on my mother-in-law-of-the-future's computer, something is amiss but none of us can work out how to make it work again. It refuses to let anyone in the house sign in to MSN applications (explorer, messenger, hotmail etc). No amount of checking for viruses, adware etc has helped. We read that reinstalling xp rids you of the problem for 2-3 weeks, but we can't find the disc anywhere. I believe this problem happened once before, but this time system restore will not let us go back far enough to resolve the problem.
Thanks, if you sort this out, the old dear will be forever in your debt :)
