Hotmail won't logout

Each time I logout of Hotmail I get the following error. Of course closing the browser will work, deleting cookies doesn't. Anyone else get this too?

Hey Gary,

I think it has something to do with security settings, etc. How high is your cookie settings? Put it back to default, exit the browser, and try it again

Thanks Dusty, here are my cookie setting which have been the same for years. Only recently has the issues started. I have tried the default setting with the same result, not logged out.

Gary,

Do you remember any settings you've changed recently? It may be a tracking protection list, or perhaps security software (including addons). You may have to experiment with cookie settings and security settings to find the culprit. I have had that before and was just as confused as you as to why I got the error. I wish I could remember what I changed to fix it.

...And it could always be on hotmail's end.

To my best recollection, all is the same. I suspect you're right about it being on Hotmail's end...customer enhancement no doubt. Thanks.
