    New Macbook Pro owner
    Been using PCs for years

    Along with this I have a 10 year old MSN Messenger account
    I see Mac for Messenger automatically came with the Mac or Leopard.

    In any event I have, over the past 3 days, tried signing into to my MSN Messenger numerous times and each time am told my password or user name is incorrect althogh I have double checked and triple checked many times.
    So it wont let me on BUT I can sign into Windows Live using the same password.ID info.

    I have taken down my firewall, put it back up, thinking maybe that was the problem to no avail.

    I have even changed my password twice waiting up to 24 hours to try again and just now for the 5th day in a row it tells me it is wrong when it ISNT

    Can someone advise me as to the next step for I really do need to get online with it now after being off for several days with this.

    I just checked yet again and see now that I still cannot log on but can on the web in Windows Live alhtough I sign out of that so it wont interfere.

    I AM STUMPED and no longer know what to do next short of just getting a whole new identity but I have used this for 10 years with no problem up until now so a name/password change but I would rather not have to get a new one but just want to be able to log on to Mac Messenger ASAP.
