Hi, it's been about 2 maybe 3 days now and I can't seem to access my hotmail inbox for some reason. Before this everything was fine. I was able to check my hotmail in Internet Explorer with no problems. For the past 2-3 days I been trying numerous ways to access my hotmail inbox.

I go to the hotmail website. That works fine. I type in my email and password and click login. It takes a while, then the page doesn't load and says

" The page cannot be displayed
The page you are looking for is currently unavailable. The Web site might be experiencing technical difficulties, or you may need to adjust your browser settings. "

I made sure I checked settings for SSL 2.0, SSL 3.0, TLS 1.0.

I can connect to the internet fine, and I am able to browse other sites. I don't think I changed my internet settings so I don't know what is going on.

So I tried downloading netscape and seeing if that would work. Netscape also won't load my hotmail inbox page. It takes a while then it cannot find the server. My MSN Messenger 7.5 works fine. I can login there fine. But when I click to check my email from there the page still won't load. Any ideas?

allstarplaya,
Start -> Run.
Type: services.msc
Press <enter>

Check whether the StartupType of HTTP SSL service is Manual.

Check your Hosts file from here and copy and paste all the writing please :

go to:

start - Run- then type Type :

Windows XP = C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC

(if you have windows xp )

Windows 2K = C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC

(If You Have Windows 2K)


Win 98\ME = C:\WINDOWS


(if you have windows 98)

Hi, I followed your instructions and it brought me to this directory

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC

There are six files there. The files are hosts, hosts.msn, lmhosts, networks, protocol, and services. What type of program do I use to open these files and which file do I post the writing from? I am guessing I use notepad but not sure.

Hi thanx for your help :)

This is what was in the host file:

# Copyright © 1993-1999 Microsoft Corp.
#
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
#
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
#
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
#
# For example:
#
# 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server
# 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host

127.0.0.1 localhost

Hi, I tried installing Firefox and that still didn't help. I went to hotmail and tried to login. The operation keeps timing out just like in netscape. Any ideas? :tazz:

Siga....this is allstarplaya's thread. The advice being given is for the thread starter, not for you. One of our board rules is that we ask you not to post your problem in someone else's topic. Otherwise, it gets too confusing for everyone.
Please start your OWN topic, describing the problem, and someone will be happy to help you. :tazz:
