TWS login troubles

  1. TWS: I'm entering my name and PW, it gets to the "Login in Progress..." dialog with the little bar bouncing back and forth... and that's it. The dialog just stays up there bouncing sback and forth and nothing else happens.

    Any ideas on how to fix this problem?

    Other info:

    (1) internet connection is fine, other net programs are working fine

    (2) I removed and re-installed TWS (but not Java). No effect.

    (3) I am logged into TWS just fine on another account on another computer on my network. It is fine to do this, I've been operating almost a year this way.


  2. I just noticed that after every few bounces of the bar, a "cancel" button appears then quickly dissapears in the middle the little window.
  3. Problem solved: uninstall and re-install Java.

    It works fine now.
