Honestly, the best way I found to deal with that problem in my own experience was to uninstall Windows Live messenger and use Meebo. After doing that, I never had a problem with instant messaging ever again.

V-Man has the idea - uninstall and reinstall the application. If it doesn't work - something else is wrong and you may need to take more action such as reinstalling windows, configuring the network, or using an alternative (like meebo, pidgin, trillian, etc)
