Default Bah! Live account?!

Okay, Microsoft has really been f#$%ing me up the *** lately, and it's getting on my nerves...

I cannot sign into Live Messenger/MSN Messenger/Windows Messenger/Web Messenger of any kind! I can sign into other peoples accounts on my computer, but I cannot sign into mine... I can't sign into my account on any other person's computer either...

I went into the Windows Live ID site and changed the password, but still nothing works...

IMPORTANT POINT:
I signed up for Xbox 360 Live yesterday with this passport.

I keep getting this error on Windows Live Messenger... 81000316

do you have ie 6 or 7 ?
i think resetting your passwords might work

in 6 try this ,,,, Tools -> Internet Options -> Content -> AutoComplete... -> Clear passwords.



in 7 try , click start , then run
type in
inetcpl.cpl
hit enter
click delete under browser history
then click delete passwords, heck while you are there delete the rest too.

close then open ie 6 or 7

It happened no matter what computer I was using. While other accounts worked.

I fixed it, but the only way was to change my Windows Live ID (basically resetting all my info), which means that whatever was wrong was Microsoft's screw-up.
