Okie doke, well let's start with... what program are you using to browse the Internet?

Internet Explorer? Firefox? Something else?

Just click on Help from the top menu of your browser. Then go down and click About. Tell me what program and version it is.

Ok, on the Tools menu, click Internet Options. Pick the General tab (which may already be selected).

In the middle section (Temporary Internet Files) click the Delete Files button. That clears your cache.

Then click the Delete Cookies button.

Click OK then close your browser and restart it. See if that fixes the login problem.

If that doesn't do it, then do a little spinning dance while throwing pieces of grass over your right shoulder with your left hand.

Hey, you never know. :mrgreen:

Now, switch to firefox or install these programs and run daily if you just have to use Internet Exploder.

Ad-Aware
Spybot Search and Destroy

Also, another firewall besides Microsoft's will protect you better.

Zone Alarm

Microsoft was designed for local nets and they have very few clues about internet safety.

Those will speed up your computer quite a bit, I would bet.

You can speed it up more by turning off services you don't need to have running for a home computer:

Windows XP Service Pack 2 Service Configurations

Not to argue with you piper, but Ad-aware and Spybot just aren't cutting it any more these days. Even Zone alarm is falling behind.

Here are some free programs I'm using:

AVG Free - anti-virus
Spyware Terminator - anti-spyware
Safteynet - firewall

I'm thinking of adding more layered spyware protection by adding another program or too. What one misses, another will get.

Firefox ROCKS!

Oops! I will have to check my Windows help sites more frequently, but I seldom use Microsoft products because of their business practices. Do you have any suggested ad removers? One of my ministries is to help elderly Christians keep their computers running as good as they can, and most (I have 2 Linux converts so far and am installing for another as soon as time and God permits) do run Microsoft Windows. Thanks for the linkies!

I run Linux (programmed for love, not money), Fedora Core 6 distribution.

I am trying to find time to install Ubuntu Christian Edition, but I am much too busy this month.

Friends don't let friends use Windows

Whistle Collector, I hope somebody here can help you out. That's a gut-wrenching feeling you got there. Is there an IT person you know locally who could come help you out with that thing? I hope you get it worked out.


Question, Kitty: If one is only using Firefox, would you still recommend a spyware program or two?

I used to use two on the old laptop, the IT guru that gifted me with it put them both on there and told me to do exactly what you're recommending--one catches what the other misses. But they were, ironically, Spybot and Adaware. I haven't put anything on this new one because I only use Firefox.

I run AVG and ZoneAlarm. I just downloaded Spyware Terminator, just in case, and I'll try that other firewall, Safetynet.

Thanks for the advice!

The goal of every internet user these days has to be to not become a drone. Sad.

YIKES!

Whistle Collector, clearing your browser cache and deleting the cookies from your browser CAN NOT harm your computer. It's just not possible.

It sounds like it may be a disk issue (as in replace your hard drive) but before you do that, I'd try a registry checker/cleaner. Although if your computer won't open any programs, it would be kind of hard to check the registry.....

I'm using RegCure, but I can't remember if that was free or if it's a paid program.


Connie: Absolutely yes on the spyware checker. Spyware is practically uncontrollable these days. It even gets through Firefox.

Just to be sure, you should also check your memory to make sure there are no weird conflicts happening. Here's a free memory diagnostic. You can either run it as a standalone from Windows, or you can create a bootable CD:
