  13. Antoinette says:

    Same issue as everyone else here: for the past month or so, I\’m no longer able to log into MSN Messenger.  I\’ve tried all suggestions I can find here – verified date/time settings, uninstalled/reinstalled several times, re-registered all of the DLLs listed in several of the postings, I\’ve made sure the Windows Firewall (I\’m running XP) had MSN Messenger selected as an exception to allow, then tried disabling the Windows Firewall, altogether.  Still get the same message of: "Signing into MSN messenger failed because the service is temporarily unavailable. Please try again later. 800b0001".
    Anyone from Microsoft out there?  Could really use some help.
     
    Thanks.

  26. xaNdReAlOux says:

    Xan, I had the EXACT same problem! I tried all the possible solutions and after restarting, it was fixed. I am confident that this was what solved it:1. Click Start2. Click Run3. In the textbox type: cmd.exe4. Click OK5. The command window will open. Type the following commands in the command window and press ENTER. Some of these commands make take up to 60 seconds to execute. Just wait for each one to complete before entering the next one.regsvr32 Mssip32.dllregsvr32 Softpub.dllregsvr32 Initpki.dll6. Usually this seems to work. However, if this doesn\’t work, you may need to register more files. Here are the common trouble-makers. Continue to enter these into the command window:regsvr32 Cryptdlg.dllregsvr32 Rsaenh.dllregsvr32 Gpkcsp.dllregsvr32 Dssenh.dllregsvr32 Slbcsp.dllregsvr32 Mssip32.dllregsvr32 Wintrust.dllregsvr32 Sccbase.dllHope it helps! x

  41. AzN says:

    http://www.msn-problems.com/solve-msn-messenger-problem/sign-in/msn-7/msn-messenger-sign-in-80048820.phpJust search up the error code on google or some internet search engine…along with phrases like \’MSN\’ \’Trouble shoot\’, \’trouble signing in\’. If that doesnt help, check system time, to see if thats is a problem…Then check if you\’re online or \’working off line\’ (just to check, turn it on then off again)And if you cant find anything to fix it, uninstall internet explorer and msn,THEN reinstall internet explorer, reinstall msn and everything else… IF and ONLY if nothing helps and you\’re deperate to get on msn, and THIS IS THE LAST RESORT, only if you\’ve backed everything, do you format your computer… THIS SHOULD BE USED only if your really sure, and desperate, which i wouldnt advise…. just use an older version, before a newer version than the one you\’re using comes out.

  43. Ardie says:

    Boy, I\’m also getting rather tired of this 7.5 difficulty w/msn msg… seems my other one worked just fine and the FEW times I\’ve got it up for a few minutes… it has worked fine. I don\’t believe it is the settings on my pc. Anyway, I\’m not going to start messing with them just to see if that is the problem…it could lead to bigger problems, besides, I really don\’t have the time… why don\’t you put out the old msn for all of us who are having programs can reload that one. This is one big BUMMER! Now I know why most of my friends are using other messengers. Come on guys…get your act together!! Most users out here are users, not pc gurus.

  44. Luc says:

    TIRED !! I have msn messenger 7.5, and everytime I run it, the error 80048820 pops up !! Yay !!When I run up the debug thing, everything is ok, and my internet explorer is online….. So .. What\’s the problem !! I\’m sort of tired of searching the intire site of google for an answer.HELP !!! (Thanx)

  45. Ettore says:

    Im flipping out man mi msn 7.5 won sighn me in. When ever I try to sighn in it will show me as online but the screen freezes to the sighn in screen and wont show mi contacts, then if i click the screen at the very top it ses msn not responding nd when i check the error report contains it ses that mi offset is 00000000 ???. It has been doing this for about 5 months and i dont know why so plzz help me ASAP.

  46. Unknown says:

    Ok, when I type my name into my sign in bar on msn 7.5… it takes 10 seconds for one letter to show up, but it is storing the text, not only that but it gives me a service is temporarly unavilable so I check the service, its running fine, my hotmail is running fine but msn is not… could it be spy ware or a virus targeting msn 7.5?I know for certain its not a firewall or program I put on my laptop for it, cause I just got it and theres barely anything here, my pc msn is fine but Its been a few days since I checked it, any help would be great on figuring out this.

  47. Patrick says:

    80048869. Firstly: Do make sure that within Internet Explorer on the menu (File -> Work Offline) is UNCHECKED. This solved my problems with not being able to connect with Messenger 7.5. Playing around with firewalls and running regsvr32 dll\’s, carrying out a repair on 7.5 or re-installing it did not have any affect. This might go unnoticed if you\’re using another browser like myself.

  48. Patchtheman says:

    Ever notice how you are all posting the same problems over and over and no one is actual responding to you?! We know what the problem is….why post what is already there?

  49. Unknown says:

    80048869 error – SOLUTION:Solved thanks to Trillian multiclient :D which wrote in status window:"We could not sign you in to MSN Messenger because Internet Explorer is currently set to work offline. Please change this setting on your browser\’s File menu, and then try signing in again."

