Unable to access Hotmail on PC with XP Home

  the mole 12:42 14 Jul 2004

I am unable to access my Hotmail account on my friends PC where I occassionally stay. I can get to the hotmail website but when I try to sign on it gives the message "This page is unavailable" yet I can access it from other PCs running XP.

I have been through MS Knowledge Base Article 322610 but still unable to access Hotmail account.

Can anyone help please ASAP

I am not very knowledgeable on such things but it sounds plausible.

Anyway it will cause the problem to bump up the list.

We tried disabling the firewall but it didn't help at all. I thought it might be some cookie blocker/manager or perhaps cookie restriction.
How can I check if there is some form of blocker please?

Some organizations block hotmail access if it is work PC.

When a problem has been solved.

It is helpful to others, who may have had a similar problem. To tell us what it was that you did to solve the problem.

That is, apart from ticking the box.
