Hotmail Login

By Developr ·
I have a user who is running WinXP and frequently uses Hotmail as a backup when her office email goes down. After loading Ad-Aware SE she can no longer login to her Hotmail account from this system. After creating a new Hotmail account for a different user, we could not login that user to Hotmail on this system either. Login works fine on other systems. The login attempt results in a blank IE screen and what appears to be a hung processor.

Any ideas on the cause and recommended correction?

Although there are few certainties in the PC software world, I seriously doubt that problem is related to Ad-Aware SE. I have installed it on many systems and hve not seen behavior you describe.

Are you trying to access Hotmail via web page ( or via Outlook/OE? Is MSN (MS) Messenger installed and working? Passport accounts accessible?

Hotmail access is through web page (IE). I'll have to verify status of Messenger and Passport.

Does Ad-Aware quarantine show anything that looks like it should still be active?

But, most likely is a cookie, or ActiveX component that Hotmail needs that is being blocked.

Also check to see that IE is set to update the page at each visit, and try dumping the IE temp internet files.

Hotmail login Problem solved

by sipraomer In reply to Hotmail Login

I have been trying to solve the login problem of hotmail as well as yahoo. And accessing some sites like But failed. I cursed both the services alot as very important emails were to be received by me. I was depressed. Visited many forums no solution just people's crying. But on November 23rd 2008 I found the solution.
Congratulations. . Because by the grace of God I am a genius , Hahhaha, I have found a solution. I have recently installed K-Meleon Browser "", And volla I have successfully logged on my hotmail as well as my yahoo account and can easily open other sites where as couldn't login in firefox. Install this browser and you are good to go. There is no problem with hotmail and I was cursing the poor guys previously wrongly.

I want others to post this solution to as many sites as they can. Secondly i want to give a suggestion. solution based sites should not impose registration to users. Instead they should post the comments after moderation. And firefox should solve this problem as sson as problem otherwise people will choose other browsers. I love firefox but I hate this bug which even the latest version hasn't solved. Cheers and best regards. Omer the Great.

Install K-Meleon browser? Really? No. If it doesn't work in IE or Firefox that means it is something wrong with how your computer is configured. That doesn't mean you should download some random obscure browser. If it does work, great, fine. But seriously, fix it right, this sounds like a silly temp solution.
