Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.

MSN Instant Messenger is unable to connect with error 0x81000301. What do I do?

It's kind of hard to say what might be causing this problem, but I did find a very helpful thread of ideas to try out on BigBlueBall.com; a site dedicated to instant messaging.

When I attempt to sign into msn it gives me that error code and says I may not be connected to the internet...my internet is working fine, I have no viruses, I've even called shaw cable and tried everything they told me to do and it still didnt work...I've disconnected the internet and reconnected it, used a registry cleaner..and I am unable to use system restore to a point when msn was working fine. This all started when I installed 6.2, I have no idea what else to do...any ideas?

Hi Guys....
i had the same problem....some told me to register dll and reinstall: firewall, antivirus, IE and even Operating system...after questioning Microsoft database i realized that the problem is in Winsock.....so i searched a tool (called WinsockXPFix.exe good for winxp) on the internet, download it to an isolate zone on my hard drive check viruses free and install it, after reboot the problem was solved!!!

heya guys,
as far as i can tell msn has only ever brought this up wen u do hav something wrong with ur pasword although yesterday i set up a wireless network to connect my main comp to 2 laptops and now it has stopped connecting me to MSN aghhh its so fustrating. i do believe there is an answer somewhere on the net but i cant find it and hav been trying to 4 the past 4 hours. if u hav just connected to a wireless network i believe it has something to do with the internet explorer connection settings in tools found in both msn and internet explorer. hope some of this makes sense. and if anyone finds an answer, advice or wants to chat about this my email is kneecap89@aol.com put 'MSN probs' in subject and i'll get back to u and hopefully 2 searching for an answer will b quicker than one.
Rosie
P.s if u dont want to email i will b checking bac here for any developments

Leo
September 27, 2004 7:21 PM

That would be 0x81000365 - everything I've seen so far seems to point at firewalls blocking things. Check your firewall settings to see if perhaps that's the issue.

0x81000301 - ERROR:
Close MSN Messenger completely until the tray icon is gone.

- Windows 2000 or Windows XP users
1) Click Start > Run
2) Type: %appdata%\Microsoft and press enter.
3) Right-click the MSN Messenger folder and rename it.

Now restart MSN Messenger and try to sign in again...

- Windows 98 or Millenium users

1) Click Start > Run
2) Type: %windir% and press enter.
3) Open Application Data and then the Microsoft folder.
4) Right-click the MSN Messenger folder and delete it.

Note: if you're using Profiles with Windows 98/ME, you'll need to go to the Profiles folder, choose your username and then go to the Application Data folder (then continue with the same
process). If you don't know if you have Profiles setup, most likely you do not (if you don't have Profiles folder in the Windows folder, then you aren't).

I ahve the same prob an error message.

I ws thinkin-how mny of the ppl above r on aol? Mayb they dnt wnt u 2 use msn an insted, their own crappy AIM(aol instnt messngr).

For the time being, i use www.e-messenger.net-its a website that acts the same as msn except u cn only chat-u cnt play games or do audio/video messages.

Also, when i use IE, i cant go on, among others, the following websites:
-microsoft.com
-hotmail.com
-amazon.co.uk
-ebay.co.uk
but these work fine on aol's browser.

Just 2 complicate things-i had a neighbour who used 2 b on aol, but he cud do all of these ok on his pc!

Please post a solution-im getting really p'd off with it.

There is a major problem with AOL. My advice to anyone is to scrap it, i've been trying to persuade my mum for years but she won't because she wants the parental controls for my sisters:(
I have been using MSN on AOL for years but with difficulties...i recently installed a wireless network and it hasn't worked since. I cannot access secure websites through any browser other than AOLs. AOL are trying tocontrol peoples lives...they just want you to use their IM service...their Media players..their browsers. Only advice to people with problems...switch ISPs. If ever come accross a permanent solution i'll post. Until then e-messenger.net is a good idea but its so slow and annoying you may aswell not bother.

