I had that problem a couple of months ago. Tried all kinds of things to get it working and fixes from doing a google search and still no luck. Also uninstaled and reinstalled and still no luck. The only thing i could find that was strange was that i was using norton internet security at the time and i unistalled that at one poit trying to sort out msn. Instead of reinstalling it i installed avg antivirus and when i ran a full check on that it came up with 19 virus's that norton hadn't. I'm guessing it was one of those that stopped it working but stil never fixed it and i ended up reinstalling windows. With that info you might be able to work it out :)
