If all was fine before the update this is probably what has caused the problem can you uninstall the update? 23:30 17 Aug 2005

nope, msn explorer is classed as a windows component so the only way to uninstall the update would be to uninstall msn explorer as a whole

it just says 'signing in....' for ages (hours if i let it)
it's fully allowed on all ports on the firewall so its not a firewall problem :(
