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,

-Viet

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
