Hi everybody,

Just bought a new Mesh computer which is V.Nice!

Having problems in accessing my account details on e-bay aswell as my own details on tiscali when trying to set up a new e-mail account for my daughter - ususal 'cannot display/find page' message - can't remember it exactlt - sorry. It runs on XP and was wondering whether it's my security settings? Thanks in advance.

Not sure if it's the security settings, knobler, bring up the Status Bar and see where it's trying to connect to: In Internet Explorer go to, View > Status bar. It will appear along the bottom of your screen.

Appears to be trying to connect to the right site etc... just won't go through - just seems funny that it's security sites etc...?

Should also say that I can access the sites on my laptop which makes me think the settings are not right.

In Internet Explorer, Tools|Interner Options, check that the settings are the same as on your laptop.

Try temporarily turning off your firewall if you have one installed, knobler.
