MSN - Error message: The service is temporarily unavailable

April 2018

Each time I try to open MSN Messenger, I'm getting the following error message: "The service is temporarily unavailable".
  • Open IE and Go to Tools > Internet Options > Connections > LAN Settings > Deselect all options.
  • Also uncheck the "Work Offline" option.
