Hotmail issues

2 questions

1. When I go to the hotmail login page, there is a text box to enter my user name. If I click on the empty text box, I get a popup list of usernames I have entered before.  The list contains names I errorneously entered, e.g. if my user name is elmer and one time I typed in elmo, now elmo is there.  How do I get rid of elmo?

2. In the last couple weeks, I get the following message in when logging into my hotmail account:

There is a problem with the site's security certificate.  The security certificate has expired and is not yet valid.
Do you wish to continue?

I click yes and proceed as normal

I look at the certificate properties and the date is valid.

Running Windows 2000.  IE5.
I am the only user of the PC.

For the certificate part just go to (I have IE 6 here) content  |  certificates  and just remove the current hotmail cert then when you go go log back in it should replace w/ current cert.

ok #1 is a done deal.

#2.  I don't see a hotmail certificate

In Tools | Internet Options | Content | Certificates...
there are 4 tabs: Personal, Other People, Intermediate Certification Authorities, Trusted Root Certification Authorities.

Personal and Other People are empty.  Intermediate Certification Authorities doesn't contain anything pertinent.  Trusted Root Certification Authorities doesn't contain Hotmail anything.  It does have "Microsoft Authenticode(tm) Root Authority" and "Microsoft Root Authority"  but I doubt that these are related to what I need.

What next?
