Hi,

Hope this information can help you. This is what you need to do.

 

  1. 1. Launch Messenger, but don't sign-in 
  2. 2. Click on the option to sign in with a different account 
  3. 3. Delete account History "click clear history"
  4. 4. Try signing in again.

Here is a link were you can get more info referring to that problem.

Hi Shane M Heck,

Here are a few things you could do to fix your problem with Microsoft Messenger:

1. Check the format of the picture you are trying to upload.

2. Convert the file to a common picture type like .JPG. You can do this in programs like Paint.

3. Try re-uploading your .JPG photo.

4. If this still does not work, try clearing up your Microsoft Messanger's account history before uploading the photo again.

Hope this works.
