O.P. Hotmail gone haywire?
My screen shot. Hope this bears no relation to me clicking on you are blocked.com a few nights ago. What is the problem and how can I solve it? Must I delete the email account? How about my msn account?

(oh I cant paste my screen shot here! How do I do it?)

Let me try describing it. The tabs and windows are no longer contained in their proper places. I have the whole stuff, from inbox, compose new msg, to multiple selected contacts in one page. Is this a spyware in action?

Thanks!

Erm, it sounds like it hasn't loaded everything.

Press Ctrl + f5 and it should fix it. :)

If you put your username and password on that site, change your password immediately.

Dont rush to conclusions, it may just be as nathan said, not everything was loaded form the cache correctly

I no that. I'm just saying.. if he did enter his email and password on that site, he should change his pass, right?

correct, if a site has your password, it doesn't matter whether that's the cause of the error or not, you should still change it straight away

Azure, change your password if you have given it to an untrusted website, and also your secret question.

Concerning your Hotmail experience, Napbree is probably correct that the page was just incompletely loaded. There may also have been some error at Hotmail that is fixed now, so check it again (change your password and secret question while you're there).

To post a screenshot:
  1. Press the print screen key to copy the current screen to the Windows clipboard.
  2. Paste the screenshot into Paint
  3. Save the screenshot from paint as a PNG format file
  4. Use the attachment feature of our forum and upload the file you just saved

It works!!! I pressed Ctrl+F5 and my hotmail is back to normal!

Amazing, as I did try to refresh the page (what is the difference by pressing Ctrl?) and even opened hotmail with another web browser, Mozilla, all to no avail.

Ohh hope that darn website didnt do anything dangerous to my computer and MSN. I dont even dare to sign in to MSN anymore. :(

But thanks people!! :D

F5 just reloads the page from your cache.  Ctrl+F5 forces your browser to re-download the page

Those website normally don't do anything too malicious.  Just change your password and then you can use MSN just fine

Ctrl + F5 in Internet Explorer is a hard refresh. In a herd refresh, the current webpage, and all associated items are redownloaded and then processed. In a normal refresh, the current page is redownloaded, but associated items (eg images, stylesheets, scripts) mey be just loaded from cache again.
