    I sent my laptop in to Best Buy because one of the hinges cracked and I have a 4 year warranty on it so everything's free. Then when I get it back they said they replaced the hard drive and I didn't really care since I just reformatted before I gave it to them anyway. So that's that.

    Now that I have it back I can't connect to the internet through either of these programs. I had to use a flash drive to get firefox on here to connect to the internet.

    I don't care about IE but it was the only thing that came on my computer at first so I couldn't do anything. And all the people I know in Canada only use MSn

    I don't like the messaging programs where it's all bundled together.

    are you gay?

    Microsoft is the definition of "bundled together". Why the fuck does msmsgs start with outlook when I don't use MSN? Hmm???

    I don't know what's going on and I'm kind of afraid.

    My fucking network won't connect to msn at all today. What the frig? On my brothers Windows rig I get that connection troubleshooter, and all the things are TICKED OKAY. MSN must be having trouble. I can login on live.com.

    Because "something wrong" implies the entire universe is borked.

    It's working now. Thanks for the effort and the info.
