If you go to some variation of http://login.live.com/ you should see a link
to "Sign up for an account". That link should not redirect you to a login
page. If you can't seem to find the way, this should work:

Free Yahoo accounts that are based in the US have webmail access only.

To register for a second Hotmail or Live.com account, go to
http://login.live.com and click on the link "Sign up for an account".
