Problem description: When I try to log in to MSN Messenger or Windows Live Messenger, it tells me my password is incorrect when it is not (I have changed it several times and verified I am typing it correctly)
Error code/error message:
"Sorry, we could not sign you in due to one or more of the following:
- the sign-in name does not exist
- the password is incorrect
- the Passport service is temporarily unavailable
If you have forgotten your password, please click Help in the main Messenger window, and then click Help Topics for instructions on resetting your password."
What has been tried so far: Updating to 7.5, updating to 8.5, uninstalling EVERYTHING including Windows Messenger from “Add and Remove Windows Features” and trying again from scratch, repeatedly changing my password.
Messenger version: 5.0, 7.5, 8.5
Windows version: Microsoft Windows XP
