When you click your favourite button.

Have a look at the Address Bar. It is just possible that the address has become corrupted.

If so. Type in Hotmail and hit GO.

What operating system are you using?

Hi West Sussex Blues Girl,

have you tried setting up another hotmail account?

If you are able to do this it would at least show your PC is able to access the hotmail site.

My wife signed up to Hotmail last week and it worked for 2 days. Now for the last 5 days all she gets is the following message:-

Have never been near Windows ME so it maybe be different.

Start > Settings > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs > Select Microsoft Internet Explorer > Click "Remove"...

Thn choose the "Repair" Option...

Click "ok"...

It wont remove IE from your system it will just repair it if its damaged.

My hot mail is still not working,have tried all suggestings put to me,but its still not working.My hot mail account still says page cannot be displayed,have tried everything.Has any one got any other advice or wise its a no go. thanking you all xx

Hi, It is possible if you have Norton systemworks that a recent update is preventing your access. Have you tried your earliest restore point?. Cheers, Bill
