Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

A colleague of mine had his hotmail account hacked and the password changed and the hackers sent out an email to his contacts requesting $ to get him out of a jam!...needless to say, he can't get into his account now and has 8 years of personal contacts that he can't get access to now! Searched the net for a contact number for hotmail but no luck and no replies from emails to their feedback forum! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks hotfudge@iinet.net.au

All I can think to do (Besides calling Microsoft who currently owns hotmail), is to tell hotmail that you password. If he has another e-mail address he may have put this information in when signing up for his hotmail account. If he tells hotmail he forgot his password, they should send it or a new password to his other e-mail account. If he did not provide them with another account I reccomend calling microsoft.

I forgot my pattern password and my email password


Pattern Password ??????
Which email account ?????...
Email providers such as Hotmail, Yahoo! and Gmail make it easy for email account holders to request an old password.
You must know your complete email address and have an alternative email address or cell phone number where a confirmation code can be sent.
If you cannot get your password back, your email provider will delete the old one. You can then create a new password.
Go to the email provider's website. For example, if your email address is registered with Yahoo!, go to Yahoo.com and if your email address is registered with Hotmail, go to Hotmail.com.
Find the sign-in section on the main page of the website.
You will see one box for your email ID and one for your email password.

Click the link that says, "Forgot your password?" if you're trying to recover a password belonging to a Hotmail email account.
Click the link that says, "Can't Access Your Account?" if you want to recover a password belonging to a Yahoo! or Gmail email account.
Check the circle indicating that you need to recover your password.
A page under the heading, "Reset your password," will appear.
You'll be asked to enter your email address.
Enter the characters in the picture box to confirm that your request is authentic. Email providers such as Hotmail, Yahoo! and Google employ this security feature to stop automated programs from illegally accessing email accounts.
Click "Continue."
Confirm your cell phone number or alternate email address, which the email provider will use to send a confirmation code.
Do not exit from this page.
You will need it later.
Go back to the page where you confirmed your cell phone number.
Enter the confirmation code that you received.
Click "Next."
Enter a new password, if requested, or sign in using your old password, which will appear on screen.

My hotmail acount got hacked


Not really, you might be able to get it back, but it's a lot easier to try and get a similar sounding gmail, acct. Someone has access to your machine, or account. I wouldn't take the chance that they get it again. just go for a ne one.

My msn is not letting me on says my password doesnt exist but yit no one knows my password,And when a try to change it the secret question that i am supposed to have is the wrong one


If your secret question is not the one it should be, then you are either trying to get into the wrong account, or someone has guessed the answer to your secret question and changed it, so they now have access to your email account.

You cannot access now, period.
However, *S* This happened to a friend of mine once, and he opened a new email account and sent an email to his OLD account very politely asking for the password so he could get his email back.
Sure enough, he must have been a nice hacker, because he sent him the new password.
He then accessed his account again, and changed the password and the hint question ( to a better one)

The net can be a very surprising place. *s*
Good luck.

Hi Fleghorn,

Please go the hotmail website, and enter the email Id, then click on Forgot password,

After then it will ask you to provide a email id on which information for Reset Password can be sent.

Then provide the Login email id, information will be recieved on that.

To solve this one, you'll need to contact hotmail's support staff via email. Click the link below to try and contact them about suspected email account hijacking:
