ok so run me through this, is it when:

- you enter the url www.hotmail.com

- you enter your correct details and start the login

- or when you open the desired email.

Ok, hotmail uses stored visual basic scripts and one of these has been infected.

Make sure the antivirus is up to date, clear your browser history including downloaded program files, reboot, and run a full virusscan immediately.

It should clean everything that way.
