Default Key ports in MSN. whats up?

When i try to log on to windows live messenger an error message comes up that says "we were unable to sign you on to windows live messenger. possibly because of a problem with your service or internet connection. Please make sure you are connected to the internet." Then it has an error code that says 81000306 Then there is a button for troubleshooting. I have everything besides something called key ports. If i didn't i wouldn't be writing right now. I know it is definetly not the computer because MSN has worked before. Does anyone know how to fix this?

My current Build

Windows XP SP 3 (Yeah pretty old)
Processor-Intel Core 2 Duo 6300@1.88 GHz
Ram-4 GB ram
Hard Drive-Maxtor 320Gb and external Freegate 250 GB
PNY Nvidia Verto 9500 GT 1GB
Too lazy to look up my Mobo but i know its Gigabyte

Do you have a Firewall thats been set to block MSN by any chance?
Open up one you may have, and check for MSN within the programs list to check it hasn't been. Thats all I can think of.
