This error might have occurred due to the failure of the .Net messenger service. To get more information, visit the link given below.

Get to know your messenger status through URL:

If the status is shown in green color, it indicates the messenger is working.

You have to delete the proxy settings in order to solve this problem. To delete the proxy settings, you can follow the instructions which I have given below.

After that open messenger. There select Options. Then click on the Connection. After that, go to Advance settings and there you will find SOCKS entries, delete them.

Click OK and after that again. OK.

There can be many causes of 81000306 error codes.

It may occur when .Net messenger service is facing problems. One or more servers at MSN which provides the services may be down. If that is the case, then this normally takes a few minutes or hours to resolve automatically. It may be a problem with your .Net framework. You may need to upgrade it to the latest .Net framework installed on your PC.

You can also check the solution by uninstalling and then reinstalling the MSN messenger to see if it works.

Another problem may be your proxy or firewall which is blocking your incoming connections. If you are on a network or installed an antivirus program, then this can also cause problems. Try to disable the firewall or ask your administrator to change the proxy settings on your PC.

Sometimes, this problem can also occur by an error in your router or LAN drivers (corrupt drivers etc.), Just try to roll back the LAN or router driver in device manager then reinstall. If you are still facing the problem, then uninstall the driver. Remove your LAN card. Plug it again and reinstall the driver to see if it works.

Hope it will help you find the solution to your problems.
