Hey again PeterAlevizos, follow these instructions:

1. Verify if you have the latest version of Windows Live Messenger by clicking on Help-->About Messenger and reading the Build number. You should see "Build 8.0.0792.00"

2. If you see any other number listed there, install the latest version of Messenger from http://get.live.com/messenger/overview .

3. Attempt to sign into Messenger again.

If you are still unable to sign in:

4. Delete the Contacts Cache folder by following the steps below:
> Locate the following folder, and then delete all the files that are in this folder:

C:\Documents and Settings\Contacts where is the login name you use to sign into windows.

> Locate the following folder, and then delete both folders contaied inside it:

C:\Documents and Settings\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows Live Contacts

5. Try signing into Messenger again.

Once you have followed all the instructions, let me know if your problem has been resolved.

Cool :whistling:

After Documents and settings, there should be a folder with your username

C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows Live Contacts

It's a hidden folder.

in explorer, press Tools (menu ba) > folder Options > view (tab)

there, choose Hidden Files and Folders > Display hidden Files and Folders

hope it helps,
greets
