I've got this Acer Netbook a couple of months ago, and from the very start every time in Internet Explorer (latest version) when I want to go to www.msn.com
, it 're-routes' me to 'acer.us.msn.com' – and that's NOT where I want to go. I called Acer customer support several times and over several hours we went from resetting IE to original settings (not that I changed anything in IE anyway) to restoring Acer to its factory configuration (which took more than an hour). Acer even suggested using something else that IE, but why? If I have IE why can't I use it, right? I did my research in the Internet, found some other people with the same problem (sometimes with other computers/makers re-routing IE's msn.com to xxx.us.msn.com where xxx is something else that Acer), but no solutions that would work.
Acer customer support gave up on the fix and they will send me set of installation CDs so I can re-install OS on my Netbook (I guess). Acer also claims they do not have such a Web site as 'acer.us.msn.com'
I checked the registry as much as I could and I did find one entry of 'acer.msn.com' and I changed it to just 'www.msn.com
', but that did not made any difference how IE prevents me from accessing www.msn.com
Any suggestions of where to look for this 'acer.us.msn.com' on my netbook and how to get rid of it??
