Outlook Express Express/ Hotmail problem

I'm running IE7, Outlook Express 6 on Windows XP (Home).
Since I downloaded IE7 the following problem has been occuring (although I'm not sure it's related Happy )
I try to download messages from hotmail and it keeps asking me for password.
When I click OK, the same pop up box comes up asking for it again and again.
When I click Cancel, a message comes up saying that access is denied and password is incorrect.
I can connect to Hotmail directly through and on other machines through OE.

I tried looking for a contact for hotmail/ OE/ Microsoft directly, but couldn't find any info/ contact detil so I thought I'd try here...

Any ideas??

any help greatfully recieved.
ta guys (and gals!)
