Problems logging on website

I wasn't having any problems logging onto until about 2 weeks ago. All the sudden my browser now says "page cannot be displayed". I've tried uninstalling the browser, turning off the firewall, antivirus, running spyware programs etc. I even changed my internet provider and that still didn't solve the problem. Any suggestions?

Re: problems logging on website

This is most likely a problem with the system Winsock2 settings; the settings are often corrupted by malware programs that are installed without your knowledge... You can read more about the problem, and how to resolve it, here:

Be sure to read the documentation here:

Good luck; keep us posted on your progress...

Why do i continue to lose my connection to the server when playing a game?

LAN Connection Issues and Port Settings LAN-based matches between players on your internal home network are not routed through the Internet or servers. Disconnections from LAN matches are attributed to faulty internal wiring or router settings. Log in to your router's administration page via a Web browser and ensure ports 6112 through 6119 TCP are open for traffic flow. If this does not work, check your network wiring and ensure it's properly seated in the computer's and router's Ethernet ports. Corrupt Server List and Virus Attack If you have recently downloaded any maps or connected to privately hosted servers, it's possible you picked up a virus that altered your server file list and is directly causing connection issues. Scan your computer for viruses, using an updated virus definition database. b> Multiple IP Connections b> If you and a friend share a single license or key, disconnects occur if you attempt logging in while the other is playing or vice versa. Key sharing is against the Terms of Use and can lead to an IP ban or restriction. Ensure no one else has access to your CD key or tries to access the game while you are playing to avoid multiple IP disconnects. b> High Latency Disconnects Internet connections with latency over 500 ms can cause disconnects while playing in heavily populated online matches. Alleviate this issue by closing all connection-intensive programs running on your computer. Reconnect to the .net servers with only running on your computer. If you continue experiencing disconnects, visit and determine whether your latency is above 500 ms. If so, contact your Internet provider for further troubleshooting. Internet crashing b> If your Internet Explorer keeps randomly crashing (closing by itself), there may be an add-on or temporary page disrupting the connection. Every time you browse the web, Internet Explorer keeps track of the websites you visit. It keeps these pages, along with cookie trackers, in the "Temporary Browsing History" folder. Some websites cause Internet Explorer to crash.

Open the Internet Explorer browser. Go to "Tools > Delete Browsing History." Hit "Delete All." Check off the box that says "Also delete files and settings stored by add-ons." Hit "OK." Close and reopen the browser. b> Disable Add-Ons b> Go to "Start > Search." Type "Internet Explorer" and hit "Enter." The computer will search for any files with this label. Double-click on the file that says "Internet Explorer (No Add-Ons)." This will allow you to browse in IE without any additional plug-ins or add-ons that might be causing the browser to crash. b> Reset Internet Explorer b> Open the IE browser. Go to "Tools > Internet Options." Hit "Advanced." Click on "Reset" and then hit "Enter." Close and reopen the browser. Hope this helps. b>

I can't stay Logged in when I close Chrome.

It seems that many users have been having this problem lately, and it seems that while it works well with Firefox and probably other Gecko-based browsers like Flock or Camino, people using Safari and maybe other WebKit-based browsers like Chrome can't stay signed in for more than a couple of minutes even if you've selected 'Remember Me' in the login page. Multiply staff is aware and working on it but so far there is no cure. I had this problem this week and it was driving me mad, but I found a workaround: Reset your browser: clear its cache and cookies (at least the ones from Multiply). Next time you sing in do not check the 'Remember Me' checkbox. It will let you stay logged in until you close your browser, logout manually or after a very long time (not sure about how long tho). While it's not a fix, it's better than having to sign in again every couple of minutes or becoming insane... If you have this problem, please report the issue in this thread started by the Multiply staff, giving them the info requested in the opening post (your browser, OS, etc):

When I log onto AOL before the home page I get a pop up saying CREATIVE SYNC IS NOT WORKING WINDOWS WILL FIND A SOLUTION when I click OK nothing happens the pop up goes away until the next time I log on....

what browser are you using? did you install any addon to the browser or a software that syncs your information?
if not then then try other browsers to see if the same result will appear since this could idicate an error from the browser which i assume is the default internet explorer.
list of web browsers to try are: opera, firefox, safari, maxtor, chrome just to name a few. download from the web and try any. should the problem persist which i doubt if you try a different browser then scan for registry errors.
good luck

IE6 Crashes when loading Gmail! Help!

It might be that Google are blocking IE6- they got hacked recently and it was apparently traced to people using IE6 in Google that were hacked through one or several security holes of the many in IE6.

If upgrading isn't an option, how about a different browser?  There's lots of free ones to choose from, and there's no rule that says you can't run as many browsers as you like.  Opera (my personal choice); Firefox; Chrome.  There's lots.

Encountering this problem following your first restart after installing Privoxy (which requires changing G-Chrome's proxy settings).
If, after installing Privoxy, you elected not to have it load on system startup, manually re-loaded Privoxy. Simply reconfigure Privoxy to load on startup and the problem should be corrected.
