For some reason, I can't get the thing to work.

It says:

We are unable to sign you into MSN Messenger, possibly because of a problem with your Internet connection. Please try again later. 0x81000370

My internet seems to be working fine. The only thing I can think of is that some program is blocking it. Weird thing with Norton Internet Security though - every time I go to the Internet Access Control screen, I can't scroll to see what is blocked and unblocked. However, I see "Messenger" (with the MSN logo next to it) and it says "Permit All".

The only other thing I can see is that there is something wrong with my email address. For some reason, I can't sign into Hotmail either. It seems to work fine on Elad's computer, though. I hit 'Sign in' or 'I forgot my password' (which I didn't, I'm just trying to get through), and it immediately goes to "This Page Cannot Be Displayed". It's very odd - there is no loading time going to it, it is instant.

I have tried reinstalling MSN Messenger 6.1 several times to no avail.

Hopefully someone here can help. Thanks for reading.

Itz becuz you angered the computer gods when you abandoned you fledgling network. You should immediately set 2 AOL cd's on fire as a sacrifice to apease them. The more AOL Cd's you burn the better.
Besides- the web cam porn is way better on Yahoo.

Try disabling NIS all together and test.

or

Load Trillian and see if it works.

I agree with this, Norton has a bad habit of getting in the way of connections. When I uninstalled my Norton, all my internet connections worked great.

It says Norton is not protecting my computer. I'm running LiveUpdate now.

It still doesn't seem to explain why I am unable to log onto hotmail or any other passport sites...

I have learned that you have to remove norton totally from you system.

I found this out at work, when I worked for the automation group I had to deal with this all the time.

I would install "company software" which included Norton and I would have huge issues. I would un-install Norton, re-install the software (without Norton) and everything would work.

Remove Norton and try.

Live Update shut down my internet, period. DHCP client service refused to start.

EladEflow formatted, I'm not using ZoneAlarm. Everything is working fine now!
