    We are having trouble logging into our MYSPACE at work. Our computers are networked together and everytime we enter our login and password and hit login it goes directly to the Google homepage. We dont think that it is a matter of our company blocking the site we just arent sure what happend!! Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi, I'm sorry, but we cannot assist you with work computers for an issue like you posted.

    If you have an IT person or Dept. at work, ask them if they've blocked it, if they have, perhaps they will explain why, or help you get logged in. If you try to "fix" things yourselves, you may be violating your company's policies for all we know....

    MySpace has seen it's share of hacked ads and things like that, which can result in some security breaches for those working....

    Here's an example: Though they are old news...it's relevant:

    http://blog.washingtonpost.com/securityfix/2006/07/myspace_ad_served_adware_to_mo.html

    http://searchdomino.techtarget.com/originalContent/0,289142,sid4_gci1179000,00.html <<for this page to display you need to click on "Skip advertisement"..... the site is safe.

    Things like those 2 will probably continue to be done to MySpace....so, in regard to businesses, it's not safe to allow employees to go there.

    If you do find that the company is not allowing you to visit MySpace on the work computers>> do not try to work around the restriction....most employers monitor things, sounds like this company is.


    Ask permission to bring an Internet appliance- something that is yours, that can surf the Net.

    Or, you could ask if you could bring a notebook computer you own, to connect.... you might be asked to use certain protective antimalware programs, or have the computer examined by the tech dept..... to make sure it's not infected and stays that way.

    My only other idea would be that someone has found that way too much time was being used somewhere other than work-

    Since we have no way to verify anything in this type of situation we cannot help you work around what could be a restriction on work computers.
