The computer is a Compaq 700, Vista Home Premium, 3GB of RAM, MS Security Essential 2. Attempting to log into Messenger 2011 results in an Error 800488eb. I have tried the following, as per MS and othe web sites:
Nothing worked. A Google search shows hundreds of pages citing this problem with the most informative result being a year old post by an MSMVP stating MS is aware of the problem and working on it.
- Uninstall, clean registry, reinstall per step-by-step Microsoft Instructions.
- Reset Computer date and time.
- Do a repair install of Messenger.
- Check firewall.
- Create firewall exemption.
Has anyone managed to fix this?
