Does this malady happen elsewhere? Does it do it with other browsers?
Have you updated your Hotmail account? I know awhile back they were promoting their next & newest whatever. I'm slow to upgrade to the next fantastic, must have version, & especially because Xp is down there on the list of desired OS's to write for.
Soon, it will be as poor as it was for ME to connect.
I have an IBM thinkpad laptop and windows xp security pack 3. I am using malwarebytes anti malware and avira antivirus. My hotmaill is not functioning properly I cannot access previous emails or write new emails. My computer takes about ten minutes to get to IE. At one point, there is a grey screen (has all the icons) before my regular screen appears. Windows takes foreveer to open.
All suggestions appreciated.
