Question about Computers & Internet

Hi i'm hoping you can help me. My hotmail has recently stopped letting me log in. i know my password is correct, it stopped letting me access my e-mail's about two weeks ago i would imagine. I have no idea what my security question is as it was many years ago. Am also slightly concerned that my facebook account stopped working around the same time..i am unsure whether this is related but a bit worried. Any ideas? Thank you Nikki Bevan nikkibevan@hotmail.co.uk

Can you log into MSN if you have it? because if not, I'm afraid to say that it would be your password details by the sound of what has happened. The two are strongly related and if your hotmail and facebook have stopped working then most likely someone has got hold of your password(s) and changed them, otherwise it would be a extreme coincidence that the two were not related to password theft. The best thing to do is to create a new hotmail account and immediately let all your contacts know about the false account someone has hacked into and have a stronger password which is numbers and symbols such as % or ! in your password to prevent it from being easily found out. If you can login, refere to the hotmail technical support and let them know the situation, but it seems unlikely because you also mentioned problems with facebook

Hope this helps you

Why cant I get into Hotmail?????????


Hotmail Won't Load
Hotmail is a free email service provider operated by Microsoft.
Though Hotmail has existed since the early 1990s, changes made to the service may be preventing Hotmail from loading correctly on your computer.
Clear your Web browser's cookies and then restart your browser.
Enter your Web browser's "Options" utility and delete all cookies, then restart your browser, then try to load Hotmail again.
Cookies are files that store information on your computer.
Your Web browser constantly refers to the information as it loads websites.
If an error has been stored in a cookie, it is possible that this could prevent you from being able to log into Hotmail.
Go directly to the Windows Live website.
Though Hotmail addresses and the service itself still exists, Hotmail has existed under the "Windows Live" banner of products since 2007 with the release of Windows Vista.
If you're attempting to load Hotmail through Hotmail.com, your browser may be having a hard time redirecting you to the new site.
Go to the Windows Live website (see Below) directly and try to log in there. http://login.live.com/

Type your user name correctly. To log into your Hotmail account you are going to need to type your full user name followed by "@hotmail.com" into the "Windows Live ID" box on the site.
If you leave out the "@hotmail.com" part of your email address, Windows Live will be unable to log you into your Windows Live inbox.
Type your password correctly.
Hotmail account passwords are case sensitive, which means that capital letters are considered different from lowercase letters.
Make sure all letters that should be capitalized in your password are (and those that shouldn't be capitalized aren't), and then click "Sign In" to try to access your Hotmail account again.
also
Check you username and password.
Hotmail passwords are case sensitive, so something as simple as having your caps lock on can keep you from accessing your account.
Double check to be sure you are typing both your username and password exactly how you created them.
Reset your password.
If you haven't logged into your Hotmail in some time and suspect you might be using the wrong password, click the "Forgot Your Password?" link on the Hotmail log-in page.
On the next screen, follow the prompts to enter your email address and the given security verification code.
Click "continue" and on the next screen, select the option that allows you to answer your pre-set security question.
This is a question you supplied when you set up your Hotmail account.
After correctly answering the question, you will be prompted to reset your password.
Clear your browser history and temporary Internet folders if you are continually getting a "Page Cannot Be Displayed" message when you log in.
The exact procedure for doing this depends on your operating system and browser.
If you continue to get see this message, it could indicate a problem with the Hotmail server.
Check the status of the network on a site like Down Right Now that reports server problems on popular sites.
Submit a support request on the Windows Live page.
On the Windows Live site, select "Hotmail" under "Standard Services."
A search screen will open that will allow you to check out a variety of Hotmail related support topics.
At the bottom of that screen, choose "get more help" and then "support."
A support form will open for you to complete and submit to the Hotmail team.
You will receive an answer within 24 hours.
Note that you will need a second email account that you can access so that the Hotmail support staff can send you your answer.

Hi,
As you have changed the default IP Address of the router, you can access the router by using the newly assigned IP (192.168.1.11) and new username and password (if you have made any changes to the defaults).

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

I cannot log in to facebook. Either I am not remembering my password correctly or they have blocked my account. They do not send me e-mails when I request a password reset.


Hi, if you have typed your email in correctly, but forgotten your password, it comes up with a box (pink background / red border), stating your log-in name, and below that, your email. Just double check it's yours. If you have used a different email account to log into FB, then they'll be sending your password to the email account shown below your profile picture. Check that email address (if you have access to it). Also, if your own email is coming up, just double check the FB emails are not in your "junk / trash" inbox. You may have set FB as a blocked sender on your email account - you'll need to check that setting too (I can't help with that, as I don't know your email provider).

Hopefully that will sort your problem, let me know on here if it doesn't please?

If it is then try to login with the same username and password on www.hotmail.com if you can log in then it's a problem with outlook express if you cant then that is the problem.
