New problems with Hotmail and IE and Vista?

In the last few days, my Hotmail locks up (IE 9.0, Vista)
Look at the photo. The webpage tab at the top, says Hotmail but the page is Craigslist.
I click on "refresh" and it says it is going to live dot com, and Hotmail is the tab at the top but the page stays on Craigslist.
I just opened the address bar and clicked on Hotmail in my browsing history.
This should open Hotmail in the browser and remove Craigslist, but it does not.
This happens after IE and Hotmail have been open a few hours. Today it happened after 2 hours.
Looking for a fix, not suggestions of FF, etc. I use FF too but it has issues too.t

This type of response is usually due to malware.  Download Malwarebytes,  install it,  update its database, and run a quick scan.  See what it finds.

does this happen if you type http://hotmail.com directly in the address bar?
if so, check your system for malware

I'll run Malwarebytes.
I did a full scan 10+ days ago.
I can not say, exactly, when the problem started - before or after the Malwarebyte scan.

Why You Should Analyze Threat Actor TTPs

After years of analyzing threat actor behavior, it’s become clear that at any given time there are specific tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that are particularly prevalent. By analyzing and understanding these TTPs, you can dramatically enhance your security program.

The Malwarebyte scan found PUP.mywebsearch.
While the scan was in progress, MSE found Java/CVE......

This brings up the fact that community support says that the EE website uses Java.

If the site uses Java, then how do we prevent the Java Trojan?
This is the 3rd time the Java/CVE was found, in recent weeks.
