We have received many calls concerning the Login button on the Ozone Login page not working in Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and/or Google Chrome.
We have found one thing in common on the computers with this issue. Malware!
One way to test your PC to see if malware is causing links not to work or other problems, is to try using Internet Explorer (No add-ons.)
Click on your Start button or the round Windows button at the bottom left side of your screen, then click on All Programs.
Scroll up to Accessories and click to view all of the programs and folders inside the Accessories folder.
Scroll down and click on the System Tools folder.
Click on Internet Explorer (No Add-ons).
Type www.owens.edu into the address bar and press Enter on your keyboard to go to the Owens website. Image below shows Internet Explorer (No Add-ons).
Click the LOG IN button at the top right of the page.
Enter your username and password and click on the Login button. If the Login buttons works and you receive a username or password error, please call the IT Help Desk at 567-661-7120. You should run a malware removal program on your computer. You will need to continue to use Internet Explorer (NO Add-ons) until you have the malware removed.
If you are using Internet Explorer (NO Add-ons) and the Login button still does not work, you should run a malware removal program on your computer.
Try installing Mozilla Firefox from www.mozilla.org by clicking the Free Download link and following the installation wizard.

If you are unable to remove malware and find links such as the Login link to get into your Ozone account does not work, we recommend that you have your computer professionally serviced by a computer repair shop. Another indicator that you may have malware installed is that you may be seeing a lot of pop-ups when you browse the web.
