    Sometimes this error can also be due to the AVG 8.0 Internet security software. The following steps can help you in addressing the error by configuring the AVG 8.0 software’s web shield.
    • Open the AVG interface
    • Double click on the web shield component
    • Now switch on the instant messaging tab
    • Uncheck instant messaging protection option.
    • Click on “Save Changes” to confirm the changes

    Even after these issues persist then try to deactivate the Web Shield component completely. If your are still unable to connect to the windows Live Messenger service then check the setting of the AVG Firewall component.
