  • I think that it affects due to the new Windows live login.
    Monday, March 12, 2007 7:04 PM
  • hey m8, i also think the same :) there might be lot of congestion or may be too much forwarding (redirecting) internally too.

  • Microsoft is not looking on forums what is going on here.... I think Admin should review the forum thread, so it will be better to us... even our problems can be solved easily... Sign In prblem is very major.
    Tuesday, March 13, 2007 4:53 PM
  • the admins dont get time from the main website, getting time for reviewing in the forums, seems to be impossible for the lazy admins ;)

  • cancel the loading page process and then refresh it. that will solve the problem. i've used this idea in my firefox browser, with IETab plugin, and it works fine.

  • check my last two replies. they address solution to the problem mentioned as thread header.

  • Even the IETAB in the FF for probs. There is the problem even while using IE :P sometimes it gets stuck into an infinite loop and keeps on re-requesting the site. :P it happens when you keep the site open for many hours. May be the cookie gets terminated, and it still feels that it has the cokie so it keeps on trynig to login, etc etc ::P

  • no, i am still facing the same problem.
    Monday, March 19, 2007 5:02 PM
  • Just check out that you are not having any adware or spyware got in by any means... the things were running fine with me before but then there are some spyware and adware that found their way in my pc.. i tried a lot to remove them but was unsuccessful.. rite now signing in using ie is not a problem but that adware creates some problem by opening up pages and delaying the work... I have to format the whole os to remove this now.. but due to time constraints will be doing it latter...

    So just check out that you are not having any virus or something.. because things are working fine in ie6 now

    Monday, March 19, 2007 5:54 PM
  • please check that you have IE 6 and firefox

    that's the combination i'm using and it works fine.

    Monday, March 19, 2007 8:01 PM
  • This problem occours in IE7 and IE6 too :P

    Try using some other softwares which allows to rollback to ie6.. like i had used uninstaller 2000 for uninstalling ie7 and it rolled back to ie6...
