Windows 7: Windows Live Messenger kept disconnecting

Windows Live Messenger kept disconnecting

Hi guys. I am on Win 7 Ultimate and my messenger kept logging out every 40 seconds or so. After I logged in,my contact list would be different each time.(I am confident that my friends did not come and go at the time.) For around 40 seconds, I would be able to open chat windows, type them a message, and it will then bounce back.Shortly after that I'd be logged off and it'll reconnect.
After 6-20 times of logging in and out desperately, it would then magically log back with the correct contact list and it would stop disconnecting.

I have tried reinstall Live Messenger(6 times), checked the 'Sign me out of all other places when I sign in' box in option.

Please help! I have reinstall Win 7 too many times it consumed all my free time and now my social life(MSN) is about over....

PS: Any advise will be appericiated.Helping me will make you the most awesome person ever!!

OK I just fixed my issue. My issue was basically every time I tried to sign in, it would just come up saying the service is temporarily unavailable. To fix this I:

1) downloaded and installed 'revo uninstaller'
2) used revo uninstaller to uninstall the whole 'windows live essentials' package
3) deleted all the registry entries and files that revo uninstaller found (like 80 registry entries and 6 files)
4) reinstalled live messenger.

Bingo! worked like a charm.
Seems like a faulty install the first time can effect it down the track, revo uninstaller cleans everything up that gets left behind when you do uninstall it.

Also, I did not have to restart my PC at all.

Downloaded and Installed Revo Uninstaller Pro its a 30 day trial. Uninstalled Windows Live Messenger 2011 and cleaned the registry. Reinstalled Windows Live Messenger 2011, didn't solve the problem. Still disconnecting and reconnecting
