Windows 7: WLM/Hotmail keeps logging out

WLM/Hotmail keeps logging out

Hello all.

In the past week i have had problem staying connected through WLM.
When i first boot up computer and log into WLM Ver:14.0.8117.416 it tells me if i have any emails and i go to the inbox and check them. After about 1/2 mins windows Live Messenger signd itself out. If i go to sign in the sign in window pops up and i enter detais but the WLM icon on the taskbar says i am logged in but then if i click on inbox a window opens but it wont connect to hotmail its just a blank IE page.
The only way i have kept logged in is when i first log on i open hotmail and then i have to keep that webpage open all the time if not WLM logs off.
A few days before this happened i lost connection to my Sky broadband for 2/3 hours and i rebooted the router and all was good.
I have done Spybot, Malwarebytes, SuperAntiSpyware and Microsoft Security and they all came back ok.
I also have done a system restore to before i had the problem but that never got rid of it.
Any help much welcome.

It has still been the same since my 1st post.
Microsoft support weren't much help.
I installed windows Live essentials 2012 and that was ok for 3 days but i didnt like the layout so uninstalled it and put back WLM but the same problem exists.
The only way i can keep myself logged in is to keep the IE window open when i look at my emails but as soon as i shut down that window it logs me out.

Any ideas people.
