I've found some people in a Messenger discussion group who seem to be having the same problem as you guys.
There was a fix posted that worked for all who had posted with the problem, so it may work for you too:

1. Hit "run" in the start menu
2. Type "regedit"
3. Open "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\MSNMessenger"
4. Delete the folder called MSN Messenger
5. After this MSN Messenger Live will login as normal.

How do I stop the automatic login when I go to gmail. I want it to require the user to enter the user name & password each time.


Pulled from Google's site:

Disabling automatic sign-in
If you're being automatically signed in to your Google Account, you may have enabled either a password-storing feature in your browser, or the Google Accounts option to "Stay signed in." Learn more about stored passwords in Google Chrome,Mozilla Firefox, and Windows Internet Explorer.
Check if the Google Accounts "Stay signed in" option is actually enabled. Visit the Google Accounts homepage and verify if the checkbox below the Sign In button is selected. If it's selected, delete your browser's cookies.
Each time you sign in to your Google Account, make sure the "Stay signed in" option isn't selected.
If the problem persists, you may want to clear your browser's cache and cookies. Please note that while deleting your cookies may resolve the problem, it will also remove your saved settings for sites you've previously visited.

I CAN NOT DELETE GENIO


here's some info:
jac673Level 1 8/16/12
Most of the remove and uninstall directions I found didn't take care of the problem. Most of the removals would only work if you are using Internet Explorer for your browser. I use Google Chrome. My husband finally figured out how to solve the problem. I had uninstalled Genieo under Add/Remove programs but it was still opening as my homepage instead of Google. Click on the Tool in the right-hand corner. Click on Settings. You will see "On Start Up" part way down. Click on "Set Pages." You will see Yahoo Genieo is set as homepage. Move mouse to that so it becomes highlighted. An X will appear to the right. Click on X. Then type the web address for the homepage of your choice in box and click "OK". Genieo will no longer open as your homepage. Hope this helps anyone who was as frustrated as I was. In Internet Explorer, you click on Tools, then click on Internet Options. Under General Tab, delete Genieo and type URL for your homepage, and then click on "Apply" at the bottom and then "OK". Problem solved. clear.cache.gif14

Can,t opem my e-mail page


Which email account ?
If you currently have an e-mail address or you're thinking about getting one, you need to know how to access your account to check your messages.

Open a new browser and go to your e-mail provider's website.
To ensure that you navigate to the proper site, type your e-mail provider's URL (or website address) into the address bar at the top of the page.

Locate the "Mail" icon on the homepage.
Click on that mail icon and you will be directed to the appropriate sign-in page to access your e-mail inbox.

Provide your correct login details.
You will need to type your username/ID and password into the appropriate boxes and click the button that says "Sign In."

Click on the link that says "Inbox."
Once you click on the inbox link, you will have access to all of your messages, both old and new e-mails.

The unread mail is usually in bold, which makes it easier to identify your new messages.
Simply click on the subject of that e-mail to read your message.

Can't log in to msn.com


When you log in to MSN a website powered by Microsoft you also log in to its Hotmail and Messenger programs.


Hotmail is MSN's email program, while Messenger is an instant messaging and networking program.


Because Messenger and Hotmail are connected to MSN, if you have problems logging into one program, you'll likely have issues logging in to all of them.


Register for Account


The first step to logging in to any MSN-powered sites is to have a Windows Live ID.

This includes an email address, which acts as your username, as well as a password.


The email address must end in either "@hotmail.com," "@live.com" or "@msn.com."

Even though these emails use different domain names, all can be accessed by logging in to the Hotmail homepage.


If you try to log in to MSN or any of its partner sites like Hotmail or Messenger using anything but a Windows Live ID, you won't be allowed to access or create a profile and will be prompted to create a Windows Live account.


Incorrect Password


The most likely reason you aren't able to sign in to your MSN accounts is user error.

Entering an incorrect email address or password will return an error message, informing you that either the email address you provided isn't registered with MSN, or that you entered an incorrect password.


MSN and, hence, Hotmail and Messenger passwords are case sensitive, so check your keyboard's settings before retyping your password a second time.


If you don't remember your password but know your Windows Live ID, you can opt to reset your password by answering some security questions pertaining to your account.


Browser Issues


A slow browser can impact your ability to log in to your MSN accounts.

Try deleting your browser's cookies and clearing its cache before attempting to sign in again. This process varies from browser to browser.


For example, in Internet Explorer, click on the gear icon, "Internet Options" and click "Delete" under Browsing History.

Check the "Cookies" box and click "Delete."


Internet Issues


A slow Internet connection can also hinder your login attempts.

Check your Internet connection to make sure you're connected to the Internet.


Also, check that you're working online instead of offline, which can prevent you from logging in.


Click on the "File" tab at the top of your browser, and make sure there's not a check mark next to the words "Work Offline."


If there is, click on the words to uncheck that option and sign in again.

There might be some interference from another browser

Create the menu tab on your homepage right click in the top toolbar you should see a number of toolbar options select the menu tab which will add File Edit View Favorites Tools and Help

Click on the tools at the bottom of the drop down list will be internet options or
click start control panel internet options you will see a home page box To Create Page Tabs type

each adress on its own line (type in MSN.com) or you preferred home page and browser
below that will be change search defaults click on settings you will see all search providers you have if dont need any of them you can disable or remove them.


Hope this helps.

Error 81000314 on Windows Live Messenger It won't let me sign in


I have the same problem. I've had the same problem once before, and I googled and found out that the AVG Web Shield was preventing the msn server to connect to the network. Now I thought that it was the same thing, but now it's different. I disabled the web shield, but I still cannot sign in to the windows live messenger. Technically, I cannot sign into my live.com account, a single mail address, but I was able to sign in to the live.co.uk mail address. How is this possible? :S
