Well, no one can know your MSN password except the 2 guys. One is from Microsoft, while the other is from your computer. The fact is if you really can't remember any hints and don't want to bother the Microsoft guys, then probably you should take a try of this MSN Messenger Password Recovery tool. It should take your stress out. Just install on your computer (the one you used to login in your MSN account) and it will find it back. Regards.

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.

Can't sign in to msn account,says ID and PW not valid . i put in secret question and answer and it locked me out altogether. so an answer sent to my email won't help me either. help! Is there a phone # i...


Hi, Normally if your account gets blocked, you are still able to do the log in process, only that you will be asked to Type in and Match some Security characters before you can then sign in. And if it is that you have forgotten your password, you can use the 'Forgot Password' feature, which should work.
You can use this link for further help: http://help.live.com/help.aspx?mkt=en-GB&project=liveidv1&productkey=wlaccounts
Worst case Scenario is if you have done all this process and used your Secret questions and answers and it still refused you access, then it is either you do not own the account really (double-check your username), or someone has Hijacked your account and changed all the security settings.

First make sure the Internet is working.
If it is then try to login with the same username and password on www.hotmail.com if you can log in then it's a problem with outlook express if you cant then that is the problem.
To make sure outlook express is correct click on Tools, Accounts then click on Mail tab and then click on your email address and select properties make sure the username and password are correct or retype them.

My friend was fixing my pc and was able to view my msn password. I think he saw it in my temp internet file, but I am not sure. where elese would info like that be stored, and if it was in my temp file how...


usually all msn messenger files are located at

C:\Documents and Settings\< your PC username>\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Messenger\<your messenger username>

saved passwords are encrypted so in order for him to have gotten your password he would have had to use a decrypting program

If you have any reason to believe he knows your password I would change it as soon as you can.

You have 2 options here:

1. If you supplied an alternate email address, select that instead of providing answers to questions on the forgot your password link. This will email a password reset email to that email address.

2. Contact MSN and see what you guys can do. They will have you verify information. Go to this link:

to report a problem.
