The instructions are specific to the browser and OS you are using. Since you didn't specify, I will provide instructions for the Apple standard Safari browser on Snow Leopard (10.6). If you are using some other browser, such as FireFox, the instructions will be vaguely similar but not identical.
Under the Safari menu, open Preferences, then go to the Security tab. You will see a selection for "Accept cookies: Always, Never, Only from sites I visit." If "Only from sites I visit" (the preferred choice) doesn't make Hotmail happy, you will have to set it to "Always." Remember, you can always set it back later, and if certain websites still demand that you allow third-party advertising cookies, you may want to reassess whether you want to continue your relationship with those websites.

    When I go to Safari the security tab under preferences does not show this "accept cookies" ........ where else might I find it?

    Try the Privacy tab. If that doesn't work, try the other tabs until you find it.

My account has been blocked. What can I do for this?


Note: Hotmail has now changed to Outlook.com. You can refer to the following link for more details:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-IN/hotmail/home

Your Hotmail account may have been blocked for security reasons because Microsoft may have detected an usual activity in your account. To unblock the same, you will need to request Microsoft to send you a security code on the phone number associated with your Hotmail account. To know how to do this, you can refer to the following webpage:

I cant get locked in to www.hotmail.com since updating my AVG anti virus protection


Windows Live Hotmail normally loads without issue, but several problems on your computer can restrict access to your account.
Firewalls with high security sensitivity, malicious spyware and disabled cookies are three of the main reasons for blocked Hotmail accounts.
Hotmail also does not load if Microsoft blocks your account for spamlike activity.
This can happen if your account was compromised, or hacked.
Cookies

If cookies are disabled on your Internet browser, Hotmail cannot load.
Cookies store specific data about you that you have provided to a website, such as your name or address.
To turn on cookies in Internet Explorer, click "Tools" and "Internet Options."
Click "Privacy." Move the slider from "Block All Cookies" to "Medium."
This security level blocks advertising cookies but enables the cookies that allow you to access your Hotmail.
To enable Firefox cookies, click "Tools," "Options" and "Privacy."
Click "Use Custom Settings for History."
Enable cookies to view your Hotmail messages.

Check for Spyware
Spyware is a type of malicious software that steals your personal information or disables functions of your computer.
Spyware on your computer may block access to your Hotmail.
Run an anti-spyware or anti-virus program, such as Norton, AVG or Avira.
If you have a spyware or virus infection on your computer, these programs find and destroy it.
Some malware affects the "hosts" file on your computer.
Find and open the file "C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\hosts" in Notepad.
Look for "passport.com" or "hotmail.com."

If you see either, malware has possibly infected the file.
Change the IP address affiliated with the file name to eliminate the problem.


Blocked Accounts Hotmail blocks accounts when it detects spamlike behavior from them.
For example, if hundreds of advertisements are sent from your account in just a few minutes, Hotmail views this as spam and blocks your account.
If you are not sending spamlike emails or instant messages, someone may have guessed your password and accessed your account.
If Hotmail blocks your account, you have the option to enter your cellphone number as verification that you are the true account owner.
When you enter your number, Microsoft sends a text message to that phone number.
Retrieve the verification code from the text message and enter it on the Sign-In page.
When you access your account, change the password immediately.

Other Options

Your firewall may block access to Hotmail or cause emails to not load.
To determine if the firewall is the problem, disable it temporarily and try to access your mail. Firewall settings are sometimes set too high.
Lower the security sensitivity before you attempt to log in to Hotmail.
If you notice other websites not loading, reset your router.
This solves many connection issues.
Check the clock on your computer.
An inaccurate clock may block you from loading Hotmail.
To ensure your clock's accuracy, click the clock in the bottom-right corner of the task bar.
Click "Date and Time" and "Internet Time."
Click "Change Settings."
Click the check box next to "Synchronize With an Internet Time Server."
Click "OK."

My hotmail account is blocked ,how can I unblock it?


Follow the instructions appear on your hotmail account blocking message. You can unlock it using your Alternate Email address or by answering your security question or by using your mobile number if you already added it to your account. If you do not have access to these, contact hotmail support for unblocking, they will do some confirmation and your account will be unblocked.

My hotmail email is block how to unblock


Microsoft will sometimes block your Windows Live Hotmail account if the company suspects you have a compromised or hacked account or if you have incorrectly entered your password multiple times when logging in. If Microsoft has blocked your Hotmail account, you can unblock your account by resetting your password.

1.Open a Web browser, and navigate to account.live.com/password/reset.
2.Enter your Windows Live ID and the security verification code and click the "Next" button.
3.Select the "Security Question" option.
4.Answer the security question you created when you signed up for your Hotmail account.
5.Enter and confirm the new password you want to use to access your Hotmail account and click the "Continue" button.
6.Go to the Hotmail homepage.
7.Enter your Windows Live Hotmail address and password and click the "Sign In" button to open your Hotmail account. You have now unblocked your Hotmail account.

I hope the step helps you. Thanks.
