2 strange Hotmail problems

  Chris Webster 21:37 11 Dec 2005

Hi all,
I've had my hotmail account for years now without any problems, up until now.

No 1, I cannot empty my 'trash can', when I click on empty I just get the following message 'An error has occurred. Click here to resolve the issue.' I click where it says and nothing happens.

No 2, I thought I'd look in the help files for any clues to the above problem but when I click on 'help' the help section appears but It's NOT in English anymore.

Any ideas please.

Cheers, Chris.

Thanks for that.

Any ideas on how to get the 'help' section to appear in English?

Cheers, Chris.

Any ideas on how to get the 'help' section to appear in English or is this a glitch too?

Has anyone elses help section changed FROM English?

Cheers, Chris.

"Has anyone elses help section changed FROM English" - yes, yesterday it seemed to be in Spanish or portugese and today it seems to be in czech or finnish or swedish (or anything else for all the sense it makes to me!).

I guess as it seems to change language on a daily basis it will soon come round to english again!

My daughter had the same trouble earlier,only the Trash Can folder was missing and so were all the emails from her Inbox.She restarted PC and I went for a nosey thru her Folders in Hotmail and found her missing Inbox mails had moved to Trash Can(which had returned)I didn't take any notice of the Help files so no ideas as to what language their going to be in.I'm puzzled as to how restarting her PC might fix a Web based mail system,but it did.
