  • The link does not work in IE7, I end up here:

    I tried to use <CTRL><F5> on the page above, no joy.

    Still using Firefox.

    What Security / Privacy settings are you using in IE 7?

    I have my set to:
    - Trusted sites is using Medium security
    - Added "microsoft.com" to trusted sites
    - IE's Privacy settings to Medium
        - If you have it set on High, then take sure to trust cookies from Microsoft.com and Live.com

  • Changed settings to match yours, still getting the same error.

    Took it over to a Vista VM (new) and it worked OK.

    What gives?

    Is the IE7 on the WinXPSP3 broken? How to test?

    That's what I'm running at home, and I haven't noticed anything strange.

  • Try deleting all Microsoft cookies and javascript in your IE 7 cache. I've had to do it more than once to restore full access.
