Hotmail problem today!

I have a I yr old Gateway with W7 & Explorer 11. which have worked perfectly until today!
I can't get into my Hotmail no matter what I try. I rebooted 3 times. My DH has a computer in another room and he had no problem, so I tried logging into Hotmail from his computer and still won't allow me in. It hovers over 'waiting for Log in Live', then goes to "can't connect."
I am able to go everywhere else on line with no problem, just not into my Hotmail.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance Pat

Try a different browser .

And/or - clear Internet Explorer (Tools - Delete Browsing History - make sure all the boxes are checked). Note in doing this, if you regularly visit websites that the browser keeps your passwords for, you'll need to log in again. Restart IE and try again.

Now what happens?

Sometimes that happens. Not often. Usually DNS server with bad or old info. Slow to update.

. bunch of address's choices to load Hotmail
www.hotmail.com
www.live.com
www.outlook.com

might look in your recent activity for any odd things;
account.live.com

Here is a link that might be useful: OneDrive.Live.com

Thanks everyone!

After it not working for 8 hours, I finally was able to get into my Hotmail-no idea why, but concluded it might have been Outlook/Microsoft!

Thanks, Pat
