I have been having problems signing in to my hotmail account in my own computer,but I can sign in using another computer.
I had reinstall NSM HOTMAIL, but still can't sign in.( correct use name and correct password).
I wonder if I un-install the NSM hotmail and than re-install that may solve the problem,BUT I DON'T KNOW HOW TO UNINSTALL THE NSM. Can any one help?

Thank you.

If it's really NSM Hotmail then thrash your comp through spyware and adware cleaneruppers and If it's "MSN Hotmail" you mean then that's a puzzle too. MSN Messenger yes OK. Well Just get rid of it. Probably in Add/remove programs. MSN Hotmail may be a new MS thing I haven't heard about but I"d get rid of it anyway..

Maybe provide a few more details wouldn't hurt...........m

Hi Mark C,
Sorry, I mean MSN Hotmail. ( hotmail)
I have been trying and trying to sign in my hotmail account , but have trouble to sign in ( it said incorrect name or password ) As what I said I can sign in using another computer but not my own computer, that mean the use name and password I use is correct.
MSN Hotmail is not in ADD/REMOVE programs window.

Thank you.

i guess you could try another IM client. Like Trillian if they still do it.

You could try this program as a replacement for MSN Messenger and other messenger programs, I use it, there are a few bugs but it is quite good. It will give you a chance to see if your computer will allow you to connect using another application.

lol dunno what you mean..........hotmail is not in add/remove progs.........of course it aint......it's a web based email service NOT a program that's installed.........try this on your pc..........goto controlpanel/internet options/privacy/advanced and override automatic cookie handling and allow cooki9es for everything...........including sessionn cookies......also check that the date showing on your clock in the lower right of your screen is correct this is important

Oooops. So long since I had anything to do with junk-filled Hotmail didn't realise it was prefixed with MSN. Thought it may be a bit of junkware masquerading on the comp.

So to get back to the original. You simply can't sign into Hotmail on one particular machine.?

Make sure you are allowing cookies like drcspy says. And post back.....m

Not a fix - but. Abandon Hotmail Try Yahoo instead. (get yourself a new email addy.) :D

Perhaps they are referring to MSN Explorer?

When this is enabled it sets itself as the default app for Surfing and for email, It applies a horrendous MSN shell around Internet Explorer and refers email queries though Hotmail.

It is perhaps the single worse "bell and whistle " bundled in with XP, I delete the shortcuts to it on every install I do lest someone gets curious and clicks it.

To stop using it simply right click the taskbar,select properties,start menu,customise,then change the default email and internet options to programs of your choice.

Besides that, Hotmail is a big steaming pile of crap, There are far easier, better, less evil services run by other parties, though Yahoo is nearly as bad (no comp of mine is willingly allowed to visit any yahoo site....

Odd. Metla. I use Yahoo and get zero spam, zero intrusions, zero problems....m

Yeah, I just hate Yahoo, Strikes me as “Internet for housewives" which is probably insulting to housewives in general....muhahahahaha. (And I associate Yahoo with HP…ugh)

I just dislike the intrusiveness of the Yahoo browser plugins, toolbars, extra buttons, messenger, active-x controls, Browser helper objects, advertising etc etc...I fail to see why all those configurations and installs are necessary for what is in essence a bloated search engine....

Well all I use is the email facility. And I'm a lite user. An email a week from friend's and family. I'm not running a multinational with it. Suppose I'm a "net housewife" then. LOL..m

Read this entire thread again. It's not clear what you are trying to do. You can't uninstall MSN Hotmal coz it's a website not a program on your comp. I'm inclined to go back to my first post and think it's some crudware you're talking about..........HTH

Hi Mark C
What do you mean by crudware ?
Now, let me explain in this way so it may be easier to understand!
I am using MSN HOTMAIL as my email address ( for years) to communicate with people or friend. One day it sudenly denied me to access my hotmail account.I
was nott able to sign-in even use correct user name and password. So I thought if I can delete the MSN's setting in my computer then reinstall again that may solve the problem.( obviously that is not the case) That why I post this thread for help.
Thank you.

try an update of internet explorer. i have come across your problem & this was one fix. also try another browser - eg. firefox - it might work (another fix i've used).

I had tried the firefox browser to access hotmail but still can't sign-in.But it has no problem to sign-in if I use another computer. I am sure it must the setting went wrong in my computer.
Anyway I had reinstalled the whole thing (o/s) and every thing goes well. No problem to sign-in any more.
Thank you very much.

Hotmail is just a website, Its no more installed on your system then this forum is.

Seems your account went bung, thats to be expected with Hotmail, if you can't sign in then simply create a new one, someone probally hacked yours anyhow (lets hope they ain't sending porn to your rellies).

Hotmail is MS at its very worst.

have you tried controlpanel/internet options/privacy/advanced........overridde automatic cookie handling and tick to accept all including session cookies........also make suree your system date is correct in the clock at the lower right of your screen.........both cookies and system date are VERY important for this issue if you have cookies disabled and/or date incorrect you WONT be able to access hotmail.........and nope hotmail has NO 'settings' or 'installation' in any way whatsoever on your pc...........nothing at all.....it's just a website that you visit but you MUST have cookies enabled as i have described and you MUST have the correct date on your pc.......
