A side effect of changes to hotmail has a lot of Zonealarm users complaining like you. But you didn't note Zonealarm. Ask Zonelabs for a fix.
i cant seem to connect to hotmail.com and webshots.com anymore. i expereinced this e few days after using Spybot Search & Destroy(not sure wether that it is the real cause of problem). whenever i enter www.hotmail.com or www.webshots.com the connection wouldnt response but it will if i typed in other websites. could it be the cause of SpyBSandDestroy because it blocks some URL and btw, could the association of MSN messenger to hotmail and Webshots Desktop program to webshots.com be the cause. please help me
