Reason for Error 810003c1

Are you getting Error 810003c1: “We were unable to sign you in to the .NET Messenger Service” when trying to sign in to Messenger recently? Microsoft has cut off several countries from using Messenger, countries that are embargoed by the United States. These are: Cuba, Syria, Iran, Sudan and North Korea. The Windows Live Team says:

Microsoft has discontinued providing Instant Messenger services in certain countries subject to United States sanctions. Details of these sanctions are available from the United States Office of Foreign Assets Control.

  1. Hi, My comment isn’t about this error message but, another one similar. I’ve recently wanted to update my WLM to the latest version but was unable to & I got the following error message: “Error 0x80070643”. Now I can’t even download any older versions of it & I’m 100% clueless as to why. Can someone please help me out? I’d greatly appreciate it. Awaiting your reply via email. Have a great day/weekend. Dan.
