Windows 7: Messenger Error 80070005

Messenger Error 80070005

Hey guys,

I'm trying to start up messenger, but it gives me the error code 80070005.
Did a little research, says it might be permission errors. I have made sure that I have full permission for my account. Still no luck.

I'm having similar issues with my zune account, it won't also won't log me in either.

Any ideas?

Try the following method to solve the problem (for those who set a password on the pc):

1. Close Msn completely (make sure is exit completely)

2. Go to Start --> control panel --> user accounts

3. Remove the password of your account

4. Open Msn and sign in (you should be able to sign in).

5. Go to Start --> control panel --> user accounts and set password again (Don't sign out msn, make sure msn is signed in when you set the password.
