    When I logged in to my hotmail (live mail) tonight I noticed a window had popped up stating that I should refresh my browser after logging in from another computer for security reasons. I clicked on my mail - nothing happened. I clicked on some of the folders and could not open them. Finally,
    I clicked on my Profile and then on Mail and I could open them. Nothing else
    seemed out of the ordinary. I have had this email address for several years
    and have never had a problem like this. Also, I had not accessed it from
    another computer. It was fine last night which was the last time I was in it.

    So my question is: Did someone get into it from another computer and if they did how would I know?? I do have a firewall activated.

    Thank you.:)

    Hi Ladybug,

    This sounds very suspicious to me.

    I recommend that you change your Hotmail password and security questions/answers immediately.
