O.P. Undecided  My account has been locked
I just tried to sign in to MSN Messenger for the second time today, and it came up with the following message:

-----
We could not sign you into MSN Messenger because there is a problem with your passport.

Click OK to learn more at the Microsoft Passport Web Site. 81000303
-----

I tried to follow all of the instructions, and it comes up with a 404, telling me the site is no longer there...

The only thing that I know could've happened is that somebody has accessed it without my permission and not know my password. Somebody spoke to me today about an article I wrote about their hosting company, and they wrote my email address in the conversation. I asked them what they did it for, and they said, "you'll see", I'm thinking that this is who did this.

Does anybody know of a way I can access my MSN Messenger, as I will need those contacts if I want to talk to them still :'(.

It was somebody using a program to keep my out of my MSN Messenger, that's what the person told me... He has closed it now though, so it is all okay...

Weird.

So did some random person that you were talking to on MSN say that they could lock you out of MSN so you couldn't log in and it worked? I wonder how they did that...

This was done to me by cleanfilm when me and leejeffery where owning him when he said he would hack the forums, all they person does is uses a program that constantly trys to log on to your hotmail account using a random password so it locks you out, of course if your not a newb you could do this yourself. Hotmail will lock the account after a certain amount of attempts to prevent your password being bruteforced

Sean did this to me right before he got perm banned from here.  He thought he was top shit for being able to do it.  Its actually quiet dodgy...

Yeah, that bastard, made a 'plugin' and posted it on msgdiscovery forums, it contained a virus.
