    Er... did you click on the 'Why?' link to find out why?

    I don't use Hotmail myself, but it looks like a standard 'human involvement required' trap to stop robots from automatically logging in. The characters are designed to prevent any kind of OCR software from reading them. They therefore need to change every time.
