I recently started having problems opening internet explorer when I have my default page set to MSN. I can open internet explorer when I have it set up to go to www.army.mil as my default. Then it will open and I change the address to www.msn.com and I get the message: Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close....I close the internet and retry till about the third time it will work. Sometimes it's ok and other times I just can't get in.

I went thru the forums but I couldn't find anything. I am not a computer person as far as technical problems- LOL but I manage. The last time I used this website I got some great step by step information to remove some spyware on my home computer, if someone can do the same again I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you.

Have you checked your anti-virus and anti-spyware applications? Several of them have a "lock the homepage" option, that you might have forgotten about

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
