I don't know why or how windowsLive would stop you from accessing your hotmail account... but, if yoou cannot get to hotmail.com or msn.com, then try bing.com . On the top of the bing screen you'll find a 'sign in' link. This sign-in is for all of the MSN services including hotmail.

If for some reason, you are unable to get to hotmail from any of these methods, I would download another browser, like Opera, Firefox, or Chrome...

I would also9 consider removing WindowsLive!

If you want to make a Microsoft email account, you'll have to sign up for something called a Windows Live ID. A Windows Live ID is your sign-in for all Microsoft online sites and services, and comes with an email account through Microsoft's own Hotmail.

You can sign up for one of these accounts for free at any time of the day or night through your own Web browser.

Open your Web browser.

Visit the Windows Live ID site (see the Link at Bottom )

Click "Sign up for an account."

Select the "No" option and then click "Continue."
This will make sure that you get a Microsoft email account alongside your Windows Live ID.

Fill out the form in your browser.
You need to provide a screen name for your email address and also provide as much personal information about yourself as you feel comfortable.

Once you've filled out the boxes, scroll all the way to the bottom of the page and click "I Accept." This will create your Microsoft email account which you will be automatically logged into.

https://accountservices.passport.net/reg.srf?bk=1245529554&cru=http://login.live.com/login.srf&sl=1&vv=650&lc=1033

Type a screen name in the "Windows Live ID" box and click "Check Availability" to see if the name is in use.

Choose the name carefully as this will be your email address.
Choose "live.com" in the drop-down menu next to the "Windows Live ID" box.

Fill Out the rest of the information on the sign-up page and click "I Accept" to complete the registration of your live.com email address.

Click "Mail" on your profile page to access your new live.com email account.

There is also an optional line where you can enter an alternate email address for Yahoo to send you password resetting instructions.

I dont know how to verify my email


Usually, when a website wants to verify your email account, they will send you an email with a link to click on or a code to enter somewhere on their website. If you did not receive this email, check your spam folder.
