I have been having this problem for quite a while now. I have contacted Microsoft but their responses are nonsense.
Basically I have two Hotmail accounts, which I both use with Windows Live Messenger.
(Key: Acc 1 = Primary Account
Acc 2 = Secondary Account)
One day, I start up WLM as normal and try to sign in with Acc 1 but I get the 80004005 error. I think OK, it does this sometimes so I should just try and try again - but to no avail.
So then I try logging in with Acc 2 - Perfect sign in, takes about 5 seconds.
So now I am left baffled as to why one account works perfecty and another doesn't work at all. :eek:
If anyone has encountered this problem or know how to solve it, I will be really greatful. :cheesy:
Thank you, :lol:
