Question Microsoft i.e 6

Please help. This may be something simple but it has puzzled myself and a few others. using Microsoft internet explore 6, the one that comes with xp, I can not login into any .net passport sites like hotmail from my home pc. I can however login with the same user name and password from another pc even using remote desktop. I have reset all the security settings in the browser to default, low, medium, medium high, high, custom etc trying to get it to work. I also have trouble logging into secure applications on websites like online purchasing i.e I can't proceed to checkout, ha. there are some sites and logins that work fine while others do not work at all I keep getting that page not available notification. I have the same problem in Netscape 6 is there any help for me short of reloading my os?

Thanks for the reply. I currently have the browser set to accept all cookies and I’m still unable to sign in.
It wasn’t always this way it started rather suddenly about two weeks ago.

ha, ha, nice.
I have all the new updates etc. I scan for new ones obsessively. My security settings are currently on medium, though I have tried them all recently.
