We can’t sign you in to Windows Live Messenger

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hi guys!


I use a mobile network modem for my computer and have confirmed with my service providers that it was working well and it’s because I can go to the network portal on Mozilla.  When I tried signing in to Messenger, I got this pop-up:


Windows Live Messenger

We can’t sign you in to Windows Live Messenger

Signing in to Windows Live Messenger failed because the service is temporarily unavailable. Please try again later.

Error code: 80048051

I tried a couple of times, yet I keep receiving back this window.  Any help please.

In this case, you might have installed different browsers on your desktop such as Internet Explorer, Netscape, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, and the like.  Make sure that neither one of them is offline.  Double check if the Internet Explorer is working properly because usually the problem takes place here. Put it back online then sign in with your Windows Live Messenger.

For an alternative solution, you can also restart MSN by opening the Task Manager (Ctrl + Alt + Del or Ctrl + Shift + Esc). Click the 'Processes' tab then search for 'msnmsgr.exe'. Once found, press the 'End Process' Tab. Exit the Task Manager. Try to log in with MSN.

I hope this article helped you.
