My account does not work with .NET Passport

The .NET Passport feature enables you to integrate your user account with Internet sites in a safe way. Essentially, the .NET Passport allows you to sign into various Web sites that support .NET Passport with a single user name and password. The idea is to make Web usage easier and uniform with your user account. By default, accounts are not configured for .NET Passport support, but you can easily configure your account.

To configure your account for .NET Passport support, follow these steps:

1. Click Start--> Control Panel--> User Accounts.

2. In the User Accounts window--> click the Change an Account option.

3. If there is more than one user account on your computer--> a window appears that allows you to click the account you want to configure--> Click the desired account.

Prevention:

This window only appears if you are logged on with the computer administrator account. Additionally, you cannot enable someone else’s account for .NET Passport support unless you are logged on with the computer administrator account.

4. Click the Set Up My Account to Use a .NET Passport option.

5. The .NET Passport Wizard appears. In the first screen--> click Next. An Internet connection will be launched if you are not connected already.

6. In the Do You Have an E-mail Address screen--> you can choose to use your existing e-mail address or create a new one for free at MSN.com. Make a selection--> and then click Next.

7. Depending on your selection--> you will need to enter your e-mail address or sign up for a free e-mail address.
