off topic - Hotmail security RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hello,

    I am certain that someone is able to view my hotmail messages once I have signed out.  I typically sign out and ensure that neither box is ticked in terms of saving my login info on the computer.  When I later sign back in, the 'save' box is typically checked.  In addition, once logged into hotmail, the page loads once and then I can see another download quickly taking place when viewing the http://address.  Finally, I seem to be unable to disconnect windows live and hotmail.  (In other words I do not want to use the additional services assoc. with the msn page, I only want to use hotmail.)  The final item to note is that i also seem to have a second 'frame' around the entire page.

    Please advise, many thanks,
