Note that these instructions are based on Firefox so IE might be a little bit different, but it should be close enough that you can figure it out. If you can't figure it out and want help, PM me. Also as was previously suggested, you could have timed out--even if you are going as fast as your computer allows, if you are on a slow computer and/or have a bad connection it could time out.
Re Firefox vs. IE. I recently switched to Firefox and it is a lot faster. It is also more secure--someone trying to hack you doesn't mean it's insecure, it means that it's secure if they tried and failed... and it was likely the same person every time. Make sure you have anti-virus installed on your computer and run regular virus scans.
for Starters found out the problem, was ot on my end, also my computer is pretty fast and excellant connection, also the perps that tried to hack me got thru on Firefox and thru the firefox virus scanner, but my own personal program caught it, evidently the program was leaked thru Firefox on a sub program thru access of the firefox programming.
right now I use IE8 which works fine for me and no break-ins yet, but I neither trust IE either so have my own security program running, and trust Firefox even less cause the only way the virus could have gotten as far as it did was for the hackers to have access to the Firefox programming base system to imbed their code within it.
