    Hi thanks for reply i can get onto msn home page without using the sign in function when you select internet explorer from start men.

    If i use start menu then select int exp it asks for password witch i have it saved automatically so i dont need to type pass in every time i select ok then it goes upto 5 attempts to sign in then stops.

    So if i select the e explorer icon next to start menu button it will load up the msn homepage but wont let me sign in i get error message

    "page cannot be displayed or dns error"

    Ive restored all defaults and excepetd all cookies turned firewall off but still cant sign in.

    I even try opening account with yahoo but when i select sign up i get the same message.

    Also where can i select chooses msn as my homepage would that be on the homepage or not really strugling now and dont know what else i can do thanks for reply

When you go to msn dont try to sign in look for the icon that says choose msn as your home page and down load the information then you can sign in. some internet companies block out certain web sites.

    to sign up for msn to be home page it should be on the home page upper right hand corner above the blue margine its just written out its hard to see sometimes but its there, I know that sometimes it can be a real bear to get these things to work I have just lost my xp pro program to a virus it wiped my drive and i had to install my oem xp home to get back in business and the new old program had never been used so it was a real pain to get all my info going again. took me two days. do you have a local domain that you dial up on. this could be the problem.

    sometimes your problem will be with your ISP provider have them check there server it might be blocked there. the server at msn is not accepting your domain name. there might be a problem in the translation from your ISP server.

Why can't I access my msn homepage?

I think access to the MSN Homepage is going to have to wait until Microsoft corrects the issue. I was able to access my Outlook/Hotmail/Live account by using my Chrome app in Win 7 by simply typing in Outlook Hotmail and following the link that appears and the email applications were working perfectly. I can only guess that someone crashed MSN with the idea that this is funny.....OR it could very well be related to a military attempt/experiment to see if they are capable of taking out current safety/security which is in place.

Can't log in to

When you log in to MSN a website powered by Microsoft you also log in to its Hotmail and Messenger programs.

Hotmail is MSN's email program, while Messenger is an instant messaging and networking program.

Because Messenger and Hotmail are connected to MSN, if you have problems logging into one program, you'll likely have issues logging in to all of them.

Register for Account

The first step to logging in to any MSN-powered sites is to have a Windows Live ID.

This includes an email address, which acts as your username, as well as a password.

The email address must end in either "," "" or ""

Even though these emails use different domain names, all can be accessed by logging in to the Hotmail homepage.

If you try to log in to MSN or any of its partner sites like Hotmail or Messenger using anything but a Windows Live ID, you won't be allowed to access or create a profile and will be prompted to create a Windows Live account.

Incorrect Password

The most likely reason you aren't able to sign in to your MSN accounts is user error.

Entering an incorrect email address or password will return an error message, informing you that either the email address you provided isn't registered with MSN, or that you entered an incorrect password.

MSN and, hence, Hotmail and Messenger passwords are case sensitive, so check your keyboard's settings before retyping your password a second time.

If you don't remember your password but know your Windows Live ID, you can opt to reset your password by answering some security questions pertaining to your account.

Browser Issues

A slow browser can impact your ability to log in to your MSN accounts.

Try deleting your browser's cookies and clearing its cache before attempting to sign in again. This process varies from browser to browser.

For example, in Internet Explorer, click on the gear icon, "Internet Options" and click "Delete" under Browsing History.

Check the "Cookies" box and click "Delete."

Internet Issues

A slow Internet connection can also hinder your login attempts.

Check your Internet connection to make sure you're connected to the Internet.

Also, check that you're working online instead of offline, which can prevent you from logging in.

Click on the "File" tab at the top of your browser, and make sure there's not a check mark next to the words "Work Offline."

If there is, click on the words to uncheck that option and sign in again.

There might be some interference from another browser

Create the menu tab on your homepage right click in the top toolbar you should see a number of toolbar options select the menu tab which will add File Edit View Favorites Tools and Help

Click on the tools at the bottom of the drop down list will be internet options or
click start control panel internet options you will see a home page box To Create Page Tabs type

each adress on its own line (type in or you preferred home page and browser
below that will be change search defaults click on settings you will see all search providers you have if dont need any of them you can disable or remove them.

Hope this helps.

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

- It seems like somebody has hacked into your hotmail account and changed your password so you are unable to sign in.
- If messenger is tellling you: WRONG USER NAME OR PASSWORD it is that. - Otherwise try uninstalling and reinstalling msn messenger and see how it goes. - A good way to check if the password is WRONG (therefore changed) is go to and insider there put in your email and password (the ones you think are the good ones and see if it is telling you that the password is incorrect.

Failing to sign in is another thing. To check if it is a problem at your home on your computer use and try sign in there. If you are able to sign in then the reinstall of msn messenger should solve your problem.

One last thing if you installed a firewall make sure that msn messenger is added as an exception in the allow programs as you will keep encountering this problem.
