  • How can I find the private forum that was set up for me about my hotmail password reset problem?

    You have found the information I sent to reset my password to be insufficient. I need to give you additional information you need, but the link you sent to your email address doesn't seem to take me anywhere where I can do.

    In addition, some of the information requested was for my credit card, but I'm using a free account and I guess I don't need to present this type of information. Is this correct?

    Hi Daniel,.

    I know not who talk you to or by what method (phone, online, email, chat,...), or how it started, but I strongly suspect that is NOT anyone of Hotmail and you should stop communicating with them and providing personal information any more than you already have and immediately delete all emails from them and who come in the future and do not go to all the links in the emails and do not open attachments to emails.  I'm almost certain it's a scam and an attempt to identity theft and possibly worse.

    Now let's awhile back and check something.  Did you password reset instructions below and receive the email them with a link to reset?  If so, this may be valid; However, if the link is not valid (or even if it is still perhaps not trust because he could easiily be redirected) and request information (enamel on their part is not ask for information but just give a link), especially as your credit card, then it is totally wrong and what I said above applies. In this case, I post on the forum and forget that normal reset method and get help directly from them where you KNOW who you're talking about.

    If they want to use the e-mail process (or need to because you have not provided no alternative), then ask you provide the link they will send (I guess they won't) or to include a way to check for certain that the email is from them given the circumstances - perhaps including a few special as coded message "this message is verified to support Hotmail with the code we agreed on Au93kgke9le ' or some thing like this and ask them to send you a private link response so you can send private code and not in the open air in the thread.

    To resolve this issue, go to http://windowslivehelp.com/product.aspx?productid=1 for support of Hotmail.  For assistance with your password, post your question in the following forum: http://windowslivehelp.com/forums.aspx?forumid=d3fda415-1e53-4007-8e0c-2a77180ffb1d.   Here is specific information on the password reset: http://windowslivehelp.com/solution.aspx?solutionid=bf5d34bf-db28-44ca-ac9a-93838d81b2d6 but be careful if the messaging process is used and do as shown above, or make them use another method (or offer a safe alternative).

    I hope this helps.

    Good luck!

    Hello

    I'm helping a friend reset his hotmail password, but they have not yet sent a new password to another address, and it's been more than 48 hours.
    I also tried to reset my own so that I could understand the process and they have not sent me a new password either, same time frame.
    Is there a way to talk to someone to get the reset password if the normal procedure fails?
    Is there a way I can talk or IM support to solve more attacking right and fast way?
    I've got something I think not?

    ORIGINAL TITLE: Problem with restore disc

    Yes; you don't specify your question.

    It is called password reset; No restoration.

    And do you it before you lose or forget your password; not after the password is lost.

    For you, this is the connection string, which I used at the top of the page. (obviuosly replace the XXXX with your own login details ie username, password and databasename liked if the server is something other than ' localhost; changing also.)

    # Connect

  • Account compromised Hotmail - password reset does not work!

    A few days ago my account Hotmail "sent" emails to all my contacts, even if the emails are not in my sent items folder.  To prevent this from happening again, I installed antivirus software and also deleted all my contacts from Hotmail.  I could access the account for a day or two, but now, without warning, I can not access my TI at all.  When I try to log on I get a screen "your account has been blocked.  I have a second email address, to which I ask a verification code sent to unlock my Hotmail.  When I enter the code, I get a screen "Reset your password".  I have reset a strong password and save, then resubmit my secondary e-mail address, then continue.  I wonder for a phone number as another option of password recovery, but I ignore this screen and click on continue.  I get then tell screen ' authorized error 401 - no server: access denied due to credentials not valid.  You are not authorized to view this directory or page using the credentials you provided "."

    Makes no sense to me!

    I installed Avast antivirus and Microsoft Security Essentials but neither picked up a virus on my system.

    Help, please!  I really need to access my account!

    Hello

    First of all you must have a significant anti-virus program on the computer at one time much
    less running. Even if disabled they will always load parts of themselves into a memory that
    can cause strange issues while actually reduce safety. Even the remains of a
    uninstalled antivirus may cause problems.

    Hotmail hacked? Take these steps
    http://blogs.msdn.com/b/securitytipstalk/archive/2010/07/07/Hotmail-hacked-take-these-steps.aspx

    If we had the same problem that we would have to use the links above and these methods.

    ===========================================================

    More information:

    If someone is Spoofing emails that appear to come from you then they probably never
    had access to your e-mail account. Instead, they have either a copy of your contacts
    list or just an email from you or one of you where you were one of the recipients. Those
    could be gleaned either your computer, the computer of a friend, or hacking
    any site or intercept an email on your behalf or to you (you may not be the main)
    (beneficiary).

