I have been running Mike Singers widget for years and the firefox widget for a while, both of them stopped working yesterday for some reason, Mike thinks it maybe I need to agree to something on the adsense account. I did agree to the new terms months ago (after adding the web beacons bit) has anyone else had this issue? all I get from his software is
The time changes obviousley but nothing else, I have removed then re-installed, my other pc gets the same result, however, I can still login no problem and there's no notifications waiting for me.

I still get that migrate-login page, could that be the issue, although I did jump through the migrate hoops when first instroduced, if I go to
google.com/adsense it defaults to the migrate-login bits n bobs, asks if I am one of the following, which I am and states I have already setup my one account fits all, has anyone experienced this issue?

I didn't understand whether you updated your account or not. GOogle will require all publishers to update soon (you can go to the official adsense blog, and see the message there on top).
For me at least, those widgets stopped working when I updated me account. I switched to a different free tool (The Adsense Toolbar) which works great.

As far as I know I have updated everything as requested, when it was requested, I tried the toolbar you mentioned yesterday but it kept saying incorrect user/password? somethings not right.
I also reset the password yesterday after emailing G still nothing works, although I can login no problem AND there's nothing waiting for my attention when logged in, it's a mystery to me

This is getting a real ball ache now, I just tried accessing adsense with my laptop (it doesnt get swithced on often) NOW using my login details for adsense on the laptop sends me through the loop of:
Are you one of the following ... YES
If so you ALREADY have ..... I KNOW
Return to AdSense ..... BOING back to the first page
So my login works on one machine but not on the other, #*$! totally at a loss now.
Is anyone else STILL getting the migrate 1 and 2 pages loop, it can't just be me, can it?

Success I think
After reading the many confusing help pages I found one saying you can't use the same google account login for adsense, so, I changed the email address for the account and now the widgets work.
The funny thing is I am still using the same email address for ALL accounts, so to sum it up it looks like all I needed to do was change my email address.
Which means, I still only have ONE account!

Good to hear it works. I couldn't really understand everything you went through ;-)
