Windows Live Messenger Error 81000490 Can't Login?

    Question

  • I have been using windows 7 Ultimate for about 6 months now. About a month ago I started getting error code 81000490 when I tried to login to my account. Then I tried the solution provided by Microsoft like deleting the contact file. and reinstalling WLM. Deleting the contact file and then when I try to login it worked for like a week. But now It doesnt work. So I Uninstalled WLM and Reinstalled again. For a try I installed WLM 2009. By using that I could login from my account but when I try from WLM 2011 I get the same error. But I can login from other MSN accounts. I have no idea now why this is happening. PLEASE HELP ME!!!

  • I'm having a similar problem and the error code: 81000490

    Bing pointed me to this thread, but obviously there's no answer here.

  • Strange, bing should point you to the Windows Live Messenger solution page first, at least it did for me.
