i've been having yahoo and many other sign in problems. today I tried to go through aol.com on IE to log into my main account. I'm extremely worried now, as this is my main account with all my information.

The main aol.com page came up and I signed on but nothing happened. just a blank white screen.

So I closed it and tried to log onto aol.com again, but this time I did not get the main screen I got the same white page again.

And when I put in http://www.aol.com it never goes there now it goes directly to the page when i sign in with my info and this is the address:

http://my.screenname.aol.com/_cqr/login/lo...t%3d1&authLev=1

so now I can't even get into aol.com to check email. and now I'm still quite worried to even try it on my main computer through the actual software.

Could this be some hack or some internet explorer setting. I've deleted all cookies, and pages, and cache and history and everything. So I figured I would be able to get to the main aol.com page at least with no history the browser would be able to auto complete and I turned that off also and yet when I put in http://www.aol.com I still get the white screen and this adress.

http://my.screenname.aol.com/_cqr/login/lo...t%3d1&authLev=1

please hopefully something...

best wishes.

Pythius.

It just looks like AOL's frequent crummy service.

The link you posted the address for is just their regular password verification page.

Do you have a popup blocker working? Although if properly working it should not, It may be preventing the main AOL page from opening as they try to open a popup before their regular page opens.

I note that you have submitted an HJT log in that forum.

I believe many associated problems will be taken care of as you clean your
system following the HJT teams directions.

I am going to put a link from your log back to your post here to help the HJT techs.

If that doesn't fix it, you can always try Firefox and see if you get the same problem. Who knows maybe its spyware that targeted IE.

actually that is what I did is add firefox and things are okay now....but still so many other issues it seems it all started with SP2 download from Windows. But I guess that might be for another area to discuss those issues.

e.g. Search not working
user accounts on my computer can't change settings, each time I go i just get a blank window wheter from Safe mode - Administrator or even my name using admin. provileges. (hence a reading suggestion it is best to work on limited I use that account now instead an account with admin privleges)
aol: can't embed pictures in email
can't view movies
can't view profiles
photoshop problems says when I 'save for web' - cannot find ieexplore.exe
photoshop problem scanning


thanks for the suggestion on firefox...it is by far more amazing.

pythius,

Why didn't you continue through to the end with your HJT thread?

Although Firefox is a good browser, you still have to use IE to get windows updates.
You need to get it fixed, even if you don't use it for your everyday browsing.
