This is more than likely a problem with the RAM. The concept is: each program uses a certain amount. When you reach the limit of what your computer has installed, the computer freezes and refuses to start programs. The way you can fix this is to install more RAM.

I would suggest buying some on www.newegg.com
You can either install it yourself, or you can take it to a computer repair shop and have them do it for you.

Also, you can comment on my page and i will provide step-by-step instructions.

Hope this helps!

Be Careful of this dern WinXPAntivirus and Antivirus 2008 claiming you have "stuff" that needs removing NOW for $XX.XX
There is always a FREE one that does the job correctly.

Download Spybot Search and Destroy.

Install and UPDATE SpyBot. Custom install it and do no put in "TeaTimer" unless you want to watch your registry like a hawk. Boot into safe mode by clicking <Start> <Run>, Type "msconfig" and hit enter.

Go to the Boot tab and check Boot in Safe Mode. When you click OK it will as to restart. (You have to turn it off the same way or it will keep rebooting into safe mode)

Restart and when in safe mode Start SpyBot and immunize your system. Then run a complete scan removing everything it finds.
This is only 1 of 5 possible steps to clean your system out.

Other programs to consider
AdAware - Free Version for adware, grayware, malware, spyware
Clean up! - Says what it does
Avast! - Free Antivirus
I also recommend Googling "housecall" as Trend Micro is very up to date but hard to get a java shell or browser scanner to work correctly with system failure eminent.

Most times I can remotely fix it for a nominal charge.

I have Internet Explorer, optimized for Bing and MSN, but my Facebook page will only show on post, and freezes up, says Bing and MSN not responding?


You may have a virus, malware, adware, a browser hijacker, or pups (potentially unwanted programs).



A. If your computer will boot and you can operate it ok...

Download and install Malwarebytes and Superantispyware (Note: If you can\'t do the download on your machine, do it on a friend\'s, put them on a thumb drive, and install them from it). Then scan your computer with each program, and quarantine anything found.



B. If your computer won\'t boot, or can\'t operate properly after boot...

Tap F8 when you are booting, select "Safe Mode With Networking". Download and install Malwarebytes and Superantispyware (Note: If you can\'t do the download on your machine, do it on a friend\'s, put them on a thumb drive, and install them from it). Then scan your computer with each program, and quarantine anything found.



C. If this process finds malware, to keep stuff like that from coming back, I recommend you get the paid version of Malwarebytes.


Good luck.

Good luck.

Can't log in to msn.com


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 "@hotmail.com," "@live.com" or "@msn.com."

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 MSN.com) 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.

Hotmail I want to get rid of hotmail.com & return to msn. com as my email address. How do I do that????? Thank you


They used to have an account with MSN.com. Now it's all integrated into one so MSN.com uses your hotmail or live.com or .ca for your email. So if you're trying to get rid of your account you can't because it will still ask you for your hotmail or live ID.

I beleive that hotmail or msn e-mail is not compatible with Outlook. You will have to use "Windows Live Mail" to access your msn or hotmail accounts.

Msn hotmail "error cannot access at this time" (home page hotmail)


this sound more like a temporary issue that msn is having. But if this problem has be for more then 24 hours contact MSN let them know how long this has been going on they will most likely try and trouble shoot it then they will transfer you to tier 2 at that point they will disable the email account and re-enable it and reset your password. That is what I did for customers when I worked for MSN 9 out of 10 times it worked when I reset there account on my end.
