What Can Cause Error Code 80048821?

There are only two causes of this error code. The Windows Live ID or password was entered incorrectly is the first scenario. A simple typo mistake happens quite often and is the easiest to resolve. In a rush to perform the rote task of signing in, the wrong information was keyed.

The second source of the error code is a security cookie issue stemming from a user initiated password change which does not update the security cookie on the Windows Live server. Old passwords are still being associated with the Windows Live ID and auto-populating into the Windows Live Messenger login page.

What is the Resolution for Error Code 80048821?

If the 80048821 error code is returned during a login, another attempt should be tried to rule out the possibility that the Windows Live ID information was entered incorrectly. Users should reset their passwords using the password reset utility if this attempt fails. The utility has been reported to be unreliable.

A good example would be when the user is still denied access, even after a password reset. The Windows Live Messenger servers still has the user’s old password cached so the new information is not recognized. This issue is the more frequent of the two but it is rarely addressed. Disassociating the registered email address and then adding it back to the Windows Live ID account will sometimes resolve the issue and at worse, exacerbate it still further.

If these solutions fail to fix the error code then users can comb through Microsoft’s massive technical database for answers. Their surplus of technical documentation is over whelming and average users often find Microsoft’s premium technical support service worth its exorbitant price.
