Default Hotmail Sign In Page

I have tried to get onto the sign in page and for some reason it won't appear. All I get is a blank page. Is something wrong with my computer or is hotmail down?

Thanks for any input!!!

I also have the same identical problem. It is indeed strange that when I log into Hotmail from my work computer, it works. I use Comcast.net as my home provider. Is there a compatiblity issue with Comcast - this just occurred last evening.

Has Hotmail done an update that only makes the system compatible with IE7? I think I have IE6 at home.

I have Internet Explorer 7 so that's not it.
Hmmmm - would it be possible for someone to email the hotmail people to ask what the problem is - as I can't get on at home and I don't have a work computer.

Ok so far I have deleted cookies, deleted temp files, done a defrag, got the mozilla firefox, ran a virus scan, reset my security and privacy to defaults, and I already have internet explorer 7. The sign in page still hasn't come on.

Reinstalling Internet Explorer can help with some issues related to that web browser.

Here is the link to download internet explorer 7.

If you have a problem from both web browsers is it possible that spyware has changed your hosts file?

The step about downloading and installing Spybot S&D or StopZilla can help fix the problem if that is the issue.

Is it possible for you to take a screen shot and post it?

Do you see any error messages at the bottom of your web browser?

Another member had a similar blank page / redirect problem and fixed it by reinstalling their BitDefender security software.

Do you have a similar application installed that be be disabled for a few minutes or reinstalled?

Do you have any entries in your hosts file besides localhost?

If you see any entries for hotmail that may be a sign that some spyware has modified your computer.

The hosts file is located in this folder: C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc.

After logging into Hotmail and landing at the blank page, what happens if you force refresh the page?

To force a refresh hold down the control key and while holding it down hit the F5 key.

One page is:

2F%2mail.live.com%2Fdefault.aspx%3Fn%3D116864997&i d=64855

Then the next page is this:
Line:7

Error: 'g_oTemplate.ShowWLHeader'is null or not an object
Code: 0
URL: http://login.live.com/login.srf?

Try going to https://login.live.com to login to Hotmail.

If that does not work, try this (is it possible you just installed IE8 Beta?)

Have you tried using LocalMachine_LockDown?
  • Open Internet Explorer
  • Go to the Tools menu and select Internet Options
  • Go to the Advanced tab
  • Scroll down to the Security section
  • Uncheck Allow active content to run in files on My Computer
  • Close ALL internet explorer windows.
  • Restart Internet Explorer

Hi Heather,

I'm glad we got it figured out!

The https link is an easy step to try so I moved it up to #1 on the troubleshooting checklist!

If it's not too much trouble please let your friends know about this site too.
