Question about Computers & Internet
I'm sorry to tell you this but your hotmail account has been hacked and the password has been changed, what you have to do is contact Microsoft customer support and inform them of this, they will make sure that the password is reset and will go through it with you, while you are online, you have to be persistant with them and you could be on the phone for over an hour.
Hackers are targeting hotmail and yahoo messenger sevices and email addresses too, so be carefull when you use the messegers

Honestly, as long as your registered email address that they're sending your password to is correct, then it sounds like the problem is on their end. I would try to contact their customer service dept. or their support team to see what the issue is and how they're going to fix the email address that you've apparently kept for some time now. I understand how you feel... Once you get comfortable with your e-mail address and that's how everyone knows how to get a hold of you, it really can be a pain when you can't access it and even more bothersome to think that you may have to change it. Hopefully, this won't be the case. If I was able to help shed any light on the subject, then I'm happy to have been of assistance. Have a wonderful evening!

If you have a hotmail account you get two option to reset your password:
1. Provide a email address and they send a link to click on to reset the password
2. Provide the region where you are located and answer your secret question. Also make sure the characters given below you type it correctly. Any mistake and you will get the same option again and again.
In that case you have to create a new account.

Make sure the e-mail address that their password e-mail is going to is correct. Even the slightest error can send it to someone else. There are many free e-mail services. If the e-mail was correct, try setting up another account and have it sent to that one. If you have someone you can trust, have it sent to them so that you don't have to create another account. The other option is, though I can't make any promises that it will work, is to call them and there is a slight possibility that they can find a way to get a new one, possibly by mail? There really isn't anything else that you can try. The only other option is to close the account and get a new one.

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.
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.
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."
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.
