For those of you who use bitdefender and are having issues with accessing hotmail, other sites...don't worry. You can go into the bitdefender program, then choose privacy, then de-select ssl as this seems to be blocking sites.
I personally couldn't access hotmail or a host of other sites. Not sure why. They may have gone overboard with protection, or ...who knows?

This appears to be the best way: (GUI>Web Protection>uncheck "Scan SSL").

I wouold add that for those who don't understand open the program/click on privacy...the little cog wheel in the corner/ turn OFF SSL ,,,not sure why but it works atm

There is also the small possibility that your hotmail connection is intentionally insecure so that your communications can be intercepted, and BitDefender is actually detecting it and preventing it.

Bit Defender is a bit like Norton, McAfee, AVG, and several other "Security Suites". They're all glitterware. They look pretty, and supposedly do all kinds of neat stuff, they offer a modicum of protection, but usually end up creating more issues than they solve.

I have solved more computer issues than I can count, simply by uninstalling these programs, and putting a simple anti-virus program in place of them. A free one at that. Folks, if you want a good anti-virus program for your computer, either use a free one like Microsoft Security Essentials, or use Endpoint protection, if you feel like you have to pay for it, in order for it to be good. Which isn't true btw.

Thanks OP, for posting this. That's useful information, and has been duly noted.

I don't actually have bit defender suite. Just the bit defender antivirus. I appreciate the advice about free anti viruses, however, having used basically all of them, and some other priced ones, I chose bit defender as the best of a bad bunch so to speak. Anyway, I hope this helps anyone who has been having the same issues as I had.

While that may be true, that doesn't help me with access to my emails lol. That would be a case of the remedy being worse than the disease wouldn't it?