HI this is sam and the problem created by the msn the one listed up is normally due to the blocking of a port.
To over come this might be very difficult, however till I find a solution for us you must keep the msn working via this link

Just type in the ID and Password and keep working. see ya guys later may be ;)

hey i have got the solution............. mmm just uninstall it and go to the start button click on run and type "regedit" in that the 2nd and the 3rd tabs do the same. Click on software>> Microsoft>> Msn messnger and delete it, do the same with both.
Now download the laterst msn messenger from msn site and install it ........... For me it is working great (DO NOT RESTART YOUR COMPUTERS AT ALL)

i got a possible soloution, should work im not sure but you could always try: reformatting your computer are last but least buying a new PC they are currently on the market for $700 us dollars. That should fix this problem with your MSN Messenger. post another message telling me how you went. Thanks

I had the same problem with my msn... couldn't get on it and tried everything. Finally I tried Pheng's solution and it works just fine now... thanks Pheng! His solution is as follows:

"start > run > and type
regsvr32 softpub.dll."

I found that Norton firewall was blocking my MSN 6.2. It seems that Norton blocks MSN as a default when installed. To fix it:

Open Norton Firewall
Click "Personal Firewall"
Click "configure"
Click "Program control"
Look for "Microsoft Windows Messenger"
(Ignore "Microsoft MSN Messenger")

*If you can not find "Microsoft Windows Messenger" then click "add" and browse for the file MSNMSGR.EXE (usually in "\program files\msn messenger")

It will be set to "automatic" which if you look will be set to 'block'.
Re-configure to allow access.
Close MSN and then open.
It should now work!!

I am running win 98 and I tried all the options listed here to fix this problem. I upgraded to MSN 7.0 beta and still had problems. I dont have any control over the firewall settings here as it is done by an external company so was hoping it was nothing to do with that. I suddenly noticed today after sending a message to MSN customer support, that my Norton was also not working. My IE 6.0 had started prompting me for lots of things at the same time MSN stopped working properly.

I tried all the norton solutions to find out why norton antivirus was not working and one of the solutions was to fix my IE 6.0 by going to settings and control panel and add/remove software. Then to click on IE 6.0 and add/remove and then clicking on repair IE 6.0. After resetting my pc, MSN works perfect and so did Nortons.

Maybe try this.

Wayne
January 14, 2005 4:51 PM

You need to disable any type of firewall! Or internet security program! Then if it works you have to add MSN Messenger to firewall with full permitions to access the internet! If not it won't work! So go to firewall options add a program or enable or permit, something like that and add this extention

C:\Program Files\MSN Messenger\msnmsgr.exe

Good luck!

MSN Error in Version 7 Beta: 80072eff

Ok, went through loads of fixes here and no luck. Then realised that the other day I had been playing with proxies in Internet Explorer (Me a Firefox fan so hadn't realised IE still had settings there that didn't exist)

Now by all accounts MSN shouldn't give a damn what the IE proxy is set to as it has its own proxy settings. On that note however, as soon as I removed the proxy details MSN worked.

As soons as I put them back, MSN failed to log on.

What is interesting is that if I logged on to MSN, then changed the proxy. MSN would still let me chat. If I then exited it and try to logon again, it failed.

Moral of story, Make sure you have an either no Proxy or an active Proxy in your IE.

May be other fixes out there, but this is the only one I have found so far.

(PS only installed v7 beta cos v6.2 was giving me jip - Presumeably for the same reason, but with a different error message)

