Every time I try to sign into Windows Live using IE I get a HTTP 405 error. It works fine in Fire Fox. I'm using IE 10, but had same problem with 9. Is there anything I can do?

Are you sure you are using the right user ID and password?

It may seem like overkill but you could try a Repair Install.  It should not affect your personal data or installed programs, but a backup first never hurts.

I wasn't getting a sign on page, so it wasn't wrong pw.

I guess it may have had something to do with being signed on. I signed out, then tried the links, it will let me sign in now.

Not exactly sure why it happened, but it's working for now.

imccoy--Glad to hear all is well.
A little "jiggling" often helps.  As does closing and reopening the browser--or a reboot.  :)
