Question about PC Desktops

4 Answers

I have a new compaq computer which has recently downloaded all my old infomation. However, now my live messenger hotmail account continues to revert back to the classic version of hotmail when I want the FULL version. I never had this problem before. I am totally illiterate about computers and had the old info install for me.

    I do not have a desktop Compaq, my computer is a laptop 6820s. How will my response be sent to me?

    We have tried multiple times to uninstall and then install and the same problem exist. It changes to the full version and as soon as I hit back for something on the computer, it reverts to the classic version of live windows. I am having to go to options and change back to full a dozen or so times a day. My staff person who is helping me wrote the following note to me after all these uninstalls and reinstalls. See below: benkejones

    From Alicia to Wanda
    I had to choose this under options:

    Use the full version. We'll only give you the
    classic version if you're using a browser or a monitor
    that requires it.

    I think we need to contact them and ask them what type of browsers
    or monitors require the classic version instead of the full.
    Maybe there is a setting we need to change.

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 mns messanger is temperly blocked and i cant get into it


your account might need to be re activated ?

You may notice occasionally that your MSN or Hotmail/Windows Live account has been locked by Microsoft. Due to this, you are unable to login to your email account. You may not even access your Windows Live Messenger. This typically occurs when your account was compromised. Someone may have hacked into your account or stolen your password. Windows Live offers a systematic process to recover and unlock your account. You will need an alternate email address to perform this task.

Navigate to Windows LiveID Account Recovery help page. Read the instructions and click "Continue" twice. Type an alternative email address in the box under Contact Email Address. Click "Continue." Log in to your alternate email account. Open the email from "Windows Live." Click the link provided to you in the email. This will take you to the password recovery process. Type a new password and retype it to confirm. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the reset. Try to log in to your MSN account using any of the MSN products, including Hotmail and Windows Live Messenger. You will be able to access your MSN account.

How do you delete old email 'address'es in my computer file


Which email account ?

Erase Email Addresses in My Computer


Email addresses can be stored on a computer if you use email software, such as Microsoft Office Outlook and Yahoo Messenger Beta.


Deleting email addresses manually from these programs does not actually completely erase them from your computer.


To erase email addresses permanently, meaning that a hard drive recovery program will not be able to restore them if it is used, requires a process called formatting, which completely erases the information on a hard drive.


Click on the shortcut "My Computer," which you can locate on your desktop.


Right click "Local Disk (C:)" and select the "Format" option.


Change the "Allocation Size Unit" to "Default Allocation Size."


Click the "Start" button.

The email addresses, as well as the rest of the files on the hard drive, will now be erased.


Delete a Live Mail Email Address


Windows Live Mail is a part of the Windows Live suite of productivity and entertainment programs, and it is intended to be the new free email client for Windows beginning with Windows 7.


After trying Windows Live Mail, you may decide that you have added too many email addresses and that you would prefer to use the email client to check only one address.


Remove an email address from Windows Live Mail to reduce the clutter in your email inbox.
Launch Windows Live Mail, and browse to the "Tools" menu at the top of the screen.


Click "Accounts."

Click the email account that you would like to delete.


Click the "Remove" button.

A message will appear to remind you that any messages belonging to the email account that are not backed up in another location will be deleted permanently.


Click "OK" to confirm.

The account will be deleted immediately.


Click "Close" to return to Windows Live Mail.


Delete Hotmail Adresses


Log in to your hotmail account and click "Help."


Search for "Cancel Account" and select "Why are all my email messages gone?"

Expand the option that says "Close a free Hotmail account" and click "Windows Live Hotmail close account."


Click "Close Account" on the page that opens.


If you do not sign in to your account for 365 days, your account will also be deleted.





Hope this helps.

Windows live messenger. Display picture always reverts to original after I've changed it.


You might be having problems with your Windows Live software, try uninstalling it and reinstalling it from messenger.live.com.

If this does not solve your problem, it could be your account on Windows Live, in which case you may be out of luck!
