Could be the firewall blocking the neccessary ports. Check the program settings are allowing MSN through. Prehaps try turning the firewall off?

Failing that...

1) Uninstall Live
2) Do Windows/ Microsoft Updates
3) Download and reinstall Live

Now my only other thought if the above fails is Microsoft and their geninue advantage crap. I'm not sure but there is a chance if your running a *cough* version of XP then Live maybe having issues. Could fall back to 7.5, that should work.

Ah sweet, least it's sorted itself :D

When I googled the error code, there were mentions of users doing nothing and for some reason it just worked within 24 hours. Can't see the logic but then again it is Microsoft!
