Problems with Hotmail, and MSN features...

Hey folks. For some reason when I try to go to hotmail...the page comes up blank.
I then have to go and delete my cookies....go back to hotmail...then type in my e-mail address and password. The page comes up blank AGAIN...then I go to hotmail a third time, and voila...I'm in. This is a HUGE pain...and I'm not sure why it happens everytime.

Aside from this, and I am sure this stems from the same problem. When I am using MSN, and try to use a feature...such as editing my profile...I get a completely blank page...with "https://loginnet.pas...th.srf?lc=1033" in the address bar.

When I try to look at someones photo's in their contact card...I also get a blank page yet again...with "https://loginnet.pas...th.srf?lc=1033" in the address bar. I am assuming this is a login page for msn...but I have it set up so I should not have to log in to access any other pages.

I saw someone else had a thread with this same problem. I was wondering if you guys helped him to solve it. If you can help, I'll gladly go through the process of creating a log etc. I just don't want to waste your time, or mine if this problem can't be fixed using the hijack this method.

Please let me know...thanks very much for your time.

hey bud, how goes it?! No, I'm not using FireFox. I use IE 6.0
I have the active-X settings just as you suggested. So that's not the problem.
I've heard of this problem before, and seems to me the things all of those people had in common that I noticed...all used IE 6.0, had Norton Internet Security Professional, and Windows XP. Not sure if it's a conflict of sorts between these programs!? Any other suggestions!? Thanks for your time and help.

P.S. did you know I was military!?
