Robert Preston :

Hi

Robert Preston :

IF you go to hotmail.com and login, can you access your email?

Customer:

yes

Robert Preston :

Ok but msn.com won't load?

Customer:

no and it's driving me crazy. I've been using MSN for 8 years. First time I'm having trouble.

Robert Preston :

Ok what browser do you use?

Customer:

I'm sorry but i don't know, help please LOL

Robert Preston :

That would be Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome most likely

Customer:

No I don't think so, when i log on i just click msn, that's my home page.

Robert Preston :

yes, msn.com is the website...

Robert Preston :

you have to use an internet browser to access a website

Customer:

Ok, now what do i do?

Robert Preston :

I need to know what browser to tell you how to fix it

Customer:

internet explorer

Customer:

Please excuse me, i have a phone call.

Customer:

I'm back.

Customer:

Hello are you still there?

Customer:

Could you please answer, are you still there. I hate to be a pain but I need to get back into my kitchen.

Robert Preston :

Sorry

Robert Preston :

Do this

Robert Preston :

Go to the Tools menu then Internet Options

Robert Preston :

Once in there, click the 'Advanced' tab

Robert Preston :

then click Reset, then Reset again

Robert Preston :

After that restart your browser and go to msn.com

Customer:

I'm trying to reset but it's telling me to close everything out, how?

Customer:

Will i lose you and this page?

Robert Preston :

Yes, just bookmark/favorite the page and then come back.

Customer:

Now i'm really confused. When i hit the reset button, a box comes up and tells me to close everything and the only way i can get to "tools" is through Internet Explorer. What am i doing wrong?

Robert Preston :

What do you mean?

Robert Preston :

You click Reset, then Reset a second time.

Robert Preston :

Once that finishes, close Internet Explorer

Robert Preston :

then restart it

Customer:

Ok again i can't close internet explorer because i need to click tools. Is there some other way?

Robert Preston :

You close Internet Explorer AFTER you reset

Robert Preston :

You don't close it before...

Customer:

This is driving me crazy. Everything is closed except internet explorer so when i get to internet explorer and check advanced tab and then click reset, the box tells me to close all open programs. What the heck am i doing wrong?

Customer:

I mean internet options.

Customer:

You are talking about the reset box at the bottom of the page

Customer:

Please answer, I need to get back to my cooking.

Customer:

Am i being charged one flat rate for this service?

Robert Preston :

Yes

Robert Preston :

That's correct.

Robert Preston :

When you click Reset, just click Reset again

Robert Preston :

you can also try it this way

Robert Preston :

go to Control Panel > Internet Options

Robert Preston :

and do it there with Internet Explorer closed

Customer:

That doesn't work either. I still get that message everytime i click reset. This was on the control panel.

Robert Preston :

You will get the message regardless...

Robert Preston :

You just need to proceed with it

Robert Preston :

Also, you didn't do it right.

Robert Preston :

You never left the chat, so you didn't close Internet Explorer

Robert Preston :

YOu have to close Internet Explorer then go to Control Panel > Internet Options

Customer:

Ok that worked, now what?

Robert Preston :

Ok now try accessing msn.com again

Customer:

I tried and when i click msn it takes me to me e-mail. Should i restart my computer?

Robert Preston :

Click this link:

Robert Preston :

http://www.msn.com/

Robert Preston :

What does it take you to

Customer:

Are you ready for this? It tells me i can't open the page for msn.com

Robert Preston :

Ok sounds like you have a virus blocking your pages then

Robert Preston :

Try this

Robert Preston :

Download that, install it and update it

Robert Preston :

Then do a Full Scan of your computer and remove everything it finds

Customer:

Hi i'm back. There was no viruses or anything else so i'm right back where i started from. Now i knew why my son tells me to buy a Mac.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
