I dont have any control over the firewall settings here as it is done by an external company so was hoping it was nothing to do with that. I suddenly noticed today after sending a message to MSN customer support, that my Norton was also not working. My IE 6.0 had started prompting me for lots of things at the same time MSN stopped working properly.

    I tried all the norton solutions to find out why norton antivirus was not working and one of the solutions was to fix my IE 6.0 by going to settings and control panel and add/remove software. Then to click on IE 6.0 and add/remove and then clicking on repair IE 6.0. After resetting my pc, MSN works perfect and so did Nortons.

    Maybe try this.

  76. You need to disable any type of firewall! Or internet security program! Then if it works you have to add MSN Messenger to firewall with full permitions to access the internet! If not it won’t work! So go to firewall options add a program or enable or permit, something like that and add this extention

    C:\Program Files\MSN Messenger\msnmsgr.exe

    Good luck!

  78. MSN Error in Version 7 Beta: 80072eff

    Ok, went through loads of fixes here and no luck. Then realised that the other day I had been playing with proxies in Internet Explorer (Me a Firefox fan so hadn’t realised IE still had settings there that didn’t exist)

    Now by all accounts MSN shouldn’t give a damn what the IE proxy is set to as it has its own proxy settings. On that note however, as soon as I removed the proxy details MSN worked.

    As soons as I put them back, MSN failed to log on.

    What is interesting is that if I logged on to MSN, then changed the proxy. MSN would still let me chat. If I then exited it and try to logon again, it failed.

    Moral of story, Make sure you have an either no Proxy or an active Proxy in your IE.

    May be other fixes out there, but this is the only one I have found so far.

    (PS only installed v7 beta cos v6.2 was giving me jip – Presumeably for the same reason, but with a different error message)

    Good Luck

  83. Hi I’ve received the same error as you guys. I managed to fix it by going into IE and clicking on:

    TOOLS|INTERNET OPTIONS
    CONNECTIONS TAB
    ALWAYS DIAL MY DEFAULT CONNECTION

    See if that works.

  84. ~~~~~~FOR THOSE ON AOHELL WITH PROBS (MAYBE OTHERS)~~~~~~~~~~~

    hi all, the following might be useful to you guys…

    1) For those on Aohell trying to get ebay, hotmail etc to work in internet explorer on wireless networks, you need to use PPPoA not PPPoE, with NAT on and your Firewall off. Now you should be able to see the sites!

    2)a word to the wise, make sure your firewall is off on your router (if it has one), if not make sure that in norton or whatever firewall software you are using that msn messneger is not blocked!

    3)renaming the msn messenger folder WILL HAVE NO EFFECT!

    4)for most of you the problem is that msn is being port blocked, so you need to check that your proxy is set correctly, or if you can throw it out, i hate proxy settings anyway!

    5)If your reconfiging parts of your rotuer/wireless setup 9 times out of 10 you will need to re-start the router before the changes take place! (note- not the pc, the router)

    6)try resetting all values to default in IE connections, MSN and Firewall, if it was working before then this can resolve the problem! remmber your old settings tho! this seems silly but oftern cant help!

    7)those on XP can try rolling back this *could* help, although if its a router/firewall thing which 99% of the time it is then this will have no effect!

    8) oooo yeah bin windoze and use linux 😉

  88. Hi guys,

    Some of the errors could be caused by problems on your system. However, recently msn had been doing some maintenance on their server. Yesterday i was getting errors for a few hours before getting back on last night. Now today i getting a different error. So one way ot know for sure if it is not your system that is acting up is ask you friends before uninstalling and doing other stuff to your pc.

  95. Looks like the IM problems has been fixed…the data center at microsoft was having issues, my guess would be because of the latest IM worm that was out. This morning most of my users were prompted to install a hotfix for thier Windows Messenger (not so for the users with MSN messenger which is diff)after installing it thier computers restarted and were able to log on.
    The rest of this messege is for Craig who posted at 2/9/05 @ 9:30am….
    Craig, I have had problems with the Dlink router before, they have a tendencey to be locked down a little to much…i have remote users that cannot remote to the office because of d-link. Look and see if you can open up the IM ports both TCP/UDP and see if that helps…or buy Linksys router for around $50 and save your self the headache. I don’t know the port numbers but i am sure a google search could get them in short order for you….I hope that helps.

