  • Trouble today getting on MiceChat. Please help.

    Today, I logged on the internet as usual. I have AOL. When I did my final click on MiceChat, a small square box appeared instead. It was one of those messages about security. It asked me if I wanted to load a file labeled MiceChat. I clicked cancel. It would not go away. I was unable to access the site. I was unable to get rid of the box. My husband tried to load the file and then discard it through the recycle bin. We are confused. The same message appears on my husband's computer and he has MSN.

    I finally accessed the site by going through MiceAge and clicking on an old thread.

    So what is this file, and why can't I get rid of it? I don't think I accidentally asked for anything. I could not get on MiceChat the normal way. Frustrating. Does anyone know what happened and can help me fix it?

    Thanks.

    Hey Barbara,

    Same thing happened to me, and last week the micechat
    shortcut links didn't work at time. I accessed micechat the
    same way you did, clicking on the micechat article, and
    clicking on one of the links to a specific topic.

    Thought it was my aol, at first, since I have dial up and
    it constantly disconnects me. Even worse, when I play
    some of the micechat games, stupid aol has problems
    when the connection goes bad, and can't reconnect.
    Then I can't record the score of whatever game I'm playing,
    and usually have to reset aol again.

        Well, I guess I'm not the only one... same thing is happening with the links in the michechat toolbar, going directly to micechat.com, etc... I have to get to here through the news ticker.

          What is this file that it wants you to load? It won't let you say no. Even if you try to load the file, it still will not let you on the website. So confused I was. This happened early this morning. I went out for a few hours. Only way I got on here, was to click on an old thread through MiceAge.

          So I am assuming, that file is still lingering around. What is it/

            They're php files... basically, the building blocks of the site. The new posts link won't work yet from the toolbar, but at least MiceChat.com is working again.

              Our host is upgrading everyone's PHP (and other sub-components), due to a DoS attack they had last week. They are conserned that this may happen to other users, so they are doing a few system upgrades on there servers.

              Keep those caches clear.

                O.K. I don't know too much about the workings of a computer, but even my husband is stumped and he's more knowledgeable then me. Now, I am on MiceChat and everytime I click on the word MiceChat, which brings you usually to the page with all the forums, I now get this warning box. It says File Download Security Warning. It also says: Name: index php. It says Microsoft Picture It Document 16.3 KB. It says it is from MiceChat.

                I am now more confused than ever.

                  I just noticed this. Click on the words MiceChat, anywhere on the site and I get the security warning box. Is this happening to anyone else?

                    Clear your cache:

                    In Internet Explorer:
                    1. Click "Tools > Internet Options..."
                    2. Click "Delete Files"
                    3. Check the box, and click OK
                    4. Click OK again.
                    6. MiceChat Should be working fine and dandy.

                    In Firefox:
                    1. Click "Tools > Options..."
                    2. Click "Privacy".
                    3. Click the "Cache" tab.
                    4. Click "Clear Cache Now"
                    5. Click OK.
                    6. MiceChat Should be working fine and dandy.

                        I have a Mac running Safari and the first time I tried to access today I got a message saying Safari could not connect to the server. I cleared the cache, quit Safari and relaunched it and it worked fine after that. Like Monorail said, usually clearing the cache and restarting the app helps.

                            Does still seem to be running a little "glitchy" and slow. Not sure if its my computer (its only 9 months old) or my connection ( I have DSL).....
