Despite what the media wants you to believe, you definitely do not need a
passport account to use Windows XP.

You do not need a Passport account to use XP.  The things you will need a
Passport/Hotmail account for are the same in XP as they are in any version
of Windows.  If you use Windows/MSN Messenger then you will need an account
(which you should already have if you are already using Messenger).

When you first load XP, it will ask you for your Passport or to create a new
one.  You do not need to do this to use any of the features of XP (unless
you count Messenger as an XP feature).

1. IE vulnerabilities exposing MS passport details?

Win XP Pro SP1 with all critical updates from Windows Update applied
Messenger 4.7

Son has non-priv/standard account.

Son couldn't log onto Messenger. Went to reset, but it was obvious that
someone else had changed his password, secret question and secret answer.

What are the known exploits for 'stealing' passport details. I found some
references on the web relating to an 'old' exploit which entailed reading a
'crafted' e-mail within 15 minutes of logging onto a passport site. Is this
exploit still open under XP, or is there a new exploit?

2. CDROM

3. Hotmail - .Net Passport enable cookie error

4. can't delete messages

5. net passport

6. Netscape 1.2beta and graphics bugs

7. Passport wants cookies enabled - can't

8. Server Hangup

9. passport sign in lookalike

10. Problems with passport sites

11. unable to log onto Passport

12. How do I clear the list of email addresses in .NET Passport?

13. Passport account no longer works under ME
