Hmmm... can you log into similar sites? I'm wondering if there is just a problem with the cookies or something like that that's making it think it's not logged in. Does it actually give any error message?

good thought, yes it does do that for every site... although Ive only done 2 sites Yahoo email and myspace. So I cleaned out the registry (regscrup xp) did a virus scan (house call) and used Cleanup. So what should i do or try next... when ever typed in user and pass the next page it goes to is as if you didnt have an internet connection. "cannot connect to site" in FF, or just the default error page in IE.... thats the only problem.

Check the hosts file and make sure it's not being blocked there. Not knowing what version of Windows it is, the hosts file should be located appropriately...

Windows 95/98/Me
c:\windows\hosts

Windows NT/2000/XP Pro
c:\winnt\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

Windows XP Home
c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

Sorry, I should have explained. You can edit it with wordpad or notepad, just be sure to save it without an extension. Below is a sample of what it probably looks like. If it contains no reference to MySpace, then it should be ok. The default will only have the one entry for the localhost.

# Copyright (c) 1993-1999 Microsoft Corp.
#
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
#
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
#
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine (host) name denoted by a '#' symbol.
#
# For example:
#
# 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server
# 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host

127.0.0.1 localhost
