Usually when I go to www.msn.com, I can just click ,"hotmail", and again, click on my user name on the next page, and be taken right to my hotmail inbox.
What really happens now, is that when I try to log in, after the next page, the address bar fills up to green, and the pages "blinks" several times, until finally a message appears after a RED X, :

You should try installing Firefox after which you should test to see if the issue persists.

hi, try this might help ,open ie 8 .go to tools /internet option/advanced / and down the bottom ,reset ie to default settings ,

..Still having problems. I just found out that:

When I go to control panel>default programs>set program access and computer defaults,(after clicking OK to the permission box), a vain attempt is made to set Internet Explorer from Custom to Microsoft. I just happen to come back to this setting again.
i find that the radio button that was selected to Microsoft goes back to the previous selection of Custom. Please help in this matter.

Thank You,

It shouldn't be your browser you can access other account and I do just fine using firefox. I can't suggest what was happened.

Many Hotmail accounts are being hijacked with sales letters. The are written casually and sent to everyone in the Address Book. It was over six months ago and I am being asked why I would suggest something like this. A little embarrassing

It was about six months ago or more that it first hit me. Droves of sales offers from China sent to everyone as if they were written by me. Password changes didn't help matters. Microsoft seemed to take a long time with this issue.

I just got an e-mail from my ex-husband's mom thanking me for the cell phone deal, but she wasn't interested. Not again! Two of them bounced from two old addresses I once had saved that bounced back to me.

Done with Hotmal!

its not just Hotmail ,what ever one you use will eventually do the same thing .
one should have a good legit email address from there ISP [internet service provider ] and use that for personal email , using outlook expres or windows live mail , and have a hotmail acct to used for signing up to help forums nad any other website that ask for one a email address.and then you just have to manage you junk e-mail ,have hotmail set up more secure so as to only recieve mail from people in you address book and such ,good luck
i use windows live mail and 4 email address 2 ISP and 2 hotmail ones .see image

I have the same problem except I reinstalled everything; cleared the cache. I can get hotmail but cannot log in; says my password or email is incorrect.

I can use IE without Addons and it works. I can use firefox and chrome without problem.

I set my default browser to Firefox and now can link from MSN to Firefox and then use hotmail from there.

Any suggestion to fix the IE issue? /tks

Thanks..Upon many days of review, the problem was alliviated by the act of reseting my Acer laptop to factory settings by pressing a certain function key during the reboot process.
