    I have just written you a note of explanation, then I clicked on Helpful, when all I had written disappeared. Did it reach you?

The only solution is to contact Hotmail support. Unfortunately, there is no other way if you have not set up an alternate enail address where your new password can be sent.

    Why a "Thanks For Trying" rating? That's a negative rating. There is nothing anyone can do about this. The ONLY people who can help here are Hotmail Support. If there was anything I could do regarding this from my end, I would definitely do so. Thats why I'm here :)

    I request you to kindly revise the rating to at least "helpful" which is neutral rating. Thank you.

Reset Windows 7 Password


Anyone can forget a password. Okay you may think it will never happen to you, but think again, because it may just happen. Forgetting your user account password is no big deal providing you have taken the necessary precautions to create a Password Reset Disk.<br /> Sadly, if you haven't created a <b>Password Reset Disk</b> for your Windows operating system then gaining access to your PC will become a nightmare. I'm not saying that it is impossible, because it isn't. However, this tutorial refers to resetting your user account password with the aid of your <b>Windows Password Reset Disk</b>.<br /> The first you will know about your password being wrong is when you type the password in at boot up and a message appears telling you that <i><b>The User Name or Password is Incorrect</b></i>.

Can't log in to msn.com


When you log in to MSN a website powered by Microsoft you also log in to its Hotmail and Messenger programs.


Hotmail is MSN's email program, while Messenger is an instant messaging and networking program.


Because Messenger and Hotmail are connected to MSN, if you have problems logging into one program, you'll likely have issues logging in to all of them.


Register for Account


The first step to logging in to any MSN-powered sites is to have a Windows Live ID.

This includes an email address, which acts as your username, as well as a password.


The email address must end in either "@hotmail.com," "@live.com" or "@msn.com."

Even though these emails use different domain names, all can be accessed by logging in to the Hotmail homepage.


If you try to log in to MSN or any of its partner sites like Hotmail or Messenger using anything but a Windows Live ID, you won't be allowed to access or create a profile and will be prompted to create a Windows Live account.


Incorrect Password


The most likely reason you aren't able to sign in to your MSN accounts is user error.

Entering an incorrect email address or password will return an error message, informing you that either the email address you provided isn't registered with MSN, or that you entered an incorrect password.


MSN and, hence, Hotmail and Messenger passwords are case sensitive, so check your keyboard's settings before retyping your password a second time.


If you don't remember your password but know your Windows Live ID, you can opt to reset your password by answering some security questions pertaining to your account.


Browser Issues


A slow browser can impact your ability to log in to your MSN accounts.

Try deleting your browser's cookies and clearing its cache before attempting to sign in again. This process varies from browser to browser.


For example, in Internet Explorer, click on the gear icon, "Internet Options" and click "Delete" under Browsing History.

Check the "Cookies" box and click "Delete."


Internet Issues


A slow Internet connection can also hinder your login attempts.

Check your Internet connection to make sure you're connected to the Internet.


Also, check that you're working online instead of offline, which can prevent you from logging in.


Click on the "File" tab at the top of your browser, and make sure there's not a check mark next to the words "Work Offline."


If there is, click on the words to uncheck that option and sign in again.

There might be some interference from another browser

Create the menu tab on your homepage right click in the top toolbar you should see a number of toolbar options select the menu tab which will add File Edit View Favorites Tools and Help

Click on the tools at the bottom of the drop down list will be internet options or
click start control panel internet options you will see a home page box To Create Page Tabs type

each adress on its own line (type in MSN.com) or you preferred home page and browser
below that will be change search defaults click on settings you will see all search providers you have if dont need any of them you can disable or remove them.


Hope this helps.

Hello, i purchased the bookkeeper 2009. installed on computer. followed all directions. 1st time i set it up iwould not allow me to use the password i had selected. ok, so i unistalled the program...


I hope the "password" you're trying to use isn't actually the CD key. If you're putting your password into the CD key column then it'll never work, check the side of your box for that.

If not, then make sure you're registering with the correct information. If you're registering with an email address then check it and see if there is a confirmation email. If not then make sure you're typing everything correctly.

You have to ask your for your password to be reset so you can choose a new one. One possible thing is that you have some caracters not accepted in your password. You need a second email address.

Can't log into my hotmail account


put u r name as well as@hotmail.com and then put u r password
if it is not logging in then put only mail id and say forgot password
it will ask for a security question if u answer this then it will show u r password thats it

Normally people type only the name of mail id they will not type @hotmail.com because in other websites like yahoo, rediff etc only name is sufficient where as in hotmail u should type full i.e, u r name of the id and @hotmail.com

if everything is correct then we should contact hotmail provider
