For some reason my computer messed up on em yesterday. I was trying to log on to myspace.com and it wouldnt let me for some reason. I never had that problem with them before. I went to another system and tried it and it worked, so it has to be coming from my system! I would like to know if there is a way I can restore my system to how it was before it messed up? please help

Hello and welcome to Geeks to Go.

When you tried to log onto Myspace, did an error occur? Or did the website not appear at all? If an error did occur, what was the error?

Also, what anti-virus/anti-spyware programs do you use?

So you tried to log on, but it said you needed to sign up, even though you did already? If so, have you tried logging on from a different computer?

Click start then control panel, click network and internet then internet options Click apply after each change.

On the general tab, click delete cookies, click delete files, include offline content, click clear history. If you have broadband / cable (fast) click settings and reduce the drive space used to 30MB

Click the security tab and click default

Click privacy and click default

Click programmes and click reset web settings

Click advanced to tick, do not save encrypted pages to disc and also empty the temporary internet files folder when the browser is closed, click apply

Click start then all programmes, accessories, system tools, to run disc clean up, reboot

Boot the PC and keep tapping F8 until you get options, choose command prompt only, type scanreg /restore then press enter

Use the arrow keys select a date and check it has started next to it, use the arrow keys to choose restore then press enter

that didnt work either. I would of thought that this website would be out of my favorites but it is still there also! Im puzzled because it said that the registry was successful with no errors, and on top of that I went all the way from friday january 27th.
