sorry i forgot to add that my MSN messenger cant log in as well. it just keeps saying " signing in" with the 2 buddies dancing in circles. but my pals see me online and when they try to say something, an error pops up saying i cant start a conversation with them. however, Windows messenger works. tried reinstalling MSN messenger and Windows Media Player... still doesnt work. argh!
I'm using Windows XP Home Edition with NO SP2. Recently, i installed a few trial programs to try them out. they are avast! antivirus, zonealarm security suite. i had to uninstall my current antivirus which was norton antivirus 2003 and thats when the problems started coming... now, i find that i can't open Windows Media Player, Windows Help and Support and System Restore. These are the only programs i have tried so far. My IE 6 cant go to hotmail(stalls at a page called ''Continue''. probably couldnt redirect to the hotmail page). Cant go to Windows Update either... it just shows a blank page... i've never had this problem before, even without SP2. the error that keeps popping up is "An internal application error has occured". I tried Spybot, Ad-aware with no results... now what? =(
