Hi, I'm new here so I hope I'm posting this in the proper location.
Hopefully someone can provide a solution to this problem. Recently, my Messenger for Mac 7, which I installed over a year ago, has not been letting me log in. I was receiving an error that said: 'Sign in to MSN Messenger failed because the service is not available to you or you may not be connected to the internet.' I scoured the internet for answers and found that clearing the account history worked for me.

Now I can sign in, only problem is that every time I sign in, it crashes after a few seconds, says an error has occurred and quits. I have been searching over the few days for a solution and have yet to find one that doesn't involve switching to Adium or aMSN, which I would prefer to avoid if at all possible.

I'm going to include the error report, just in case it helps.
