Microsoft has another hard on for security
Once again not for entering incorrect information email/ password but because I have a hotmail address in general lol

Landing page now is the actual MS store website and not hotmail.com
With a link that says pretty much Looking for your inbox click here garbage

About as close as I get from closing it
Sending codes just to login is freaking silly as it gets.

I wind up with Outlook.com, even though I have a *.live account. I checked after your post and it behaves normally, so far. Maybe MS hasn't messed that up yet.

today it is miserably grey and misty and it's raining heavy. I got back pain and I need to get up now to give ski lessons.

When I come home I will have a long hot bath and a big muck of even hotter tea with honey and rum !!!!!

Hi,
Seems it only happens using win-7 so MS is just very weird
I haven't tried ie11 it stinks so bad I have abandoned it
There is zero chance of me ever buying or renting anything from the MS store but is exactly where I'm redirected too :/

Finally got rid of it by changing the link to the sign in page
Code:
https://outlook.live.com/owa/

Somehow, someway a Trojan got into one of my systems after a Repair Install.
I probable came from on of the programs I installed. The normal programs I use from what I thought was the proper place to get them.

Running scans MSE found it along with Eset. Now, how in the hell can a security scan find and remove it, and yet allow it into my system?

I installed a SSD with a Clone and scanned the Clone. It was clean.
I then upgraded to Malwarebytes 3.0 and so far things are good. Upgrading to MBAM 3.0 was simple and painless. Right over the top of the 2.0xxx without a problem.

I have been busy with this one computer for a few days trying to find out how I got the infection with out any exact results. I use the same programs on my other computer and also go to the same websites with it and their is no infection. It will probable remain a mystery. I have had a infection in years so I'm just curious.

One of the strange things is, I used RKill before the scans and it found no infections to stop in order to run the other security scans.
I forgot to save the name of the infection but it was something to do with a false Firefox. I always get Firefox from the Mozilla website and no other place.
Very strange.

P/S:
Thank you Macrium Reflect.
Worked like a charm.

Jack,

only thing i can think to check is that you have the option to scan archives set on on your AV / AM, (not always available depending on products used), malware nested inside Zips and compressed installers is a popular way to get past the vigilant user

Thank you Nigel for the suggestions.
I think I have things set to check Zip's and archives but I will double check.
