every time I make my hot mail to people I know, it changes back after I have closed it, to everybody. How can I stop three big computer retailers sending me advertising that I don't want.

Im unsure what you are trying to explain


How can I stop three big computer retailers sending me advertising that I don't want.

If you have subscribed to receive communication from these companies then simply Unsubscribe from their mailing lists

I have no idea what your first sentence means, but to cure the second problem of "big computer retailers sending me advertising that I don't want", set up a filter in Hotmail to do that. Click 'Options' then the 'Mail' button on the left of the screen, choose either the 'Junk E-mail Protection' option, or the 'Custom Filter' option.

Don't Unsubscribe from their mailing lists, that will only serve to prove that your email address is active.

I have never subscribed to these companies, I don't know how they got my address, and I prefer to accept Es from people I know, not every body

If they are SPAM messages I totally agree.
But for legitimate mail that you have signed up for then the unsubscribe option can be used.

They GOT your address in the same way as they will GIVE your address, by you clicking on some email to either 'unsubscribe' or stop further emails, it just proves your address is active and it's sold on. Use the filter options I described.