  98. The problem seems to be related with HTTPS. If you note ,all the applications not currently running (MSN Messenger, Hotmail, Yahoo mail, etc) have HTTPS in common. How it happened , or how it can be fixed I do not know…..yet. I have one Windows 2000 working fine and a Windows XP that can not connect to anybody using HTTPS.

    Reply
  100. I found a corrupted firewall Software causes the 0x8100301 problem, at least in my case. I suggest to either desinstall or reconfigure any Firewall software you may have. And try …. The Firewall was not allowing the PC work with HTTPS correctly. The access to MS Messenger, and the access to other ‘secure’ pages like Hotmail…etc, was disrupted. Some hacker found the way to attack and modify the Firewall Software. (The last part is a theory, a feasible one though)

  101. i dont get this damn thing(0x81000301 error), ive been getting it fro about a week now,ever sinse i got the update for msn :(…and i have no idea why its not working. They really should make error reports explain themselves more.

    Reply
  102. I had the same problem today. Error 0x8100301 for MSN 6.2. My wife had just updated to this version.

    I looked at my firewall logs and it looked like my wife had inadvertently also chosen to prevent internet access when the Zone Labs Integrity Client message had popped up the first time it was used.

    I checked the Program Controls in Zone Labs and it did not say that this application was blocked. However, I removed the entry which allowed Zone Labs to issue the same pop-up request for internet access the next time I used MSN. (You may want to configure your firewall to issue these requests if it is capable). Once I allowed this access the problem was gone.

    In summary, I think this suggests that this symptom is caused by blocking of the application (either by port, protocol or explicit application). Playing with your firewall is a good start. However, you have no control over servers belonging to your ISP (DNS, DHCP and PROXYs) – if it does boil down to that. In that case you will need to raise a problem with your ISP.

  119. The problem you are all experiencing is your MTU settings. This needs to be changed on the router and your network card. The setting that always seems to work in 1492. The setting on your router is normally on the DSL setup screen. to change it on your network card try getting DRTCP this will allow you to change your network cards MTU setting.
    HOPE THIS HELPS YOU ALL!!!

  146. Try reducing the length of your password.

    I upgraded to V7 of Messenger and could not log in. I had a very long password which got me into Hotmail but not Messenger. This drove me nuts and Microsoft were not much help.

    I registered every bit of code; changed all the security settings and did about 50 things to the PC – all to no avail.

    Messing around with my passport did not help either.

    I cut my password down to 8 characters and it worked straight away.

    It might not work for you but it is well worth trying.

When I log on it tells me that I have already done so and it’s showing that MSN IM is working. But I can’t even connect. Please help!

  198. I click on the little man for the MSN messenger but nothing happens at all. Also the MSN server does not do anything at all either. Please help!

  199. Most of this issues can be solved by performing the following steps:

    Make sure other than msn messenger connection , internet works fine .

    There is no need for reinstalling msn messenger again but if you want you can try .. Go to control panel –> add/remove programs and uninstall msn messenger
    Then use the setup file or download it from messenger.msn.com and install it again.

    If the above steps does not work,

    The problem maybe if u are using a different browser such as Mozilla and MSN only takes the default IE HTTPS settings.

    Please enable the HTTPS in IE and if IE is able to connect to websites, please restart your IE amd MSN messenger and check if you are able to connect.

  203. Try this. Found it on the Microsoft forums.

    ===========================
    Dear all if you have not heard simply add these addresses to the following
    file that should be opened with notepad and MSN will work.

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts – (When you open the ETC folder open
    the HOSTS file using notepad).

    insert the following addresses:

    65.54.239.80 messenger.hotmail.com
    65.54.239.80 dp.msnmessenger.skadns.net

    (INSERT THEM DIRECTLY UNDER THE OTHER 2 ADDRESSES AND ALIGN THEM WITH TAB.)

    I was told by the experts that it would not work, but guess what. Worked fine and fixed the problem.

    MAJOR CREDIT to ALPESH NAKAR’S BLOGSPHERE

    Do exactly as follows:-

    Click start
    – Type: cmd (but don’t hit Enter)
    – Right-click cmd.exe when it appears under Applications
    – Click Run As Administrator
    – Type the following: netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled
    – Press enter

    Then just sign into WLM; you don’t even have to reboot.

    Happy Times everyone.
