    Exclamation Cannot access Hotmail with IE

    When trying to access Hotmail account with IE 6 sp2,it seemed to accept my login,but just would not bring me to my Inbox.I upgraded to IE 7,but with same results.Funny thing is that I can access my Gmail and Yahoo accounts.Anyway,I proceeded to download and install Firefox,and this is where it gets serious,as I am now able to access my Hotmail account with Firefox.Now I have nothing against Firefox,but since I pride myself on having a 100% clean machine(no virii,spyware,trojans or malware of any kind!),I am just concerned that there is some kind of malware that I just can't seem to locate.If there is anone out there that thinks they have the solution,please share it with me.Thanks.

    Clear the cache. Go to the "Control Panel" then "Internet Options"
    and delete all the cookies, files and history. Or, better yet, download
    and run Ccleaner.

    Just a few thoughts:

    1. Try an interactive scanner like "Housecall"
    2. Check your IE settings for handling of scripts & security settings
    3. What happens if you log in as administrator?
    4. How far into Hotmail do you seem to get?
    5. Any clues in the event logs?

    Try adding it to trusted sites too. Usually if it's a script handling issue, that will resolve it very quickly, depending on your settings for that zone of course.

    You might want to try and put an "s" in front of http:\\. Worked for me with gmail. Just a thought.

    I had a very similar problem a few days ago (see: http://antionline.com/showthread.php?t=275923) which has resolved now. I tried using a different account in my XP Pro and that led to the possibility of a corrupted profile, as well as other problems.

    It could be a coincidence, but I just wonder if there is a problem at hotmail's "end".
