I've managed to Uninstall IE7 (tho' why I had it at all baffles me - ooops, just remembered, I used it on the advice of these pages, cos I somehow didn't get a Spell Checker with IE8 ??).
I can now get through the Verify stage on BT site, but when I receive their verification code, I click on their link to verify, but it ALWAYS comes up with "ERROR - Confirmation code dosn't match our records".
Obviously the code is generated by them.
When you click the link, the code is already in the box - but it isn't accepted.
I have tried copy'n'paste the number, but to no avail.
I've e-mailed BT but it could be days or weeks b4 they get back - if they ever do.
I remember now, that I used to get this problem a couple of years ago when going through the same thing.
