Has Windows Live Hotmail ever given you the following message when you were trying to create a new Hotmail account? “You've reached the daily limit for creating Windows Live IDs. Please wait a day and try to sign up again or contact support for assistance - Error code: 450 : 0x800482d4” — This all too common problem throws a confusing error message, since most people who see it have either not tried creating a new Hotmail account since they opened their first one, or more ironically, have never yet opened a new Hotmail account.
0x800482d4" error message is a problem with Hotmail you can ignore: in order to try to prevent automated (spam) Hotmail signups, the Windows Live team has put measures in place to restrict signing up for a new Hotmail account after several accounts and/or attempts have already been created or made from the computer and/or web browser in question.
Unfortunately, this common Hotmail problem and error message and are often not warranted: if you receive that error message, try signing up for your new Hotmail account from a different web browser (e.g. use Firefox if your default browser is Internet Explorer, or try signing up from a colleague's computer). Failing such workaround, try either a few hours later, or, as the message suggests, the next day. Depending on how Windows Live determines repeat automated signup, your computer might be perceived as an unwanted automated user, when in reality you have done nothing wrong.
This is what happens when a super popular email service like Hotmail tries to automate some user management functions: don't take it personally, try a bit later, and keep in mind that the only time you will see this error message is when you are signing up for a new account - in other words, unless you regularly change email address, you will not have this problem while reading or sending emails.
Note that there could be valid reasons for which you receive this Hotmail error message: if you are trying to setup a new Hotmail account from a public computer, for example at the library, imagine that there have probably been several people before you who may have tried to sign up for Hotmail. In this case, while you did nothing to receive the error message, the Windows Live mechanism that prevents automated signups did do its job properly. If this is the case, you can try to sign up from work, where you are the only user at your computer (or one of few), or try to sign up early in the morning at the library. Again, once you have signed up for Hotmail, you will no longer have to go through this hassle - this will have been a one-time only problem - and your next sign in will bring you straight to your Hotmail inbox.
