I am using Internet Explorer 8, and every time I try to connect to Hotmail, I get an error like:

Oops! Internet Explorer could not find www.hotmail.com

I can connect to any other website... just not Hotmail. Do you have any suggestions as to what the trouble might be?

Open a cmd prompt and type 'nslookup www.hotmail.com' and paste the output.

The strange thing is that I am using a home LAN, and other computers on the LAN can access Hotmail just fine... it is just the one computer.

There must be something out of whack on just that one computer... any ideas on what I can check?