It says i have a problem with my host files.WTF?!i click repair, but it does nothing.ive tried deleting and reinstalling.nothign doing.weird thing is, that it will connect when i first come on, then disconnect me and not reconnect for an hour or so.its seriously annoying me..someone please help!?!??

  71. Micha says:

    It seems a lot of people are having similar problems. I\’m having a gateway offline problem too, except I get error 80048869. There are a couple of strange things about this: 1. If I go to Tools > Options > Connections > Advanced settings and click on the top "Test" button, I get a successful result, it reports I can connect to the MSN Messenger Service.2. I am the network administrator here, and our firewall/gateway has been configured to allow MSN Messenger services through. I can confirm that the gateway is indeed online and working properly, yet I still get the error.It would appear that the Messenger support personnel don\’t read and respond to these comments.

  72. Matej says:

    I have the same problem problem as KJaitlin. MNS never lets me log on and keeps saying error 80048820. I emailed MSN support but haven\’t gotten a reply, and I checked my settigns and I found out I wasn;t connected to .net servers. The only problem is, no matter what I do I cannot get a connection to the .net server. Am I doing something wrong? What can I do so I can use MSN?

  73. Kaitlin says:

    i keep getting that stupid error 80048829 and i cant figure out what to do. Isent an email to the msn peps but it didnt help. It says that my default gateway is offline and i dont know how to fix it. I checked my firewall so i know it has to be that. Does anyone know how to fix it???kat

  79. Mark says:

    I\’m getting an error 80004005, seems to be no support for it. IE connection working fine, Troubleshooter gives all green ticks but when you try to connect, no go.Works fine at home, problem only via one of the work proxy servers. Problem is that the one it works on is being shut down.

  80. Daniel says:

    I\’m having a similar problem, 80072745 – but only on the university network!! at home, it works fine.. same computer, etcnarrowing it down to a \’network\’ issue, what could be causing it ? network protocals? I should mention I\’d installed Norton Internet security in between it working and not, but again, this can only relate directly to the uni network – at home, it seems irrelevant..so.. any network experts who might know what exactly is the conflict?help!dantheman107@hotmail.comi\’m sure we\’ll get to the end of it at some stage!

  87. Sonesh says:

    I have found the answer. it was quite obvious. cant understand why i didnt thkn of it earlier. DO NOT GET 7.5. DO NOT GET NEWER VERSION. DO NOT KEEP TRYING.i did also consider contacting tech support, but it was easier just to delete 7.5 and install 7.0(yo can do it from add remove programs in control panel in case you were wondering).And if your still stuck, move to icq. apparently it better

    Hi on dial upin the UK and Idownlaoded the new 7.5 version which altermatically replaced the 7.0. i was able to get into the new version no problem! until I rebooted then i could not get online . My dial was saying that I had changed my user name and password!! Of which I ghad not. I have windows XP pro.In the new messenger I looked on the troubleshooter and it said that my IP is not valid!!!!I tried everything even called my server. they suggested to go back to messenger 7.0 I tried to get rid of the 7.5 with add and delete program and go back to 7.0 it still did not work. soas last resort for me I had to do a system restore for the day b4 and I have messenger 7.0 back of which i did get the wizard to repair…..ALAS I am back up and running again in 7.0.

    I had the same problem, so I unistalled v7.5, downloaded v6.2 from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=1b5bfaee-4bfa-42bf-a42e-417d748cefa1&displaylang=enthen installed. when i tried to log in i got a message saying i had to get the new version. i said yes and installed.worked for me, only takes a few minutes worth trying.

  94. BenedicT says:

    i cant sign in msn 7.5 and i have checked my firewall. it was off. but i still cant sign in. it say that my gateway is offline. how can i get it back to online?

  95. Leanne says:

    Now, fingers crossed!I read further down that your time has to be correct for messenger to work. So click on your time and choose synchronise with MSN or Windows. This worked for me and Ive tried all of the other solutions on this page.Good Luck!

    OK,after hours of antagonising and going totally crazy i gave up! screw it, and tried to download MSN 7.0. Damn it! it appears that its been sucked into oblivion like my patients!But i am writting to spread the word* i say in a god like voice* and the word (and solution) is SYSTEM RESTORE!my computer has a facility called System Restore and it allows you to restore your computer settings to a chosen time (ie before MSN 7.5 was downloaded) and dont fear you will not loose files or data etc. i did this and low and behold i have MSN 7.0!!!!MWAHAHAHAHA!I beat you once again MSN!!!! That\’ll teach you to!

  97. Artists are bad spellers says:

    me too! please help me someone!

  98. sami says:

  99. Christopher says:

    I have only read a few fixes here for not being able to sign on. I have tried the date and the firewall fix. I went as far as turning off the firewall. No luck. I\’m stuck here not being able to talk to family and msn messenger 7 is no-where to be found. Sucks to be me until someone comes up with a fix. Anyone got a fix? Error code 80048820
