MSN home page error

by cimarron115 / February 24, 2004 11:13 AM PST

I use MSN as my homepage. A few days ago, when it was opening, all I got was a white page with m/'>here in the upper left hand corner.. when I refresh it, the home page opens.. any ideas what is causing this?

Go to your Internet Explorer Option and set your default start page manually to msn.com because it could be that u bookmarked an old link that's not available anymore.

thanks for the tip.. I've already tried that but it's not the problem I guess. It's just annoying and time consuming to have to refresh it..

Cimarron, I too experienced this problem all day yesterday. It happens from time to time since msn.com revised their homepage earlier this year. I think its the flaky homepage site and it is taking too much time for all the flashing neon signs and advertising garbage to load. Sometimes I count 60 items downloading. I suspect the homepage revision was more about promoting their advertisements than make real user improvements. Also I cannot access the "My MSN" page since the above change. Neither am I able to offer Feedback at link at the bottom of the homepage. It just stalls and nothing happens. I surmise they have disabled the site because of all the complaints.

I for one am considering changing my homepage as this has gone on for too long. If you find an answer please post your results. I would be interested in the experience of others.

Good luck!

Sad

Richard,

Thanks! At first I thought the suggested link was going to work but it eventually timed out and would not connect to "My MSN" page. The Feedback link did raise a page with comment "The requested page is not available".

I appreciate your effort! This is more annoying than anything else.

Glenn

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
