  1. Recently and out of the sudden this problem happened, I can not login to Windows Live Messenger on the PC (win2003)[i.e. just sit and spin forever and nothing ever happens],,,,but I am not getting any error code

    I uninstalled Windows Live Messenger and reinstall it again same problem.

    I uninstalled Windows Live Messenger, and install V7.5 same problem.

    Please see below pic to get the idea what does it happen when I login

    I do not have firewall installed yet

    See the DEP as well below

    I tried signing in to Web Messenger and see whether that succeeds, yes it did succeed

    Date, time and time zone on the computer.

    I used some registry cleaners and that fixed the problem.

    It was "CleanMyPC Registry Cleaner" program.

    Not in the TechSpot list: http://www.techspot.com/downloadid17by4.html

    Anyway, I downloaded it: http://www.registry-cleaner.net/
    It says "evaluation Copy: 15 days left"
    Well I only need it for one. (Lol)

    Not sure if it removes any error yet, after the big scan. (do you have to have it registered?)

    Edit:
    Nope, it must be registered to fix entries

    In the bin the program goes

    Edit2:

    It tried to call home to un-install too (poor thing)
    I must remember to advise users not to purchase it too
