I run Windows XP Pro and Windows Live Mail, I switched my computer on this morning and discovered that Windows Live Messenger wasn't working - I couldn't logon !
I have narrowed the problem down to "You are not currently connected to NET Messenger Service".
I Googled the problem and have spent the last two hours trying to solve the problem using the Googled solutions to no avail.
Using a website called MEEBO I can still access Messenger.
Can anyone help me please.
Thank you.
Ian

Turning the firewall off didn't make any difference.
What I can't understand about this problem - I switch my computer off, went to bed, the next morning when I switched it on again Messenger didn't work.

have you tried system restore to before the problem?

I tried System Restore, but for some reason that made no difference.
However I am making progress of sorts !!
I have uninstalled "Windows Live" and installed Messenger 7 and this works perfectly.

Why this should be I have no idea - but I am now half content - lol
