That is not the message for being stuck inworld or for account on hold. Could be a firewall issue as you can access the Second Life website but cannot open the application to log inworld. Check your firewall/internet security software and make sure Second Life is an allowed application.

EDIT: Here is a useful link. http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/How_do_I_configure_my_software_firewall_(such_as_Norton_Internet_Security,_McAfee_Personal_Firewall,_or_ZoneAlarm)%3F

and another...http://community.secondlife.com/t5/Technical/Is-my-firewall-responsible-for-problems-with-Second-Life/qaq-p/696359 .Note in particular Lexie's comments below and the section I have highlighted:

Internet Security software also blocks network traffic; however, these programs can cause a great deal of trouble if not configured correctly. The most popular versions of internet security software contain additional features (Internet Worm Protection on Norton Personal Firewall/Norton Internet Security, Intrusion Detection Service for McAfee Personal Firewall, and SmartDefense on ZoneAlarm) that analyze internet programs and their network traffic. Based on an undetermined set of factors, including the patterns of network data, the internet security program may decide to block even a trusted program. These programs may also block a trusted program if its executable changes (which happens every time a new version of the Second Life software is released). Depending on how this internet security software is configured, it may continue to list Second Life as a "trusted program" while blocking it due to these features.

Thanks for the answers. I understand that, due to Anti Virus or Firewall, these problems can occur. However, I completely switched off my anti virus and at one time even uninstalled the anti virus software. Although, with the same anti virus setting I was able to login before this incident. So even anti virus in not the case.

 

Now the only thing remained to check is that whether my ISP is blocking certain ports. Can anyone tell me that what are the most widely used ports for SL? Thanks for your support and answers.
