Hi There, I have just created a hotmail account.
I had to create the account on my nephew's pc as I was unable to sign in via hotmail or messenger on MY pc.
I am unable to connect to messenger or Hotmail accounts from MY OWN pc, if I sign in from another pc its fine.
If I TRY to sign in to Hotmail on MY pc I just get re-directed to a search engine, and if I try to sign in to Messenger on MY pc I get an error message telling me that the password and sign in name are incorrect, I know they are ok of course because I can sign in via another pc.
I have tried temporarily disabling my firewall and anti virus software but this does not correct the problem.
Any help you can give would be much appreciated.

Regards......Ted

Yes I have tried signing in to hotmail.com but as I say it will not work on MY pc, on another its fine.
My main problem though is that I cant sign in to Messenger.

Cheers......Ted

The statement "get redirected to a search engine" indicates it all may be due to spyware. Scanning for and removing spyware is a good idea anyway and it may solve the problem.

If you haven't already, dwnload, install, immediately update and then run Spybot and/or Ad-Aware. Read the help files to familiarize yourself with how they work. I recommend you use them both since each tends to find things the other misses. Let them clean up any spyware found.

Then, to be doubly sure, download and run CWShredder.
