Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

1 Answer

Cannot sign in to MSN explorer

I formatted my computer ( I have XP Home ). At this point I could sign in with all 3 of our accounts. I then did all of the XP updates, including SP3. Now I can't sign in to any of the 3 accounts. I can get on the net with Internet Explorer 7 so I know my connection is good ( cable ). Have any of my settings been changed with the updates? Is there anything else I need to do? I'm sending this with outlook express so that is working too. I little bit of help would be great.

Thanks

If you have formatted your hard drive...... that removes everything off your compuers hard drive. I assume if this is the case, you had to reinstall windows xp. if so, you need to use the connection wizard in your start screen in xp....it will guide you through the internet conection precess. if you have the setup cd from your internet cable provider, you should be able to use it to resore your service in your computer. XP comes with a version of internet explorer. you should be able to update it once you have restored internet access on your computer....hope this addresses your situation

Sign up for the "msn live" option for your email account. This will enable you to access your msn and hotmail username email accounts plus it will give you many more options than you had before
