Linux is not window, you cannot install windows programs on Linux, you got a find an equivalent or research a program called wine to run windows programs on Linux.

hotmail is that not a web based email like google login web browser check mail thing?

BW,
Think, "The Age of AOL," when dinosaurs ruled the earth. Hotmail was the original Microsoft web mail product. It was pre "Live."


mbresh,
Why can't you access your girlfriend's Hotmail account. Does she want you to? What errors are you receiving? What Linux distribution are you running, both name and version?
