I don't have WL suite installed anymore, but after a quick Google I'm pretty sure the file in question is: C :\Program Files (x86)\Windows Live\Contacts\wlcomm.exe
Try giving that a allow/permit permission in your computer's installed firewall.

It's not asked me for internet access so i assume i have. How do i check?
Windows Live Mail, Windows Live Messenger, it's very unfortunate that they are exactly the same abbreviated. Though when it comes to a toss up, I'll always call the messenger 'WLM' and the mail client 'WL Mail' (Since 'Messenger' takes longer to type than 'Mail'!)

it was never called that in the first place, and it's been wlm for over five years.
At first, I wondered why anyone was still using MSN dial-up internet. As for the WLM, that most often refers to Windows Live Mail it seems. IM apps are slowly dying out, as far as I can tell. I used to have an AIM list with 300 contacts running through Trillian. At any given point, I'll log in and see one or two people online, at the most.
