    I certainly hope someone can help me. I am going crazy. I
    can't seem to get MSN Messenger to log on. says I am not
    on the internet or servers unavailable. Well, the system
    is fine and I am on the internet.

    I have been going round and round. Last time I posted
    someone said to use Web Messenger. Well, when I go there
    it says that a pop up blocker is detected! I don't have
    any pop up blockers installed anymore. Why is it
    detecting something that is not there?

    I have also went to
    to check my IE Browswer. It says that cookies are NOT
    enabled and I have it set to accept ALL cookies.

    I don't understand where all this stuff is coming from. I
    am running win2k, and IE6

    Thanks. I just want to be able to get to MSN Gaming zone
    and sign onto MSN Messenger again.

  2. Hi Nina

    I say that you may need to put the site in your trusted zone in IE I have
    "*" and "*" in mine without '''' . SP2 will
    block the good sites and the bad one from running scripts on your system.

    Thx for the advice but that doesn't help. I need to find
    out why my system is saying I am blocking cookies and
    running a pop up blocker when I am not. I believe that is
    what is affecting my whole situation. I need to get that
    stuff off my system. I deleted every single pop up
    blocker there was on my system. I even did a search on my
    system and there was nothing with blocker or pop up on it
    anymore even in the text.

    Somone PLZ help me. I just want to play and talk to
    people again.

    Thanks for trying. That doesn't work either. It has to
    be something on my computer. Something is making it say
    that I am blocking cookies and pop ups. Because the MSN
    Web Messenger still says a pop up blocker has been
    detected. Heck it should tell you WHERE! :(

    The message I get when I try to just click on MSN
    Messenger 6 is:

    "We are unable to sign you in to .NET Messenger Service,
    possibly because of a problem with the service or with
    your Internet connection. Please make sure that you are
    connect to the Internet. 0x81000301

    I am not sure if that will help or not. I am on the
    internet and can get to other pages. I even ran my pc
    thru PC Checkup. I guess what I really need is a
    program that will detect and delete any cookie or pop up
    blocker on my system. Even tho in my add/delete programs
    there is none. Something had to be sneaky and get into my
    system without me putting it there.

    :( Ready to dump whole PC out the window

    I really don't think it is your computer. Something is
    wrong with the server or something. I was getting the
    same thing when I was signiing into hotmail or trying to
    sign in. It would tell me to enable cookies. But then I
    would sign in again and everything would be fine and I
    didn't do anything. The system is very screwed up.

    What I have learned since finding this site about 3 days
    ago is that, they don't tell you what is really going
    on. They tell people to do all these different things
    that don't work. I know it is a big headache. I have
    sent mail to someone and I don't think they can sign into
    their account. The problem doesn't have a rhyme or
    reason, it is just so widespread. Some people it affects
    others it doesn't.

    I believe you can try and find the problem yourself on
    your computer, but you won't because it is not your
    computer it is MSN and MSN HOTMAIL.

    MVP's tell us the truth

    ROFL Is no way all these problems are not related.

    I used to be able to get onto MSN Messenger, and USED to
    be able to get into MSN Gaming Zone. Now all of a sudden
    for 5 days now I can't? Give me a break.

    I have never had a problem deleting MSN Gaming Zone and
    getting it to redownload before. Now it just don't
    download the essential tell me it isn't my

  9. It's not always on the server.. In some cases, the problem does lie on your
    When you don't have an answer, you try the things you know have worked in
    the past. That's what the MVP's and other helpers are doing in this
    Please see my above statement. Just because we are helping here, or because
    people have MVP after their name, doesn't mean that they know anything more
    than what they're telling you. We're not Microsoft employees. We're users,
    just like yourself. It's not a conspiracy. Think about it this way, you're
    not locked into using MSN or Hotmail for anything.. So, why would we want to
    tell you lies about their service? It wouldn't do Microsoft any good,
    because you'd leave.

    As for Nina. I'm not guaranteeing this will work or help, but it can't
    hurt. If you haven't tried this already, I would suggest downloading SpyBot
    S&D and Ad-Aware SE Personal, and running them on your computer. This is
    just in case some form of spyware is blocking cookies, or corrupting files.

    Also, if you have the MSN Toolbar in Internet Explorer, make sure you have
    the Pop Up Blocker turned off, or that you have *, *
    and * allowed in there.

    The links to Spybot and Ad-Aware are
    (SpyBot) and Ad-Aware SE Personal (Look for this link
    on the left hand side, as they have a lot of products listed.

    Let us know if this helps or not.. And, I would also follow helper's

    Hope this helps you.
