I am having trouble logging in to Hotmail and this problem is manifested in both IE and firefox which I have recently just installed - so have eliminated at a pure IE based problem. It was working fine up until a few days ago. I use XP pro SP2 and IE 6 SP2 patched to latest.
When I enter username/password at www.hotmail.com I get the message 'The page cannot be displayed' - though it is a valid account which I have been using for years.
I have run spybot and HijackThis and fixed any problems through them and also deleted cookies, temp internet files and history.
I also installed Firefox to see if this was a browser related issue but the same problem occurs.
Here is a brief summary of actions ..
have tried the commands below as suggested elsewhere
but the same result as before. I go to www.hotmail.com and type in the user/password of my account which then gets redirected to the following URL ...
https://loginnet.passport.com/ppsec....... [NOTE: this is not the complete URL]
and after about 1 minute it finally ends up at
http://www.hotmail.msn.com/cgi-bin/sbox?did=1&t=.....[NOTE: not complete URL]
with 'The page cannot be displayed message' ...
Note that this seems to be a localised hotmail issue as my yahoo email account is still accessible.
Does anyone have courses of actions that I should try to remedy this problem?
