Check your hosts-file for any redirection of www.hotmail.com.
The location of this file is OS-dependent, so better find it with it Explorer. Simply search for a file named hosts and open in with Notepad if found; then try to find hotmail. If found, delete the whole line, and save the file as "hosts" (with quotes!).

Also, try the effect of typing 207.68.172.239 in the address bar of your browser (IE?). That's another way to write wwww.hotmail.com. Post back if necessary!

Hope this helps.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
