    Hi,

    When you try to sign in to MSN Messenger, you may receive the following error message:

    • We were unable to sign you in to MSN Messenger, possibly because of a problem with the service or with your Internet connection. Please make sure that you are connected to the Internet.

    Try the following to help resolve the situation:

    1. Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
    2. Make sure you have installed the latest version of MSN Messenger.
    3. Make sure you have installed the latest available updates for your operating system. For Microsoft® Windows® operating systems, go to the Microsoft® Windows® Update website.

    Hi,

     

    You might want to try this if you are on Vista

  • I've been having this exact same problem for months now. It's was frustrating!! At first I thought, "I'll try again later." Or maybe it has something to do with Vista. I've tried EVERYTHING I've seen online but nothing worked. I've tried tons of times since it started and strange enough it's let me sign in ONCE. Just once. But I think I've found a solution.

    Go to the Control Panel and find Uninstall a Program (under "Programs") [for Vista users...but for XP users, just go into My Computer]. Find "Windows Live ID Sign-In Assistant " and go Uninstall.

    I just uninstalled Windows Live ID Sign-In Assistant . I'm able to sign in now. Hopefully this will be the end of it. I hope this helped you.
