Default Windows Hotmail / Live does not load

I have some old Windows 98 Second Edition PCs that cannot access hotmail
through WIndows Live. The IE status bar says errors on the page and the
screen stays blank.

I am not too familiar with Windows Live - am I correct in assuming it is the
new version of Hotmail and will it work with Windows 98?

Yea, I started having that problem a few months ago.

Actually, I tried it just now - and it works.

Strange.

What I did to get around the problem was to go he

http://www.msn.com/

And then click on the hotmail link near the upper left corner.

Default Windows Hotmail / Live does not load

a back door via http;//my.msn.com worked up to today to get to my account on
my lovely 8 year old laptop running 98 sE but I seem to be completely up the
creek now. Having been advised that I need to upgrade my browserI carried on
anyway (in spite of the warning that it might not work properly). Guess what?
It doesn't work properly. I can see the headers of the emails but can't open
a single one.
I haven't bought a new peice of hard or software for seven years. I wonder
why microsoft don't seem to want to help me?

This is actually for my parents. They have an older gateway running 98 and
dial-up (I nod my head every time I visit). They get to the inbox. When
they click a message hotmail acts like it wants to display but nothing
happens.

I verified this by logging into my hotmail account with the same response.
I know my account works because I had accessed it just the day before.

My parents commented that the change happened only about 2 to 3 weeks ago.

Using an older version of IE like me? (5.50.4807.2300)
Doesn't work here, either.
I installed Firefox 1.5.0.12 and Opera 9.52, and they both work just fine.
I assume MS "fixed" the Hotmail pages to try to force everyone to "upgrade".

So this is odd, older versions of IE are not working so it is nothing to do
with IE7. Hotmail does work on web brosers other than IE.

Still wondering what could have changed in the last couple weeks.
