Your hotmail email is usually the sign in email for messenger.
You won't lose your hotmail address because you change your ISP.

Thanks leroys1000,

My sign in address is my dialup ISP email . The hot mail was created recently. I can sign into windows live. I can't sign into live messenger or My group. They were created using my dialup email address. I only had my PC a few months then and I didn't know much and still don't about computers. I can't get any info from MSN.

Open windows live messenger.
Can you click your name and click sign out from here?
Then try logging in with your new live email?
I don't think you are going to be able to transfer your old account or
groups.
You would need to send update to your contacts about the new user account.
You probably also need to make a list of your groups and join them
with the new login.

Thanks. I am the owner of the group and its private and I chat on line withe the other members on live messenger. Windows live messenger seems to be the only site that you can't change your email address. Thanks for your help. But I don't want to take a chance on losing it yet! I can keep my dialup untill july Its paid till then.
