I have a Compaq Presario with WIn XP. I have Verizon DSL and MSN as the IP in a package deal. Recently, I got an update prompt to "make my MSN experience more useful"........it forced the download each time I tried to log into my regular Verizon/MSN page. When I allowed it to complete, thinking it was some new MSN update I had to have, it turns out ot be MSN 8, an old product, WHICH it could not even complete the install because it said I already had a later version????.
Now I have old MSN 8, lost my "http://verizon.my.msn.com' homepage to a blank white page, and, I can't access my MSN email.
Any clues? Thanks!

Get rid of that MSN s*h*i*t. It's less than worthless. Microsoft will take advantage of any and all opportunities to control you & your PC. Just go to the Add/Delete section of Contol Panel and say ¡Adios!. Ignore any warnings that your life as you know it will end and just get rid of it. You can then set your home page to something less invasive like Yahoo or Google.
