Just within the past few weeks I've started getting this error occasionally. I've noticed that when it occurs the personal profile picture that usually shows when I am signed it for WL Mail or WL Photo Gallery is no longer displayed. I appear to be still signed in though.
This is a reach but I think it might be related: I think it started after I installed Skype and uninstalled Messenger. I am not a Skype user but I got an announcement from Microsoft saying they would be discontinuing Messenger in lieu of Skype so I followed the link to install Skype. I can't remember if it told me to uninstall Messenger or if I just did it on my own but, at any rate, if they are discontinuing it then there shouldn't be any reason to keep it installed. As I said, this is just a WAG on my part.
Google finds lots of occurrences of this error and a few on them even reference Messenger but most all of them go back 3-4 years with the most recent ones referencing Vista and the older ones XP. I didn't find any really recent ones or any for Windows 7.
Before I try to unwind Skype and reinstall WL Messenger, does anyone know an easier way to get rid of the error causing the communications platform to stop?
Thanks in advance,
