I'm new to this forum so I hope I've put this in the right place ;)
Let me explain the situation....
The problem is with my girlfriend's PC, not mine.
She runs MSN Explorer as her Browser and Messenger as her Web Chat (As do I).
The problem was brought to my attention last night (21th Jan 2006) when I logged on to this PC wanting to check my emails etc....
Basically, I couldn't do anything with Explorer. Tried logging on a number of times with both my girlfriend's and myself's username and password, but nothing. Then I tried to log on to MSN Messenger, but an error message (80048883) saying that the service was temporarily unavailable, so I left it an hour or so. Tried again and still nothing, so I checked the service status and all was running fine.
Then I loaded IE to check my emails going through that, but got "Cannot connect", also got this message to some other secure sites, ie. Internet Banking.
I've downloaded Firefox (The Browser I use at home) and the web access seems fine now, but it's Messenger....I can't get on to that.... :(
What can I do? I would be sincerely thnkful to whoever is able to provide assistance to this matter.
