    The password you are typing is wrong. May be your CAPS LOCK is on. If you have any firewall software, may be its blocking msn. Check your firewall settings and allow messenger. Restart firewall and try to login.

    You can change your password at, then try signing in again. Clear your internet explorer cache and cookies. Open Internet Explorer =>click the Tools menu =>then Internet Options =>then click the Delete Files button, and after that click the Delete Cookies button.

    Check your IE Security settings. Open Internet Explorer, click the Tools menu, then Internet Options, then Advanced tab, scroll to the Security section, and verify that "Check for server certificate revocation" is unchecked. Also verify that 'Use SSL 2.0' and Use SSL 3.0' is checked, then click OK.
    Also try registering following DLL files. Click Start > Run and copy following in run box by Pressing Enter after each one:
    regsvr32 softpub.dll
    regsvr32 wintrust.dll
    regsvr32 initpki.dll
