If using XP Microsoft occasionally open a new user Account on your computer which can cause the same problem

Try starting in safe mode and sign in as the administrator if it gives you the option.See if you can fix it from there.

[Something has added ASP.NET as a password protected User Account to my computer during the past few days.]
ASP Net is the one Microsoft adds so if you did not use a password before you need one now as it will not let you sign in.
Maybe that is not your problem but thought that I would mention it just in case.

just really strange. If you put your password in on outlook and messenger should never have to change it again. why would it then come up as invalid

Oops sorry I thought you were having problems logging on due to password request.
it will learn me to read the post properly in future.
Not sure about the others.
I use Windows Live Messenger and used to have to sign in all of the time.
But since I ticked remember my ID and password I have had no problems.
I also have Windows Live mail which I had password problems with and it was not until I closed W/L/mail without signing out that's when the the problem stopped.
It is not ideal I don't like leaving it open but It took me elsewhere every time to sign in before I could use it.
Now when I open W/messenger and click on the e-mail it opens straight away.
