Logging on to popular sites

A friend is unable to log on to 2 sites, eBay and Hotmail, it just won't accept his username/password. His girlfriend can't log on either so it's a problem with his laptop.
He's upgraded to IE7 (I didn't tell him to do that!!) to help and also reduced his security settings to low but nothing.
He also ran a virus check but came back negative.
Any ideas?
Cheers,
G.
