Hello,

Got up this morning and my can't access my hotmail.

When I clicked on my hotmail, it asked me to sign-in, which that sometimes happen (why? I don't know) but anyways, typed in my password and it brought me to my account was blocked. Clicked on the 'continue' on the unblock your account' and it showed me an error application. This has never happened before and I've had hotmail for years.

Tried to google on how to unblock and saw a video on YouTube. That's fine and dandy if you can get in and block certain contacts ... as on the video. That's not what I want. I want to get to my emails.

Tried Abiscus (sorry if that's not the correct name ... can't go back to get the correct name)'s links and it brings me to a 'server error application' ...

Help. I'm not a computer savvy expert here.
