Hi,

Please try this: click here to optimize internet explorer. Specifically try the following first:

Internet Explorer 7

  1. Open Internet Explorer 7.
  2. Click Tools, and then click Delete Browsing History.
  3. In Delete Browsing History, click Delete All.
  4. Click to select the Also delete files and settings stored by add-ons check box, and then click OK.

Internet Explorer 8

  1. Open Internet Explorer 8.
  2. Click Safety, and then click Delete Browsing History.
  3. In Delete Browsing History area, click Delete.

 


 

If there is still issue, please download and install the latest Internet Explorer:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/internet-explorer/worldwide-sites.aspx

Whether it works or not, I suggest to download and install Firefox browser: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/. Then open Firefox and go to hotmail.com in Firefox and check. Firefox is faster and more reliable. You can use Firefox to go to any website.

 

Thanks,
