    You receive the Error “80072efd” if “security.dll” file is missing or corrupted. This does not allow to open the Messenger. You need to re-register the “security.dll” file to solve the problem, by following these steps.

    Click Start >> Run.
    Type “%windir%\system32\regsvr32 softpub.dll” in the box and hit Enter.
    You will receive the message “DllRegisterServer succeeded”.
    Wait until you receive the message.
    Then after receiving the message, open Run and type “%windir%\system32\regsvr32 wintrust.dll” and hit Enter.
    Then, security.dll got re - registered.
    Your problem is solved.
