Please can anyone help.

A few days ago wanted to put data into my tree , on FLT, all I got was a welcome page, every option I try to, Open, Restore, did not work, it asked for my username, password, then it tried to connect using my old BTPAYG number and of course could not get connection.

I emailed the company, no reply, I emailed the company on the CD Rom, they suggested that I contact Gencircles, I have never shared my tree with anyone.
