    I am evaluating the free trial Credit Manager service. The problem is that I can no longer access my online credit report. I login and it gives me this message: "Either there was no activity for an extended period of time or you do not have an active session and the page has expired. Please return to the Consumer Center Welcome Page to initiate a new session." The whole process is under a minute, so I don't understand this. Anyone else have this problem?

    I have/had the same problem over and over. I emailed their support, with a lot of info. They responded with:

    I was using the IE6 Beta, I uninstalled and went back to IE5.5 and still had the problem. Recently I've gotten through, so I have no idea what is really causing it. It seems to be pretty sporadic for me.

    To get it to work with the IE6 beta I had to add experian.com (http and https) to my trusted sites under the security options.

    Check your cookies settings. I have W2K on my machine at home. If I log on to the computer with my wife's username, I get the same thing. If I logon with my username, it works.

    I was logged on to my PC as myself (not my wife) when I registered with CreditExpert.

    I set my security to low and added Experian and creditexpert to my trusted sites list in IE 6 Beta. You would think that Experian would know this.
    Thanks again!
