    Looks like a prob with the computer............do the usual AV and virus /malware scans in SAFE MODE

    Where are these computers?.....in a school, library, cyber-cafe?

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

    as a prefix to what nihil said clear all temp folders, cookies, and the prefetch (if its XP). I have seen this in the past where you have to clear the temp files before hotmail lets it work again.

    what browser are you using? if its not IE try with IE. I have had problems with firefox and hotmail before as well as opera and hotmail, not in a while...but still something to check.

    Also seen this with IE and any IE based browsers, Firefox and the like could access it fine

    Happened on my friends 2k box as well. our companies web mail worked from her PC. Her schools web mail didn't and hotmail didn't. Shes on a cable modem from an ISP. ipconfig /renew sometimes returns error that DHCP server could not be reached. Then I restart and I get a lease. Once the lease indicated 192.168.1.1 gateway and 192.168.1.2 her IP address??? She has no router or NAT. She is connecting directly to the ISPs network.

    Hey Hey,

    I'm not sure if it's a javascript or an SSL problem but I've seen it happen from incorrect loading of the DLLs related to either of those tasks...

    I've attached a text file with a series of commands in it... You can rename it to .bat and run it and it should fix your problem... We've experienced many users with this problem in the past... this fixes the problem for about 95% of them.

    Peace,
    HT
