    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

    I cannot sign in to my email. It keeps telling me that my password or address is incorrect. It will also say that my secret answer to the secret question I chose is incorrect. What do I do now? I don't want to loose this e-mail address. I have had it close to 10 years.

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.

It sounds like you are trying to access your old gmail account by signing on where you create a new gmail account.
Instead of signing on that way, see if there is a place on the gmail page to "sign on with a different account", and proceed from there.

Microsoft sighn up is not loading

The MSN homepage is a Microsoft website that allows you to check up on the current news of the day, check your email, sign into your Windows MSN Messenger and much more.
Problems associated with loading your MSN homepage have to do with either your computer or Internet connection, or the connection on the home page.
Downloading and installing other programs may change your homepage.
This happens because certain programs have features such as add-ons and tool bars that may automatically change some of your settings.
Google and Yahoo commonly add features to their programs, and sometimes they will change your homepage.
You can fix this by opening your Web browser and clicking "Tools" and "Options" and changing your homepage to

Your anti-virus program sometimes blocks websites that it deems as dangerous or potentially threatening.
Open your anti-virus program and include on your Firewall's safelist of websites.

Cookies You might have to delete your MSN cookies in order to view the homepage.
Cookies typically store information from the websites you have visited.
You may have too many cookies stored on your computer to view the website properly.
You can do this by clicking "Tools" and "Options" and selecting "Cookies" from the "Privacy" tab.

Internet Browser

Go to your Internet browser and update to the newest version.
Web browsers frequently update the browsers to different versions, and you may be using an outdated version that is causing connection problems with the MSN homepage.

There's three quick things you can try:

1) If possible, roll back or uninstall/reinstall your web browser

2) scan for spyware and viruses - Often, DNS and other server settings can be hijacked by malicious programs

3) clean up your hosts file - This is normally taken care of by 2), but just in case... In WinXP, the host file is typically located at %SystemRoot%\system32\drivers\etc\

I assume you've already tried simple things like restarting your computer and such? Weird problems like this can often be
