IE 6 /MSN probs on XP

  sheff_pud 22:58 29 May 2003

After having to reinstal XP on my machine I now find I can't log onto MSN Hotmail, Messenger, (username/password incorrect notice comes up), nor can I log onto my bank after the home screen.
When I try to update Windows I get an Active x error message.
I've triple checked all my internet settings and even tried re-installing IE 6 all to no avail.
Passwords etc all work ok on other pc's. PLEASE HELP.

Had no replies so far-does this mean that I've got an incurable/unknown fault?

Do you have a firewall running?

No fire wall running-and just tried WinsockFix but no joy.
