I'm having some problems signing into my hotmail account. Every time I type in my user name and password, I get the usual 'The Page Cannot Be Displayed.' I'm not sure if this is a problem on my end or with the hotmail account itself. I have some important documents for school in there and I need to access them, well, very soon. Any help?

I'm running Windows XP SP2
AVG FREE Edition

Everything was fine a few days ago, this has just happened in the past 2 days or so.

Try clearing your browser's cache, history, cookies and other data.

The above will probably fix it. If not...read on


if that doesn't work, try using a different browser. I assume you are using IE as the error you described sounds like IE's generic error message. try downloading firefox or opera and using it. If you have access to a different computer, try that as well.

as of right now, 10:37am CDT, hotmail is working fine at my school using win xp sp2 and firefox browser

and as a fix against this happening again, get a different free email (yahoo, netscape or gmail) account and send your doc's to both of your accounts. this way if one craps on you, the other will be available. I preferr gmail over all of them for the reason that you get 2.5gigabyte of storage :cool:

the other day I had a issue with my time on my computer not being right and getting that problem you described. Set the time and date right if it is wrong and it should clear up. Just another idea

Well, everything is working again. I went to school and used a computer there to access my hotmail accounts and everything worked fine. Then, i used my own computer via the school wireless internet and was able to access the accounts. I think the problem was on the hotmail side of things not on my end. I'm gonna look into getting a new and more stable email account. Hotmail is in a transition of going to the Messenger Live protocol and i'm not really sure if I like it. Thanks for all your help - positive reps for you guys!

Yahoo! Mail and GMail are prolly the two best free e-mail providers on the net. They both give ample amount of space. Yahoo! gives 1 gig of space and GMail gives 2.5 gigs. I have had both accounts for years and have not had any problems with either of them. Just my 2 cents bro.