    Once they have this information there is nothing you can do to avoid that they don't
    send usurped messages. Warn your friends that is happening and they
    can be entitled to install rules such as parodies are treated as SPAM or JUNK
    mail.

    I've even seen usurped by email that appears to be from a valid user name however
    This name doesn't have an e-mail account on the mail system used in parody.
    As SpiritX - AT - realmail.com may be a valid account, however, parody used
    SpiritX - AT - wrongmail.com. The latter could still be considered an email address valid
    SpiritX if it was allowed through JUNK and JUNK e-mail filtering. (The - AT - has been used
    instead of so that those addresses would not be filtered by auto responses.
    as if by magic.)

    ============================================================

    Proceed to a very thorough check for malware and then change your password by e-mail.

    The reason why you want to do this is to make sure no more hacking your computer is
    still in effect (if it has been hacked). You have changed the password once but I would
    Change it again after these checks.

    It is possible for a person to send the email that 'seems' to be of your
    account but that is not really - called "Spoofing." That means its 'Possible' emails
    were not really you, although they may have your contact list. Have someone
    who receives the e-mails to check the header to see where he is actually sent by and
    NOT only the answer to the address.

    =============================================

    If you need search malware here's my recommendations - they will allow you to
    scrutiny and the withdrawal without ending up with a load of spyware programs running
    resident who can cause as many questions as the malware and may be more difficult to detect as the
    cause.

    No one program cannot be used to detect and remove any malware. Added that often easy
    to detect malicious software often comes with a much harder to detect and remove the payload. Then
    its best to be thorough than paying the high price later now too. Check with them to one
    extreme overkill point and then run the cleaning only when you are sure that the system is clean.

  • Key to Windows 7 password reset problem

    I have created a key to reset Windows 7 password on a USB key according to the instructions. When I tested it, the computer he labeled as being in drive F, but he gave only the insert options in the G or H drive. The only way I could make it work was to use two players to jump. Then he would see the reset key in the drive I have and I would go forward. How can I fix?

  • MySQL root password reset problem

    Hello

    As the title suggests, I forgot my MySQL root password (and where I wrote it down) and have done endless research (Google, MySQL site and forum, etc), tried the resolutions, but did not have luck by resetting the password.

    I tried the instructions on the MySQL site, but when I did, I got this:

    mysql_changerootpwd_cmd.gif

    I tried to remove and restart the bodies, as well as uninstalling MySQL, by restarting and then reinstall; always without success.

    I am running PHP (5.3.0) and MySQL (5.1.37) on Windows Vista.

    I appreciate any help anyone can offer.

    Thank you

    Heather

    The easiest way I know to deal with this situation on Windows is to uninstall MySQL. Doing so should leave intact in the data folder databases, although you might want to first copy the contents of the data folder to another location.

    Inside the data folder is another folder called mysql. Remove and then reinstall MySQL. Then you should be able to put in place a new root password.

    I recently updated my home information, but my old secondary e-mail address to use for password reset confirmation is no longer active.  I said it's "lost" (only option provided for me) but Hotmail now lists my another new address but it showing pending confirmation by e-mail.  I came across the same problem when I tried to have my PC listed as "Trusted PC"...  Hotmail wanted to send confirmation to my former secondary e-mail before you "trust" to my new PC.

  • How can I contact someone to help me reset my hotmail password.

    Microsoft HELP due to e-mail

    I have tried EVERYTHING to reset the password to my hotmail account, whose three help to call phone numbers that I found on Google, there is NO phone number on your web site to help. I sent many different places of MSN 'help' and went around and around in every way possible to help your site and much more.

    In fact, it is one of the most frustrating things I've ever met when it comes to customer service. I've been a hotmail Subscriber since I've owned a computer, at least 15 years with the same account. This week he just blocked me access to my account and asked me to reset my password. When I do, there is an automatic password that is already registered for my account. When I submit the application says its incorrect. I tried the password I've always had, and others, but nothing works. Trying to recover my password 'forgotten' just ends up by me on the same page without success, as does everything else I've tried.

    The only real person I managed to talk with, to the billing office, expected to sign a new hotmail account and sign up from there to get help, but now my old address has completely disappeared and I find myself just in the same without end and unnecessary help circle and cannot use my old address at all even to try to reset password again.

    In my research, I discovered a web site with thousands of people with the same complaint, who also tried without success to retrieve their escrow accounts
    and are frustrated as I am.

    I lost years of e-mail addresses and much more. It seems to me that there is no solution, but to get a gmail account instead and abandon. Is there someone out there who CAN SOLVE THIS?

    Microsoft should be ashamed of its customer service. I can't believe how, and it's useless. Security is good, but this is ridiculous.
