How To fix error 80048820 on Msn messenger
Since you can’t immediately login, remember that you can try logging into the Web Messenger,
at least until you can restore your normal Messenger functionality:
However, here are few suggestions you should check/try if you haven’t already.
1. The date on your computer needs to be set properly — double click the clock verify that
the time and date are set.
2. If your password information is not saved, verify that you are typing it in with the
correct case (uppercase or lowercase).
3. Change your password @ https://login.passport.com/ChangePW.srf to
something smaller (under 10-12 characters), then try signing in again.
4. If you use a firewall (like ZoneAlarm, Norton Internet Security etc. ), it’s possible
that Messenger doesn’t have the correct rights to access the Internet, especially since you
upgraded. You may need to re/add Messenger to the allowed list of programs in your firewall
if this is the case.
5. If you disabled your firewall in the past, it still may be blocking Messenger — try
restarting it and see if that helps the situation. You also might try uninstalling an
installed firewall, to verify that it isn’t causing a problem (even if it is disabled).
6. Clear your IE cache and cookies — open Internet Explorer, click the Tools menu, then
Internet Options, then click the Delete Files button, and when that’s complete click the
Delete Cookies button.
7. Check your IE Security settings — open Internet Explorer, click the Tools menu, then
Internet Options, then Advanced tab, scroll to the Security section, and verify that “Check
for server certificate revocation” is unchecked. Also verify that ‘Use SSL 2.0′ and Use SSL
3.0’ is checked, then click OK.
8. Click Start, then Run, and enter the following:
then click OK
and do the same for the following:
Register softpub.dll using the regsvr32.exe tool.
Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type regsvr32 softpub.dll and then click OK.
Restart MSN Messenger
Make sure your router/modem is compatible with PPPoA/ADSL2 if you have it.
Make sure you have the latest version of MSN. http://messenger.live.com
1. Check proxy settings
Tools -> Options -> Connection -> Adv settings
– No proxy should be configured unless you use a tool such as Simp to encrypt MSN.
In this case it will be something like
SOCKS: 127.0.0.1 port: 11863
2. If you use a tool like Simp
open Simp, goto File ->Configure -> Connection
disable all settings (Automatic Detect Settings, Use Proxy server, My router supports MSN protocol)
now it should all work
If you route through another proxy from software such as Simp then there will be more proxy configuration in Simp pointing to a Socks Proxy. You can try changing the MSN configuration to this proxy directly to see if this helps.
Try telnet to the SOCKS proxy to see if it is open to you:
Start -> run -> cmd <enter>
telnet proxy.address port (ex: telnet 192.168.1.1 444)
Disabling the proxy configuration in IE can work as well, unless you need it.
But proxying is good, you’d want both to work seamlessly.
Hope this helps..
First, open IE,
