I'm normally able to access the forum pages at
But for some unknown reason, I can't now. And haven't been able to for a couple of days.
If I try to sign in, I see the screen go slightly darker, but there's no windows live id popup.

I've check my windows live id log in by logging in to hotmail, and that works.
But for some reason, the browser isn't letting the windows live id popup come up.
I'd like to step through fixing this if anyone has dealt with it before...

    Which web browser are you using?
    Try to open it using different browser.

    Are you using IE?  If you are try resetting the browser back to defaults.  Go to Tools - Internet Options - Advanced, click on "Restore advanced settings" then under that ckick on "Reset" and then try to go to the web site and see if that works.

    Your recommendation to reset was effective. Thanks.
