When your friends get notes that you are stranded in Lagos and need money - chances are your account has been hijacked

It can also happen if you've installed an update that checks for "Genuine Windows software". Happened to my sis very recently.

Yes this can happen, also did you change any network settings in PC or Browser? Installed new version of browser?

I feel it could be the firewall blocking the messenger. Try disabling the firewall (Windows or 3rd party) and check if that has fixed the issue.

Windows XP/Vista.. Boot into safe mode with networking. Press F8 during boot to access Advanced Boot Menu. Select "Safe mode with Networking" and let the computer boot. Log into your Windows profile and check if the internet works fine here in this mode. If it works fine in safe mode with networking, i am sure its the firewall.

That's probably because the laptop has a genuine OS and your desktop doesn't!

True. I guess it's a recent step from Microsoft to curb piracy
