  • Go to Control Panel > User Accounts. 
    Manage Users Accounts > Advanced Tab
    Manage Password.
    Remove all of the passwords in the list.
    Shut down MSN Massanger and start it back up.
    You should be able to login now.

    Found this on Vista Forum [ http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/itprovistaapps/thread/ecd06db5-8c31-4ec5-b9e8-9435ac5a3607 ] - Try the above on Win 7. It should work.

  • I have the same problem as you Cezar but the solution that you suggest Ananda does not stick up.
    since the routing you are suggesting is incorrect.
    I've looked around in the menus and tried to find a list of password, which is kinda funny cause I only have one user account on my computer ;P
    But anyhow I removed the admin/logon, shut down MSN Messenger and restarted it, but it still won't work.

    ANy suggestions o what else to do or what I might have missed?
