    Check your computer for keyloggers. Or, don't use a library computer to
    access your MSN account (unless you can check it for keyloggers). Clean up
    anything you find, pick a strong password (11 characters minimum, random
    combination of alpha, numeric, and (if allowed) symbols. Nothing that is
    easy to guess, or will fall to a dictionary attack. There isn't much else
    that you can do. I didn't include "don't share your login with buddies",
    assuming that you don't, by nature.

    One additional thing for you is this. If you use someone else's computer, don't
    set it to remember your password. Otherwise, all they have to do is log in with
    your account. I mention this, becuase I was at a friend's house, when her
    daughter's friend ran into this. Someone was signing in on his account, and
    saying things to his girlfriend. He wasn't even near the computer at the time.
