I can't seem to get windows live messenger to open. Everything was working as usual until it randomly stopped responded and I was forced to end task. After ending task it will no longer open at all, i click on the icon and nothing happens, it isn't running in the task list either. I've uninstalled and reinstalled many times, nothing seems to comes up. Internet is working fine, firewalls are turned off, it just doesn't seem to ever open the program to allow me to sign in.

I am now suffering the same problem, earlier my other computer was having this problem and I tried full reinstall of the messenger but nothing now this pc is having the problem. Possible conflict with the new updates this week for windows

I don't think the windows updates are the problem, atleast not for me, my problem started almost a week and a half ago now. i've been emailing back and forth with msn support the whole time and nothing so far has solved my issue. it's completely non responsive now, i've uninstalled it completely for now since it seems that my yahoo messenger also has problems when msn is installed, once i uninstall yahoo is fine again. i don't get it at all.

same thing just happened to me today. It was working before, but not anymore. I opened MSN but nothing happens, but it does show up in the Task manager (under Processes). If I try to open MSN again, it will show up in the Process again. I can have multiple copy of wsnmsgr.exe in the process, but it won't actually open....

Alright people I think I have a possible solution. I got mine to work by reseting my router, I didn't know how this was fixing it but it was. So I looked more into it and it seems when someone on my network including myself starts msnmsgr.exe it creates exceptions in my routers firewall, but its adds so many it clogs the page and I can't delete them and once it hits the max exceptions msnmsgr.exe won't run anymore and I must reset my router once again to get it working. I am using the Dlink DI-604 with latest firmware. So give it a try reset your router and try running windows live messenger.

good luck,

Zigge

by reseting do u mean unplug it and plug it back in

I got mine to work by resetting the router.

I did it through my router's page. But I suppose you can just unplug the power to your router and reset that way.

3 ways to reset your router are:

1. Through the router itself.
2. Push the little reset button on your router for 30sec.
3. Unplug router for min 1 minute.

I have a solution, and I think it will work for most of you.

1. disconnect to the internet

2. Open MSN Live Messenger

3. in the Tool -> Preference, close the option "login me in when connected to internet"

4. Save the perference

5. Connect to the internet

6. Login.

Thank you for your advice! I almost thought I had it but a problem occurred.

Once I disconnect to the internet, Messenger does load. I tried changing the preferences like you suggested. After connecting again, WLM immediately freezes. After doing the whole procedure over and over again, with and without the preferences changed, it freezes right after I connect back on internet.

I hope someone can help me out

Reboot your router. First followed previous steps, then rebooted router after messenger freeze.
