Sheesh, have another problem
I can sign in to hotmail, and view it, but I cant actually use it
bottom left corner shows a yellow exclamation mark, and "error on page"
I have tried everything I know
I did clean disk, disk defrag, delete history, cookies
ran anti virus
looked up on the internet for a solution

can anyone suggest what I should do?

I have windows xp home editon, Internet Explorer 8, 128 bit

btw, when I try and use some sites it says Internet explorer is not the default browser, although I have "if its not advise me" checked in the internet options, and the button that you can usually click to "set as default" is there but not useable? :)

NOTE: I downloaded Google Chrome Browser today to see if Hotmail had an issue in IT.......it doesnt, it works just fine with windows live mail
what is the problem with IE 8?

I tried all of the above
the only one that worked was resetting Internet explorer
I was sure I HAD done that in my travels of trying to fix it
guess I missed that
