This is because Windows Live Messenger automatically attempts to logged in and you have your own different setting on xbox , you can not disable auto sign in. Just pressing enter Contacts> Settings> Profile> Auto-sign in> Messenger Disabled.

Re: Xbox live gives error, Can't sign in to messenger

In a Windows-based computer, log into Windows Live Messenger, check your Windows Live ID and password associated with your gamertag. Also verify that the correct ports are open on the network firewall. This issue can occur if the Windows Live Messenger server is available during maintenance. This problem can also occur if network problems let Windows Live Messenger to access the network, or if the necessary ports are not available.
