[SOLVED] Windows Live Messenger can’t login, but Windows Messenger can

Print this post Email this post

This is happening at my friend’s PC. She uses Windows Live Messenger to chat for a long time when one day she can’t login. The MSN icon keeps on spinning forever, but the login process does not get completed. She found out that other PC in her house has no problem signing in, and Windows Messenger on her PC (the one built-in to Windows XP) also has no problem signing in. Turns out, the culprit is a registry entry. To fix this issue, I delete the following registry entry:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\MSNMessenger

After I deleted the key, her account and my account can login on that PC.