Good Luck

~~~~~~FOR THOSE ON AOHELL WITH PROBS (MAYBE OTHERS)~~~~~~~~~~~

hi all, the following might be useful to you guys...

1) For those on Aohell trying to get ebay, hotmail etc to work in internet explorer on wireless networks, you need to use PPPoA not PPPoE, with NAT on and your Firewall off. Now you should be able to see the sites!

2)a word to the wise, make sure your firewall is off on your router (if it has one), if not make sure that in norton or whatever firewall software you are using that msn messneger is not blocked!

3)renaming the msn messenger folder WILL HAVE NO EFFECT!

4)for most of you the problem is that msn is being port blocked, so you need to check that your proxy is set correctly, or if you can throw it out, i hate proxy settings anyway!

5)If your reconfiging parts of your rotuer/wireless setup 9 times out of 10 you will need to re-start the router before the changes take place! (note- not the pc, the router)

6)try resetting all values to default in IE connections, MSN and Firewall, if it was working before then this can resolve the problem! remmber your old settings tho! this seems silly but oftern cant help!

7)those on XP can try rolling back this *could* help, although if its a router/firewall thing which 99% of the time it is then this will have no effect!

8) oooo yeah bin windoze and use linux ;-)

Hi guys,

Some of the errors could be caused by problems on your system. However, recently msn had been doing some maintenance on their server. Yesterday i was getting errors for a few hours before getting back on last night. Now today i getting a different error. So one way ot know for sure if it is not your system that is acting up is ask you friends before uninstalling and doing other stuff to your pc.

Ash
February 8, 2005 12:53 PM

(uninstalling-reinstalling-repairing etc.) also, i just wanna add that i tried using e-messenger.net to get me onto msn BUT EVEN THEY WERE HAVING PROBLEMS!!! jesus! anyway...plz help, thanx if u can, ash oh and btw, feel free to add me to msn (if it ever works again) or take a look at my website: www.freewebs.com/findthecolour :D hot babez welcome ;) lmao!

1) Restart Computer

2) Sign on MSN account

3) If it don't work, press retry a few times, and eventually you'll sign on

ThX if u can sort it out!

Mike
February 9, 2005 9:45 AM

Looks like the IM problems has been fixed...the data center at microsoft was having issues, my guess would be because of the latest IM worm that was out. This morning most of my users were prompted to install a hotfix for thier Windows Messenger (not so for the users with MSN messenger which is diff)after installing it thier computers restarted and were able to log on.
The rest of this messege is for Craig who posted at 2/9/05 @ 9:30am....
Craig, I have had problems with the Dlink router before, they have a tendencey to be locked down a little to much...i have remote users that cannot remote to the office because of d-link. Look and see if you can open up the IM ports both TCP/UDP and see if that helps...or buy Linksys router for around $50 and save your self the headache. I don't know the port numbers but i am sure a google search could get them in short order for you....I hope that helps.

Craig
February 9, 2005 10:07 AM

hey mike i know the msn port num it 80 but i aint ne good on computers so i dont know what TCP/UDP means lol can u b more specific and tell me how 2 sort it out, also there is a msn messenger which u can use on the internet and it lets me go on that using aol. also the dlink routerdoesnt lemme connect to certain websites eg microsoft.Is tehre ne way i can make my ie run through aol. cos i think msn messenger runs throught the ie settings

The problem seems to be related with HTTPS. If you note ,all the applications not currently running (MSN Messenger, Hotmail, Yahoo mail, etc) have HTTPS in common. How it happened , or how it can be fixed I do not know.....yet. I have one Windows 2000 working fine and a Windows XP that can not connect to anybody using HTTPS.

I can connect to MSN Messenger with my old dialup Internet sevice provider [at&t]but not with netscape Internet service provider and gives me this error message. I have been trying to fix this problem for nearly 2 days.
Any suggestions why this is happening? and helping me out to fix this problem is greatly appreciated

Victor
February 12, 2005 4:54 AM

I found a corrupted firewall Software causes the 0x8100301 problem, at least in my case. I suggest to either desinstall or reconfigure any Firewall software you may have. And try .... The Firewall was not allowing the PC work with HTTPS correctly. The access to MS Messenger, and the access to other 'secure' pages like Hotmail...etc, was disrupted. Some hacker found the way to attack and modify the Firewall Software. (The last part is a theory, a feasible one though)

robert
February 12, 2005 9:34 PM

i dont get this damn thing(0x81000301 error), ive been getting it fro about a week now,ever sinse i got the update for msn :(...and i have no idea why its not working. They really should make error reports explain themselves more.

deanej
February 13, 2005 1:50 AM

I had the same problem today. Error 0x8100301 for MSN 6.2. My wife had just updated to this version.

I looked at my firewall logs and it looked like my wife had inadvertently also chosen to prevent internet access when the Zone Labs Integrity Client message had popped up the first time it was used.

I checked the Program Controls in Zone Labs and it did not say that this application was blocked. However, I removed the entry which allowed Zone Labs to issue the same pop-up request for internet access the next time I used MSN. (You may want to configure your firewall to issue these requests if it is capable). Once I allowed this access the problem was gone.

