MSN Sign-in Failure

A friend who has just activated an MSN account is finding it impossible to sign in. The sign-in window in Win XP is remembering the password but her attempts to sign in have failed repeatedly. Entering the password manually has no effect.

Has anybody got any tips, cures or useful website suggestions that would throw some light on the cause? All input received with thanks.

It all seems fine at present.

Control panel, user accounts, user, manage my network accounts, stored user names and passwords, highlight name, click properties and you should be able to edit etc.

Thanks for the link; I'll keep that for future reference. Unfortunately, this problem has been going on for a few weeks now, with no change, so it's probably not a temporary glitch.

Thanks for the tip. What should I be looking for in the properties - anything specific? The password has been re-entered a few times with no success.

if an error message comes up "mess' has encountered a problem...(code here)" type it here so i can tell ya the problem

There's no message that I am aware of, just a failure to sign in. By "mess" do you mean Messenger? The sign-in problem is with MSN Explorer. My friend hasn't tried to use MSN Messenger seperately as far as I know. I'll ask her to try Messenger and see if the problem still occurs.

Sorry but you need to log in first, which you cant do, so my advice was a no no.

Maybe something is up with the account, all I can advice is why doesn`t she try to open the account again with the same name or open another one with a similar name.

That's OK - I discovered that when tried on my own PC and couldn't find MSN listed. Your suggestion to re-open the account with the same details is a good bet, I think. I'll let you know.

Have attempted the above suggestion, but couldn't work out how it's done. "Running Windows XP" doesn't mention much about MSN Explorer.

This thread is still open for now, folks.
