I dial up to connect. I hear the dial tones just fine. I hear the static sound just fine. It seems to connect, just like always, but then I get a message that says that it can't verify the password or username. I thought it might be that my sbc account was cancelled (I get it free because my buddy pays for DSL and he gave me one of the 10 free accounts that was alotted to him) for some reason.
So, I went to the Control Panel - Internet Connections - and tried to set up an account with an ISP that was previously installed on the computer when I bought it (MSN). I don't remember the password so when I click the "Forgot my password" link it tells me that it has to establish a connection first. I click "Okay" and it tries to connect but the same thing as above happens. All the noises happen and then it just says "retrying" and after like 4 tries it gives up.
Did I some how mess up the internet settings on the computer? The reason I ask is because I installed the spyware program, based on the recommendation from another help website, and I fear that I may have messed something up. The guy told me to cut and paste the log before I attempted to fix any entries, which of course I did not do, and now I fear that I may have caused the problem. Help.
