Original title: I cannot send emails using Hotmail. Internet Explorer shuts down. Also, when I log on, the BING tool bar shuts down.

I have had the same problem for over a month now. I found the problem, it seems that in windows xp and in windows vista there is a Microsoft Silverlight download which is an add on for Internet Explorer. I went in and disabled the Microsoft SilverLight and now my hotmail is back up and running. Hope this helps.
