Hi,

I am using Windows Live Messenger almost all the time to communicate with peers. But on one occasion, when I was about to use Windows Live Messenger, I was not able to login. The error message box came to display that says, We can't sign you in to Windows Live Messenger, its also suggest that service is temporarily unavailable.

Signing in to Windows Live Messenger failed because the service is temporarily unavailable.

Error code: 80048820

After a little wait, I discovered that my other friends can now login to, I tried to login but unfortunately it fails, I checked on my internet connection and it works great, since I can surf the internet. So I decided to reboot my computer and reinstall the messenger client software, it's still the same. The last thing I found out is, when I use another account, I can log in.

Please share some Ideas.

The problem you are facing is caused if you have an incorrect date/time set in your computer. This may be caused due to a virus or you may have set the date/time wrongly.

To fix this:

1. Right-click the time on the bottom-right corner of the screen.
2. From the menu, select the “Adjust Date/Time” option.

In XP, select the tab with “Date & Time”.

In Vista/7:

  1. Select the Date and Time tab.
  2. In Vista/7, click the Adjust date and time button.
  3. In Vista, click the Continue button.
  4. To change the date, from the calendar on the left, select a date which is correct.
  5. To change the time, under the clock, use the spin box to change the time.
  6. Make sure the date/time is correct.
  7. Close all windows:


In XP, in the Date and Time Properties window, click OK.

In Vista/7:

In the Date and Time Settings window, click OK.
In the Date and Time window, click OK.

Lastly but not least it is better if you also make sure that your antivirus is up to date and run a full system scan.
