    Okay all I am having slow computer problems again. The other day i was on the computer and all was fine. Then a few hours later hubby tried to come on the computer and it looked like it was going to load etc. taskbar flashed and then went to my background screen ( teal green) and stayed there. No matter what i tried safe mode , etc it wouldnt work. I reinstalled my win 98 se and it works now. however.. now anything to do with msn.. (i know there was problems with the messanger ) but any thing to do with msn wont work i am trying to redownload msn messanger and It wont even give me the option to save etc. i can go to the download page and click download but nothing happens. i have tried to go to other msn pages and nope.. any ideas? I had that msbb problem last week but that is resolved.. i have ran housecalls and spybot and nothing comes up. Please Please help me.. oh and my computer is just running totally slow and not like the norm.

    Thanks

    What happens if you choose 'save as' and select a location?
