Windows 7

might sound funny, but i seem to have experienced somewhat of an identical incident as yours. live messenger was working fine for me. installed win 7 this evening, installed live messenger (the latest one).. not signing in.. showing different results everytime.. "contact list not available", "gateway offline", "cannot reach server" etc..

having no solutions, i have started using pidgin. live messenger still aint working.

It seems that this program 'pidgin' is the culprit. Must admit I've never heard of it.

In MSN, go to Accounts -> Your MSN account -> Edit Account -> Advanced.

What should be there is:

Port: 1863

Use HTTP: not checked
Show Custom Smileys: checked

Proxy Type: Use Global Proxies.

If you don't have these settings, try them. If you do have these settings, try checking the Use HTTP box.

Also, check Windows Firewall that that port isn't blocked.
