msn page is blank, like it is blocked

March 2, 2013 at 09:04:54
Specs: Windows 7
I can get to any msn page except for msn.com, somehow I must of hit something that blocked it but have no idea what. I have tried typing it in, reentering it as my homepage and then I just get a blank page.

Any chance that some Antivirus or Anti-spyware program is blocking it or preventing you changing it? What such programs have you onboard?

If there is nothing obvious then download, install and run this freebie (just in case you have something weird on there):

I am using internet explorer. I ran a malware scan and that didn't appear to work. I downloaded new drivers from MSN and that didn't work. Finally while I was my son fixed it. He said he typed in Dell MSN.com and the page returned! Really I have no idea how that fixed it but it is now working. Thanks for offering to help.

Thanks for offering to help, somehow my son got it fixed. I worked all morning trying to find out what was wrong. I did run a malware program before I quit and that removed 106 items so maybe it was something in there but it still didn't work when I tried it, but did shortly later. Thanks again!

Hmm. It seems from what I've read it is a Dell redirect and not the proper MSN.
Whatever, as long as you are happy.

By the way, MalwareBytes (my link) is used widely on these forums.
It often finds and fixes what AV's and other Antimalware programs miss.

This should work.

Open Windows explorer, it doesn’t matter if you are redirected.
Go to “Tools”, click on “Compatibility View Settings”.
In the “add this site window”, type, “www.msn.com” or what ever start page you want and click “Add”.
Now click “Close” and close your browser.
Reopen Explorer and you should be at MSN.com or what ever page you have chosen.

"I ran a malware scan and that didn't appear to work"

Do you mean it wouldn't even run, or that it ran but didn't find or fix anything?
