Entering Hotmail via MSN doesn't work anymore.

    a few days ago, I did a format C and re-installed all software (Windows
    XP Home Ed., etcetera).
    Before my format C, I could go to my hotmail-account with MSN Messenger
    by right-clicking on the green MSN-logo (at the bottom next to my
    clock) and then on 'My POST IN'.
    Then I was signed in in my hotmail-account automatically.

    Now, that doesn't work anymore.
    I always have to enter my hotmail-address and my password before I can
    enter my Hotmail-account.

    Does anybody know where I can change the settings, so I can enter my
    hotmail account automatically without the login-procedure?

  2. Did you associate your Hotmail account with your XP user account? To check,
    click Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> User Accounts. Click on your
    user name. At the bottom of the list of options, you should see one related
    to your .NET Passport. If it says "Change my .NET Passport", you have one
    installed. Otherwise, plug in your username and password.
