Windows 7: 80040005 error on Windows Live Messenger

80040005 error on Windows Live Messenger

Hi,
I am currently receiving the error message 80040005 whenever I try to sign into WLM. I get this error without msn even attempting to sign in.
I have tried deleting the contacts folder with no luck. I am able to sign in via hotmail, so it's not a problem with my account. I run it as administrator. I tried to run in safe mode with networking but it wouldn't allow me to connect to the internet, and I get the same problem when I try to just load basic services. I have the latest version of msn, and have installed all the updates that I can. I have no viruses or malware.

Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you

Perform a SFC Scan

1. Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Allow

2. Type the following command, sfc /scannow and then press ENTER:

(A message will appear stating that 'The system scan will begin'. Be patient because the scan may take some time)

3. If any files require a replace SFC will replace them. You may be asked to insert your Windows 7 DVD for this process to continue

4. If everything is okay you should, after the scan, see the following message "Windows resource protection did not find any integrity violations"

5. After the scan has completed, close the command prompt window, restart the computer. (TIP repeat scan 3 times )
