can anyone help??? please...... :sad:

YES YES YES!!!!!!! I had exactly the problems described,, for the last 4 months I had given up EVER getting back on line using the msn browser! I cut and pasted ('regsvr32 softpub.dll' )_ and it worked!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I had had about enough of the mozilla fire fox as it only let me do somethings and not others, I dearly missed my fav's and all!

I can login to hotmail; however, once I get into my email account, I cannot open my emails. I have to refresh each time in order to see the next hotmail message. The type/font also appears larger every other time the email opens (again, until I refresh). Any ideas?

Thank you,

I could not get into my HOTMAIL for days. I tried all of the suggestions at this website, to no avail. I could get to any other site, though.

Finally, I connected my ethernet cable directly to my cable modem, and I could get to HOTMAIL. I reset my router, and everything is back to normal.

Everytime i try to log into MSN it says:
"Signing in to MSN Messenger failed because the service is temporarily unavailable. 80096001"
Hotmail also has problems. When i log in it comes up with "page cannot be displayed".

I'm able to log on to MSN and hotmail on my frends pc, so i know its my pc that has something wrong.

I've tried deleting cookies, checked security options, reinstalled MSN, registered dll. files (regsvr32 softpub.dll) and i know its not my router cos my dads work pc (which is in network) has no problems.

Wat do i do? This is driving me crazy! :sad:

My problem was my routers firewall was filtering cookies, java and activex. After switching that off, it works fine.

Cuddlez, please don't "piggyback" along on other threads. Start a thread of your own.
