Hi folks and friends, I am posting here an image of an error message, I encountered this error message when I sign on to Windows Live Messenger Beta.
Windows Live Messenger
We were unable to sign you into Windows Live Messenger Beta, possibly because of a
problem with your Internet connection. Please try again later.
Windows Live Messenger has made several failed attempts to sign you in . Your
firewall may be blocking Windows Live Messenger from connecting to the service.
Please review your firewall settings. See the retailer’s instruction for more
Error code: 80072745
When I read the instruction on the error message, it tells me to check my internet connection, as I am checking my internet connection, there is nothing wrong with my connection, I also check on my firewall, there is no restriction on the connection for Windows Live Messenger Beta, that is why I am wondering what other reasons that lead to this error, please help me find solution to my problem, thanks a lot for reading my post.
Error Code 80072745: Unable to sign in to Windows Live Messenger
Error code “80072745” is a known issue in Windows Live Messenger which is usually caused by a problem in the internet connection or the setting in Windows Internet Explorer. If you encounter this error, the problem could be with your internet connection so try troubleshooting your connection. If your computer is connected to a Wi-Fi router with a network cable, disconnect the cable from the network port then plug it back in.
If this doesn’t work, disconnect the other end of the cable from the Wi-Fi router then connect it back. If this doesn’t work either, restart the router. If the router has a power button, press it to turn it off then unplug it from the power for about twenty (20) seconds. Press any button on the router to discharge any leftover power or to power cycle.
After this, plug the router back to the power and turn it on. If this doesn’t work, start Windows Internet Explorer then go to “Tools” then select “Internet options.” In “Internet Options” screen, go to “Connections” tab then under “Local Area Network (LAN) settings” section at the bottom, click “LAN settings.”
In “Local Area Network (LAN) Settings” dialog, uncheck “Use a proxy server for your LAN (These settings will not apply to dial-up or VPN connections)” then click “OK.” Back to “Internet Options” screen, go to “Advanced” tab then scroll down to “Security” section. Uncheck “Check for server certificate revocation.” Check “Use SSL 2.0” and “Use SSL 3.0” then click “OK.”
