hotmail not working with IE

Hi
Win XP sp 1

For some strange reason I can only sign into my hotmail using Opera browser. It's a good thing I had it installed because when IE kept asking me to re-type my password I got scared thinking that my email was hijacked, but then I tried opera and it worked Happy.

I can still use msn messenger but IE won't work.

I need IE for hotmail because not all the functionality is allowed when using Opera (seems like microsoft don't want us using Opera on their site).

Any help?

PS: the other microsoft-ish browsers don't work either (like MYIE2, maxthon, slimbrowser, firebox

Another person found that changes at hotmail required them to tweak their firewall settings. Have you?

I use zonealarm pro.
What changes must I make to it?
I only know that you either alllow a program or not. And IE is allowed. I have no expert rules either.

Thanks

I don't offer any ZA support. Try Zonelabs, the maker.
