  • Hi Will

    For help with Windows Live products, I recommend going to the main Live ID support website and looking at the following page for troubleshooting steps.

    Why can't I sign in?

    If this does not solve the problem, try the Main Live Messenger Support Website.

    Hope this helps

    Thank You for testing Windows 7

  • 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.
