... but found nothing. Hmm, well, here's the problem. Today we got the computer back from my friend's brother and father's computer shop. It was bugging out and there were alot of viruses(virii? hehe). Well, they installed Panda/Titanium 2005 and now there are no more viruses.


Anyways, the problem now is that when we try going directly to hotmail.com, it starts to load(the flag moves in the top corner). However, it stops loading and where it says "BleepingComputer.com -> Posting New Topic - Microsoft Internet Explorer", it would say "Continue - Microsoft Internet Explorer". This is the link directly to it(I don't know if it will work for you or not).

I did a google search and found some info about clearing the Cookies and Temp Files(already done) and about doing 'Start > Run > regsvr32 softpub.dll' and it seemed to work, so I rebooted the PC. Still can't get into Hotmail(from browser). Also, we managed to get into Hotmail from MSN by clicking on the mail link, but we were not able to actually go INTO the e-mail itself.

I'm thinking it has something to do with either Panda(less likely because this happened briefly before and it fixed itself somehow?), Javascript or the Security Settings. Oh, and the page for the 'regsvr32' thing is...

MSN pages require a lot of cookie acceptance and use of active-X controls. Your security settings for your browser (or in XP) may have been changed at the shop, so you need to review them.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
