What Causes 80048821?

There are two possible scenarios that will return this error and both are preventable. The first is that the Windows Live ID or password was entered incorrectly. An example that happens quite commonly is the simple typo. In the user’s haste the wrong information was keyed.

The second reason, also preventable, is that the user has changed their logins but the security cookie has not updated. Essentially, old information is still associated with the Windows Live ID and auto-populating into the Windows Live Messenger sign-in page.

What is the Solution for 80048821?

If the 80048821 error is encountered, a second attempt should be made to rule out the possibility that the Windows Live ID or password was mistyped. If this fails, then users can reset their passwords using the Windows Live password reset utility. The utility is not predominately displayed as an option nor is it always successful which compounds an already frustrating user experience.

 

An example would be when the password is reset but the user is still denied access. The Windows Live Messenger sign-in window most likely still has the user’s old password cached. This is a common occurrence but rarely addressed. Disassociating the user’s email address from the Windows Live ID is the fix for that. Deleting the email address and then adding it back should be the final fix.

If the solutions above fail to satisfactorily resolve the 80048821 error then users can fall back on Microsoft’s technical support forums. Their inventory of technical specifications, error codes, tricks and fixes are so vast that the average user can quickly find themselves over whelmed to the point that paying for Microsoft’s premium technical support seems like the only viable option.
