I've now discovered that I can still access my emails if I use click here.
and when I right click the msn messenger 6.0 icon on my desktop and then right click properties I find the following under the shortcut tab:
the 'Target Location' box is empty.
the 'start in' box is empty.
the 'short cut key' box has the word none written in it but this is greyed out.
the 'run' box is also empty.
I deleted the original shortcut and made another one but it shows exactly the same as the above.
any ideas please as to why this icon appears to be empty whilst others on desktop all have 'pathways.
Is this also the cause of my being unable to use this icon to connect to msn website and get my hotmails?
