    The check mark won't stay clear. When I reopen my internet explorer the setting returns to checked. It doesn't matter if I press apply or OK. My messenger problem still isn't solved as well.

    The easiest way to fix this problem is to run a registry cleaner.

    can u give me auther way to repair it i did every thing but no progress

  • Sevan

    Thank you so much. Almost 6 hours trying to solve the problem. It worked for me …

  • We found a solution to the problem of gettin an error trying to log in to windows live messenger that list wlcomm.exe and rpawinet.dll. Just rename rpawinet.dll and you can login fine. rpawinet.dll is a NetIdentity HTTP Filter from Novell, Inc. *WARNING* Do not rename this file if you are using the Novell ZENworks

    Desktop Management Agent to login to a ZENworks Middle Tier Server or

    are using the Myapps.html web site to launch ZENworks applications

    (i.e., if you are in an “Agent Only” with no Novell Client

    environment). Renaming the file will result in the inability to

    authenticate to the Middle Tier or launch applications from the

    MyApps.html web page.”

  • UHSpartan,

    If it won't stay clear, then the problem is now with your Internet Explorer. You might want to repair/reinstall IE.

  • wow thanks a lot…..!

    I was really isolated from my business team since Windows Live was blocked.

  • Moshe

    go to C:Program FilesWindows LiveContacts

    right click on wlcomm.exe go to properties – compatibility and then put a v sigh on "run this program in compatibility with windows 95"

    this should fix it (odd but it works)

  • Correct your date and time on your computer!!! That should work!!! THanks to
