MSN messenger blocked by firewall?

See if you guys might know whats going on...just formatted and reinstalled XP, now messenger live will not connect. Comes up with a error saying that the firewall is blocking it. I can turn off windows firewall and it still says the same thing.

Any ideas?? Does it need a dedicated port? Going through a standard router.

Try opening the ports for it through your router.
edit* Also do you have any other firewall program or antivirus?
