Check the Msn is it a fake one.
Or sometimes, the msn service is just testing in some area while you can't sign in.
Try to donwload the latest version of msn, it will work.

Naruto28 > try asking your friend to upgrade to the lasted version of MSN messenger if she does not what to use the lasted version of MSN you should be able to google for MSN 7.5

Also get your friend to run Ad-aware & Spybot Search and Destroy see: http://pressf1.co.nz/faq.php?faq=pressf1_faqs_security#faq_pressf1_faq_ 16 for more info

Also ask your friend if she is running an anti-virus program?

And once last thing when was the last time she sign in to hotmail?

Perhaps her computer's firewall is being naughty? If I am not mistaken, MSN Messenger tunnels through port 1860, right?

Cheers :)

She has JUST made the account and i made it FOR her. She just cant sign in, but I CAN. So i no that its not the accounts problem.

Thnx, Everybody, my friend was able to sign in after all. She disabled Firewall and it worked. But I still dont get it. I got exactly the same Firewall as her and how come I can sign in without disabling it?

Ditch McAfee Firewall, go for either SPF or ZA or Kerio etc.

Cheers :)
