Can't Sign in to Windows Live Mail

Hi,

I have this problem well over 8 months and its getting me crazy for real.
I just can't find the right fix for this tried everything what I could find on the net and nothing works.

The download agent seems to work fine installing the Live suite of programs on my Vista-64 system. I can use Messenger without any problems, and can get to my hotmail account through Internet Explorer/firefox/chrome just fine.

However when I go to use the Live Mail application and want to sign in (shows in the upper right corner).
When i click Sign In (upper right) and then Sign in.
I get a red text pop-up in the sign in box.

''Sorry, we were unable to sign you in to Windows Live ID at this time. Please try again later''

And i am getting this pop-up al over 8 months.
Just like i said i have tried every solution that i could find on the internet and nothing has solved this problem for me.

I hope someone can help me out with this. I have thinking about formatting my system but because of the many programs i have installed on this machine i just don't see this as a option formatting my system for just only windows live mail.

I have tried many forums to get help from but again not the right solution for this problem that i have.
Many others had again the same pop-up and they where able to fix it with some kind of solution like flushing the DNS but it hasn't work for me.

I have Vista Home Premium x64, 4GB of RAM, AMD Turion-X2, 500GB HD system.
I am running eset smart security if that matters

thanks

The sign in is not required for sending and receiving from email accounts.
You do say if the email accounts are working in WLMail.
The sign in is for Live services (Contacts and Calendar).

What version are you using?

Clicking the sign in on the upper right corner will log you in with an
existing Live ID to Live services.

To add an existing account to WLMail, Alt + T, Accounts, Add, Mail, ......

If you want to create a new Live ID, go signup.live.com .
