    If you are experiencing sign in problems after the October 2006 windows updates there are a couple methods I used to fix this.Version – Windows Live Messenger 8.0 build 8.0.0.812.00Problem – Messenger attempts to sign in and after a long period of time finally returns an error.BEFORE MAKING ANY CHANGES TO THE REGISTRY YOU MUST EXIT MESSENGER, DONT TRY THIS IF YOU DON\’T KNOW WHAT YOUR DOINGMethod 1 – The easy method, but you lose any settings you changed from default within messenger.-Open regedit-Navigate to hkey_current_user\\software\\microsoft\\msnmessenger-Right click msnmessenger and delete-Sign in and enjoyMethod 2 – The hard method which saves any options you  have changed-Open regedit and go to hkey_current_user\\software\\microsoft\\msnmessenger
    -Right click msnmessenger and hit export, save it to your desktop
    -Delete msnmessenger from the registry, keep regedit open
    -Sign into msn live and sign out
    -Go to regedit and hit F5, you should have msnmessenger in the registry now
    -Right click msnmessenger and export it to desktop, different filename
    -Delete msnmessenger from the registry again
    -Open both those registry files in notepad
    -Copy from second file to first appsettings, cachedpolicy0, and machineguid
    -Delete server, avenable, and antivirus (You may not have all of these keys)
    -Save your changes to the first file then double click to update the registry
    -Sign in and enjoy
