error viewing msn.com

By CrisBilly ·
I use ie5 as my default browser, my default home page is msn.com. When I opened my browser a message "Attention: your browser should be upgraded to successfully view msn.com". When I click refresh it views msn.com normally, but I have to refresh it each time I start my browser. So I upgraded it to ie6 online. Same thing, I have to refresh it again to view msn.com normally. What will I do?

Try clearing your cache files, go to Tools, Internet options, General tab, and choose delete files in the Temperary Internet Files area. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the help, but I tried that also before. I begin to think that a kind of virus is infecting my pc or its the Microsof that has the problem.

The content on the homepage matters too I believe. Have you tried making changes to your prefernces on the MSN homepage?

Guess i don't understand what is going on here. I can get to MSN just fine with either IE 5.5 or Netscape 4.78.

I suggest that you make sure that you have the install on your hdd, then remove the program from Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel, and remove following folder from the registry, reboot and start the re-install again:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE --> Software --> Microsoft --> Internet Explorer

Thanks for the suggestion, but I've already tried formatting my hard drive two times and clean installed Windows, clearing my cache, deleting temporary internet files and all offline contents. But same thing happens. Anyway, thanks for the help.
