Hotmail / Host file

  tonyx1302 17:24 26 Nov 2007

Is hotmail down at present ? I have been trying to connect for the last two hours without success only to be referred back to Windows Live troubleshooter which when I run, tells me I have an error (80048820) in Hosts File. I have checked with Google but didn't understand all the repair links.None gave a difinative solution.
How do I get in the Hosts File and what should I be looking for please?
I have checked with the MSN website which tells me that Hotmail is 'running and stable'.
Any help would be gratefully received

I have no problem accessing Hotmail.

You could try installing a new Hosts file click here

Thanks very much VoG. I did as you suggested and installed a new Hosts file and I am up and running again
