if it is something that has just happened recently, then try the old 'i.t. fix' of restarting your pc. sometimes this will work quicker than figuring out what went wrong. if that doesn't work, post again

On the top left hand corner of your ATS page is the following...

CUSTOMIZE: DARK/LIGHT

What does yours say?

I hope it's as simple an explanation as this.

dgtempe said it is happening on other websites also so it's not the light/dark ats setting causing it. that's why i suggested the restart first

Justy, i'll go ahead and shut it down completely and see what happens. Thank you!!!

I had a problem recently where all ATS pages were rendered as just blank white pages (other sites worked fine). But a simple restart seemed to fix the problem.

I have Windows XP and i got out on AOL dial up
It all started when i tried NetZero and i hated it, that's whenit all went blank. I erased netzero and then installed AOL (dont like it either but its something) and it stayed the same. blank.
BTW., i just restarted it and it was the same

aol and netzero are service providers.

browsers are something like 'internet explorer' or 'firefox' (recommended)
which browser do you use to surf?

ok - first, dump internet explorer and get firefox as it is waaaaay better and very customisable ( www.mozilla.com )

if your not that brave, then on internet explorer, click on ....

tools
internet options
general
colours ..... if you had normal windows colours then click the tickbox if it isn't already. otherwise, look above and click on the boxes to choose your own.

hope that's helpful

Thanks Justyc,

I'm downloading Firefox right now (may take forever) but i will try it and see what happens.

Again, thank you all for all your help!

when it's set up, go to ...

tools
options
content ... and you can customise the colours there.

if you want a list of really really cool firefox add-ons to get to make surfing easier and more fun then let me know

aol and netzero both provide "customized" versions of internet explorer.

switching back and forth most likely made ie all foobar. unfortunately ie can not be uninstalled completely from windows, but it can be reinstalled or upgraded.

if you have not updated to ie7 yet, you might as well do it. it's bloattastic and bugtified like any other piece of billyware, but it should fix the problem. if you've already updated, you can uninstall and reinstall the update.

or uninstall it and let it revert to ie6. that might work too.

of course just switching to firefox will hide the problem, but it's still broken. and ie is useful for pages that are ms friendly.

ahh but once you take the plunge and spend a little time getting used to firefox and how amazing it is you will NEVER go back to using internet explorer (which is all the bad points you mentioned and more) unless you want to tell it's users what they must click on to change settings as i did. i dont think ive opened internet explorer for over 3 years now!

i would also use opera as a secondary browser before i would touch internet explorer again.

I mean there's some sites that are ms friendly and everything else unfriendly. activex laden code and other pieces that ms has gotten sued over but are still used. plus firefox still processes css differently so if someone has written a site without considering how firefox would display it it could be all forked up.

glad it's working again for you.

go to this page and search for and install the following recommended add-ons.... you can spend ages looking at all the others there but these are my definitely 'must have' list...

adblock plus (also needs 'adblock filterset g updater installed) - blocks ads
flashgot - good downloader especially when used with 'flashget'
paste and go 2 - saves time when pasting an url in the address bar
fasterfox - good tweaker
sessionsaver ( get the installer from here ) - will set whatever you choose to open auto with firefox
tab mix plus - great for when you have a few tabs open
who is this person - excellent right click search tool


other useful ones are...

bugmenot - bypass site logins
conquery - good right click search extension
opanda iexif - view picture exif info
resizr - make jpgs bigger
torrent finder toolbar - limit it to a few selected sites or it's a nightmare
video downloader
foxlingo - if you need pages translated in another language

let me know if you need any help with firefox
