Yes, im back again with the exact same problem as earlier, ive been to just about every site and no one seems to know what the problem is. Im having problems with my Windows Live Messenger, it doesnt seem to want to sign in. Its been "Signing In" for almost an hour now, never connects. I dont get any errors unless, i try to log onto MSN Web Messenger while trying to sign into Live at the same time. Ive done just about everything, Repaired it, Reinstalled it and nothing helps.

Heres a pic. to see what it looks like, its been this way all day, and ive let it "sign in" for hours and it just doesnt work, weird thing is, is that it was working fine last night.

someone said it could be my internet connection, but idk i was thinking maybe malware related. thanks in advance =\

Do you have a firewall active? If you have a firewall , maybe its causing interference with the connection.

Disable anything with Norton for the time to see if they are blocking your connection to your instant messenger.

Ok I never used Windows Live or anything in that nature but Im gonna take a guess at this point.

Try to make a new name for the time being and see if you can log-in.

Maybe there servers are down. How long has this been happening

Try making a new name to see if its just your current hotmail name.
