    not sure if this is an xp or ie problem,

    for some reason my ie browser will not allow me to go to my "msn" or "hotmail" sites to retrieve mail. i can however go anywhere else with no probs. ie automatically puts "www.hotmail.com" into the google search engine.

    any ideas?

    thanks

    What version of IE?

    Show hidden files in Folder Options. Then, post the contents of your C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\Etc\hosts file. It will open in Notepad.

    Try typing this in your address box in IE and see where it gets you:
