Microsoft has a couple of new beta downloads I'd like to try. My computer is completely up to date, even with the optional upgrades, with microsoft. For some reason, though, I can't even access the downloads page from my computer! It's maddening. I've tried everything that I know to try. I don't have this issue with anything else.
I've done everything that microsoft suggests...I've cleaned disc and temporary internet pages and history. I unchecked "show friendly HTTP error message" in advanced internet options. I tried to download from mozilla, but can't even obtain that site to get the necessary plug-in for mozilla. I purchased and ran "Tracks Eraser Pro" to clean up the index.dat file(s) even. I added the site to accepted sites in the security tab of internet options. I've done several other things, but nothing is working. I can say my computer is pretty clean probably.
Someone suggested that I uninstall my IE 6 and reinstall it. I'm not going to do that if I can't access the website to reinstall it.
I'm at a loss. I can upgrade fine. When I initiate the down load, all is well...microsoft even thanks me for my download. However, the second page it opens up to go to the downloads site says "this page cannot be displayed". I tried everything it suggests on that page as well.
Help??? Thank you so much!
