    Just opened new hotmail account because I can't sign out of original account.
    When I clicked on welcome email to open it, MacProtector scam page hijacked me. Same thing happened yesterday when I was reading emails in original account and again when I clicked Not Junk while going through junk mail.
    How can I stop this? How can I notify Hotmail that their links are poisoned?
    I have cleared cache, cookies, history and have successfully followed all steps to remove MacProtector from my computer at {broken link}.
    Frankly, I'm a little afraid to go near hotmail again.
