i had the same problem and here is what i found out and it worked for me
keyports is to do with the cataloging and the log to clear the problem follow
these steps
click on start then run
type in cmd
click ok
type in the following :-- netsh winsock reset catalog
it will tell you to restart your pc do that
when you have restarted sign in to messenger as normal
on the first sign in it takes a little longer than normalbut do not worry after that it will sign in ok again
If it happens again just follow the steps above as it does happen every so often anyway
Thank you

You need to run it as an administrator.
If you go to the start menu, type in CMD, and right click the icon it should say 'run as administrator' that should sort it out.
You need to run cmd as administrator. Then it should work. :)
i am only 15 and have no idea how to get this working iv done everything on here so far and it wont work. iv even Tryid to uninstall it but it wont unstall
the best and easiest way is to exit the msn and restart it, always work for me :D
