This seems to be a common problem right now. I can't get on, my sister can't get on neither can my brother in Australia. My brother has gone back to using version 7. I have removed my copy from my store of downloads so I am stuck.

Just tried my version 7.5 and it signed in first time,maybe its an AOL thing.

It is not an AOL thing as I am with Pipex, my sister is with NTL and my borther is with an Australian company, so it is quite widespread. Installing version 7 would be the best route to take if you still have it.

Hmm,well im with BT and mine works great.So either its an ISP thing or a pc setting thing i dunno.I havent had any trouble signing in with v7.5 since i installed it.Version 7 and 7.5 connect to the same MSN server so if 1 version signs in the other should.

Thanks everyone for the advice. I agree with ACOLYTE that it's probably a PC setting. Unfortunately AOL don't make things easy when trying to configure other programs through their browser. I'm not quite sure what to try first.