In summary, I think this suggests that this symptom is caused by blocking of the application (either by port, protocol or explicit application). Playing with your firewall is a good start. However, you have no control over servers belonging to your ISP (DNS, DHCP and PROXYs) - if it does boil down to that. In that case you will need to raise a problem with your ISP.

I too am having this error. It gives me the error code 0x81000301. It somehow effects both Windows Messenger as well as MSN messenger but does not effect my Hotmail account accessed by Outlook express. I have tried uninstalling both Msn messenger and windows messenger, as well as deleted all registry entries in relevance along with removed all records of it in my firewalls and still nothing. It was working fine two nights ago, and now suddening, it doesn't. If anyone comes up with the solution that WORKS, I would greatly appreciate it if you could spread the word. I have noticed that this occurance seems to be effecting a lot of weary computer users. Any help is greatly appreciated.

hi, im having problems with accessing hotmail at the moment too, i have no idea what has happened, everytime i try to run internet explorer and go to the hotmail page , it comes to the enter address bit as usual and when i enter my details the page begins to download and then the explorer closes itself, the same thing occurs when i go to yahoo.com as well as when i use aol to browse the internet, everytime i try to access certain pages the program closes itself.
I have used all spyware programs such as spydoctor, spy bot search and destroy and microsoft anti spyware but when some programs are found and quarantined the program still occurs, is there anyone with this problem or had this problem? i would like any suggestions possible thanks very much.

The problem you are all experiencing is your MTU settings. This needs to be changed on the router and your network card. The setting that always seems to work in 1492. The setting on your router is normally on the DSL setup screen. to change it on your network card try getting DRTCP this will allow you to change your network cards MTU setting.
HOPE THIS HELPS YOU ALL!!!

Another check to see if it is your MTU settings is www.microsoft.com also www.ebay.com . If you cant get these websites its your MTU settings 100%.

I have the same problem and I now I can sign in to MSN Mesenger.
If you have Sygate Personal Firewall installed (wheter it is active or not), you MUST uninstalled it, then you can sign in to MSN Mesenger (after you update to v6.2.0205).

This is really starting to piss me off I did not change anything except for downloading the new version of MSN. Please tell me what to do I have tryed everything

You must wait. As MSN is down. Even Gaim won't connect to the server.

If you go to the MSN messenger web site it keeps you informed of this very problem. But seeing as how you can't even connect to that page it should tell you that indeed it's not just YOU. It's them.

hi everyone, i got the same error, first it may require manually fixing the registry and then installing msn, go to google.com and type 0x81000302 and click on the im feeling luck button on google, this page will show you how, if all else fails, try winsockfix.exe, or even try www.passport.net, with msn closed, sign in with IE only, then close the page, restart msn.

Reregister the SSL-related dynamic link libraries (DLLs) to make sure that they are correctly installed. To do this, follow these steps:

Click Start, click Run, type regsvr32 softpub.dll, and then press ENTER.

c. Click Start, click Run, type regsvr32 wintrust.dll, and then press ENTER.

e. Click Start, click Run, type regsvr32 initpki.dll, and then press ENTER.

April 18, 2005 2:57 AM

Try reducing the length of your password.

I upgraded to V7 of Messenger and could not log in. I had a very long password which got me into Hotmail but not Messenger. This drove me nuts and Microsoft were not much help.

I registered every bit of code; changed all the security settings and did about 50 things to the PC - all to no avail.

Messing around with my passport did not help either.

I cut my password down to 8 characters and it worked straight away.

It might not work for you but it is well worth trying.

Most of this issues can be solved by performing the following steps:

Make sure other than msn messenger connection , internet works fine .

There is no need for reinstalling msn messenger again but if you want you can try .. Go to control panel --> add/remove programs and uninstall msn messenger
Then use the setup file or download it from messenger.msn.com and install it again.


If the above steps does not work,

The problem maybe if u are using a different browser such as Mozilla and MSN only takes the default IE HTTPS settings.

Please enable the HTTPS in IE and if IE is able to connect to websites, please restart your IE amd MSN messenger and check if you are able to connect.

Try this. Found it on the Microsoft forums.

===========================
Dear all if you have not heard simply add these addresses to the following
file that should be opened with notepad and MSN will work.

C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts - (When you open the ETC folder open
the HOSTS file using notepad).

insert the following addresses:

65.54.239.80 messenger.hotmail.com
65.54.239.80 dp.msnmessenger.skadns.net

(INSERT THEM DIRECTLY UNDER THE OTHER 2 ADDRESSES AND ALIGN THEM WITH TAB.)

I found a solution that is simple and works !!!
I was told by the experts that it would not work, but guess what. Worked fine and fixed the problem.

MAJOR CREDIT to ALPESH NAKAR'S BLOGSPHERE

Do exactly as follows:-

Click start
- Type: cmd (but don't hit Enter)
- Right-click cmd.exe when it appears under Applications
- Click Run As Administrator
- Type the following: netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled
- Press enter

Then just sign into WLM; you don't even have to reboot.

Happy Times everyone.
