Ask Dr. Dotnetsky - can't log out of windows live

Asked By dave smith on 22-Jan-09 08:35 AM
01/22/09  In the last week I have not been able to log out of windows live on my home computer w/vista home premium.     I log out and it takes me to the sign in screen. I enter alternate hotmail account information and screen says I am still logged in to the original account.  I've tried everything, open a new browser, type hotmail in address line, type msn in address line.  No matter what I get the same responce. This is really frustating. 

There is an entry here. Try it out. Seems to have solved a similar issue.

logout windows hotmail - dave smith replied to [)ia6l0 iii on 22-Jan-09 10:26 AM

It worked, then it wouldn't let me log out of alternate hotmail account. I have to enter user name twice to log in, blank window opens on login along with msn homepage.  Something has changed in my pc, all I do are windows updates and security scans.  This sucks.

Do you want to run a spybot (Spybot - Search and Destroy) and a Malware check (Malwarebytes.org) on your pc?

Some features of Hotmail may not work in some browsers (like Safari, Chrome). Which browser are you using?

Have you cleared cookies?
