I am having the following error when trying to connect to messenger

80072745

I have done all the troubleshooting steps and nothing, when doing the msn tests everything is correct but still I cannot connect to the service, also i have addedd the following to my hosts file:

65.54.239.80 messenger.hotmail.com

65.54.239.80 dp.msnmessenger.akadns.net

and nothing, reinstalled the app and still nothing, also checked my time and date and still receive the same error, there are no restrictions although in windows firewall.

Can anyone help?

Thanks
