    I suspect that there's some spyware on your computer that is redirecting to another search engine website when you try to sign in to hotmail. Have you tried scanning your computer with spybot and ad-aware?

    Ok, I have previously had friends ask me to secure their computer from Adware and sypware before and this is what I usually do and it tends to be very effective.

    First, after downloading the latest updates, I would run the latest version of Ad-Aware I can get my hands on and perform a full system scan. I would then run a search in spybot search and destroy after aqcuiring the latest updates, removing any nasties. I would imunize my system using the imunize feature in spybot search and destroy.

    I would then install Spyware Blaster and block every nasty I can to prevent anything being downloaded again. I would delete all tempory history, all cookies and all other tempory files. Maybe install and run Fast Clean by Eshinesoft.
