    Hi, I have 4 PC's running on my LAN, 3 of the PC's I can
    log in to messenger just fine, on the fourth (the one I
    use to access my hotmail where I know the user name and
    password must be OK or hotmail mail wouldn't work) refuses
    to login! this isn't just for me but for any user! I've
    got XP Pro patched to the latest level, I've tried
    uninstalling messenger, upgrading to 6.2 reinstalling 4.7
    but nothing seems to work! Please help it's driving me

    1. The date on your computer needs to be set properly --
    double click the clock verify that
    the time and date are set.

    2. Check your IE Security settings -- open Internet
    Explorer, click the TOOLS menu, then
    INTERNET OPTIONS, then click the ADVANCED tab, scroll to
    the Security section, and verify that "Check for server
    certificate revocation" is UNCHECKED(if it's CHECKED then
    UNCHECK IT). Also verify that 'Use SSL 2.0' and Use SSL
    3.0' are CHECKED(if there UNCHECKED then CHECK them) then
    click OK.

    3. Click Start, then Run, and enter the following:

    regsvr32 softpub.dll

    (don't forget the "SPACE" between regsvr32 and softpub.dll)

    then click OK

    Then try signing into MSN Messenger and the Hotmail
    website again.
