    Serious now: are you talking about msn and MyIE (aka Maxthon) or IE and msn (cause they just presented a beta here in Belgium) it seems to me that they still working on msn (still msn). maybe you have a network issue and therefor not getting the connection...

    just my two cents;

    Repair Internet Explorer 6

    http://www.theeldergeek.com/repair_reinstall_ie_and_oe_6.htm

    A number of XP users have reported situations with Internet Explorer 6 becoming corrupted and reporting a number of different errors. While there is certainly no guarantee, the two procedures listed below have restored functionality to IE6 for many users experiencing problems.

    Note: Both methods listed require that the Microsoft Windows XP CD-ROM be available.

    Method 1: Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.x Repair for Windows XP

    * From the Start menu, select Run.
    * In the Open field, type sfc /scannow (Note: There is a space between sfc and /scannow)
    * Select the OK button.
    * Follow the prompts throughout the System File Checker process.
    * Reboot the computer when System File Checker completes.


    Method 2: Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.x Repair for Windows XP

    * From the Start menu, select Search, select All Files and Folders.
    * Select More Advanced Options and place a checkmark beside Search Hidden Files and Folders option.
    * Ensure that Search System Folders and Search Subfolders are also checked.
    * In the All or Part of the File Name box, type ie.inf
    * In the Look In drop-down menu, select C: or the letter of the hard drive that contains the Windows folder.
    * Click the Search button.
    * In the search results pane, find the ie.inf file located in Windows\Inf folder.
    * Right click the ie.inf file and click Install on the context menu.
    * Reboot the computer when the file copy process is complete.
