Have a look for a file called hosts (no file extension). In Windows 2000 and XP it would be in


or in earlier Windows


If you find the file, rename it to something else and restart your PC.

If you find no Hosts, this link will test if JavaScript is working: click here

And this link will test Java Sun, not needed by Hotmail, but it will test it anyway: click here

renamed file =no luck and tried the java script link but no luck, the page opens but its blank :(

That first link I posted may look blank, but at the top right hand corner you should see one line of writing if JavaScript is working like 'Your browser supports JavaScript version 1.3'

Sorry, should have read top left hand corner.
