    Hello. I bought a new computer that came with MSN Messenger. To start the
    software, it wanted me to Register my E:mail adress with them etc...so I was
    setting everything up. It then wanted my home phone # adress etc and I don't
    put in any true phone numbers or adresses as I don't want solicitation. Then
    it asked me my age so I threw in a ficticious age....something like June 12,
    2001. I then get everything all done and then click on a chat line and I get
    a red screen that says I can not go online because I am under the age of 18
    ! How do I fix this? I went into the profile section and I can change the
    age for other folks to read, but can't change the hard settings that I sent
    MSN. Am I gonna have to wait till 2019 before I am able to go online? Thanks
    for any responses on this...Jim

    Ignore the log in name, log in as a new user and create a new profile
    including any information you *want* to use.
    This time put a realistic age in ;-)
