MSN messenger keeps signing me out!

I have a problem with messenger. It signs me in then after about 1 min it signs be back out again, other times it won't let me sign in at all saying "you are behind a firewall that does not accept" or something along those lines! I don't know what to do! My son has just got his GCSE results so he wants to chat to all his mates and tell them but it won't let him! Is this a virus or just messenger playing up?

Sounds a bit like the problem I am having on my Dad's machine.(posted about 5 minutes ago under Blaster worm)

Would be surprised if it was a virus as this would've affected other things. Their could be a problem with Messenger generally - try clicking Help and it will take you to a status page. Have noticed an increase in the drop outs over the last week or so.
