View Full Version : Stupid msngr...

I just installed ms msngr 5 on my friends comp and whenever he goes to check his email (from inside msngr) it opens ie but then asks him to put his p/w in again. He does this and clicks ok, and it goes back to the same page asking him to put his p/w in again. The p/w is correct coz he used the same p/w to log into msngr....there is no error when this happens, just asks him to put his p/w in again. Cant work it out.....any1 got any ideas?

Maybe it wants to know his password. :D

Probably one of the "save password" options (in one of the programmes involved) is wrong.

Yup, Just tell your friend to hit the Sign Out button when finished with hotmail, that should fix it.

Does for me :D

Yea...i know :P.....the save p/w box in msngr is unchecked bcoz it's a shared comp....

But thats the thing....he cant sign in...even if he doesnt use msngr, coz it just does the same thing :(

When your friend clicks on the "1 New Email" or whatever, it'll come up saying:
You're signed in as UserXX@hotmail.com, do you wanna:
Remain signed in as UserXX@hotmail.com
Sign out and sign in as UserXX@hotmail.com

Hit sign out and then it should get you in :-)
