Hotmail is not working properly. I am running it from IE (not Chrome, as seems to be problematic for many people, but not my issue). Regardless of what function I try to do (delete messages, go to the "Sent" folder, go to earlier pages or sort by name) I keep getting kicked back to the most recent page of the in-box. Sometimes if I continue to persist in my efforts I finally get to where I'm going, but I have yet to get to anything older than page 2 of my inbox and can't get beyond page 1 of my "Sent" box. When trying to delete messages, my first effort will always fail but it usually deletes fine after the first failure. This problem started about four months ago and IS ONLY AN ISSUE ON MY LAPTOP. There is no problem with Hotmail on any other computer.

Do you have Windows XP, Vista or 7?

Josh: It's either Vista or 7, how can I tell. (Too long since anyone's asked or since I last had to check. I'm using an Acer computer that was purchased in 2009.)
It is OK, the steps are the same for Vista/7
