I have just installed i.e.9 (after a long rigmarole) and 5 pages of instructions, I dont think this is related to the ie9 but now when I go into hotmail.com and try to open my hotmail emails I get jsut a plain blank page (after logging in with password) in the top left corner it just says

I can't help much as when I go to the Outlook.com page I'm already signed in. All I can suggest is try logging in from the MSN page, link, you'll see the Outlook.com icon near the weather icon in blue.

I just use www.hotmail.com as the url to open hotmail and click on the outlook icon at the top right to get into hotmail and this is what happens on both my hotmail email addresses, it doesnt seem to matter which way I got into hotmail I can use www.msn.nl or www.msn.de for the Dutch and German versions but still I am getting this strange blank page once logged into hotmail, but it comes straight to the inbox when using the chrome browser, so it seems strange its only happening on the i.e. browser. thnaks laptopdunce

If I use any of the following URL's, they all take me to the login page for Hotmail

www.live.com www.outlook.com www.hotmail.com www.hotmail.co.uk

Try them and see what happens and YES, I got the "unable to connect " message just now, so it's not you !

Sorry about duplication, it's this site, as you do not know if message sent or not sometimes when these unable to connect problems occur. Sorry also about lack of spacing between each URL.

OK, I can get into hotmail fine, I get in with www.msn.nl or www.hotmail.com or www.hotmail.co.uk or any permutation but its when I have actually logged in with my username and password that I get this white blank page with the strange text, this only happens on my Vista laptop that I have just upgraded to ie9 - after a nightmare kafka-esque runaround for over 7 days, see previous post. But when I log in on the vista laptop with chrome browser all is fine, thanks LAPTOPDUNCE

I don't and have never bothered with IE but have always used Firefox & Chrome which have never given any trouble.
