  1. I could sign in fine with Windows Live Messanger 2009 Beta, then I upgraded to the final release of software, and I can't login, i keep getting error code 8100030d, anyone have any thoughts on how I can fix the problem and log into my Windows Live Messanger.

    Thank's

    Usual cause of the error:
    Uninstall the beta version.

    For firewall block:
    If neither of these solves the problem, please post back.

    Problem Solved

    I disabled my AVG Web shield protection and the Messanger Worked!

    I have the same problem as the OP but have never used AVG or Zone Alarm.

    I'ce tried disabling my AV software (Avast) but no joy.

    If I have a previous version of Messenger Plus installed I can't find it...

    hi Kua

    Uninstall your current version of Windows Live Messenger and download a previous version from one of these sites .... http://www.filehippo.com/download_msn_messenger/ .... http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...f1-79ea-4066-8ba0-ddbed94864fc&displaylang=en (version 8.1 - still very stable) .... http://www.softpedia.com/get/Internet/Chat/Instant-Messaging/Windows-Live-Messenger-9.shtml (latest non-beta version) ....

    Try to stay away from the Beta versions - they tend to have many, many bugs. Let me know if this works.

    Thanks Spyder. I did try running 8.5 but it said it needed to download and install the latest version before it could run :p . I'll give 8.1 a bash however.
