MSN homepage

I use MSN for my hopepage and all functioned well till last week. I had the homepage color set to black instead of the standard blue for better contrast in reading. Now everytime I log the page starts in blue and when I click on the black to change the color it just restarts the page in black without having pressed the set key. Any ideas!!!!! Thanks

You need to be signed into an activated Hotmail account, so in other words it's a function which is based on session cookies most probably.

Here is how I begin after signing into W7

1.. Messenger automatically start when I start W7 and I reduce it

2.. I then proceed to the IE icon and select the MSN homepage

3.. The MSN homepage begins in BLUE and this is where I reset the color to BLACK

I use it with out problems. I would do this. Delete all cookies. Open IE. Go to MSN. Go to MY MSN. Log in and check save password and auto login. Set up your home page. In IE Menu go to Tools/Internet Options/Home Page Use current button, Apply, Close. If you do not have an account you can get one free from Live...it will work. You have to be on My MSN for it to save settings.

I use the black screen too...neat huh?
