Hello again,I tried this last week but then couldn't sign in,same problem on
ebay,cured by deleting cookies so I tried it on this and lo I am IN.Why
should I have to delete cookies to sign in? Never had to before.
Main problem: can't update. The green line goes for about a minute then
error m
essage.My ISP gave me this: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=836941
this page showed several methods but I'm stuck after method 1 - which just
checked the inet connection, which is OK.Method 2 said reconfigure or update
firewall program. Well I don't know how to do this. And which firewall
anyway? We also have Norton Internet Sec which has a firewall.
Also we have 2 adware thingies Dc15.htm and Dc16.htm which my son thought
he had deleted but they're back.On Google I read something about Windows
Explorer might help but I don't seem to have that on this computer.
I really hate it when I am made to feel inadequate! Since we got this
computer 6 months ago I have DAILY done Windows and Norton updates and
thought it would keep us safe.Since January we've been on dialup. Does anyone
have suggestions? please...

Have you successfully downloaded SP2. If yes, I would go to Control
Panel>Windows Firewall and choose to turn it OFF. Since Norton Internet
Suite has a Firewall, running two can confuse things. If not, I would
continue the steps in the
MS article.
