Hi there guys, I've come across a real pain in the neck with Windows live Messenger 2011
Since i installed Windows Live essentials 2011 and the aforementioned messenger.
Messenger has had no end of issues signing in properly and had gotten progressively worse.
I seem to connect OK , i logs in and loads my contact list, but it shows no one online. even when i know there are people online. people can send me messages, but i cannot reply.
sometimes i t will log in perfectly first time, but more often not. There dose not seem to be any logical pattern to the successful log ins, logging in other placers works fine, including I phone and other pc's connected via the same rougher.
Messenger shows all places with active log ins on the account and can log them out via the menu, and shows new log ins Realtime from the other locations.
Even when the log in is unsuccessful , being no ones showed as online and i cant send any messages.
I've tried installing several times, repairing installations, clearing caches, scrubbing registries, dissabling firewalls AV's and NAT. nothing seems to directly effect this issue.
95% of the time it wont log in correctly 5% works with out an issue
I get no authentication failed, no incorrect password, no error code, just a list of offline people.
