Hello, someone hacked my password on hotmail. I don't know how to create a new password to be able to get back my messages on hotmail. Can you help me please ?You can answer me on the adress :...


Hi there! :) if you can't log in to your hotmail account you need to do this steps :)
Click your email link in Hotmail. Click on the words "Forgot Password" found under the sign on link. On the next page, there are two ways to reset your lost password, "Verify Information and Reset Password Online" or "Send Reset Instructions to my Email Address".
2.Answer the questions on the next page. This is the information you provided to Hotmail when you signed up for your account. Enter your country, state and zip code and the answer to your secret question.
3.Choose a new password. Make sure this is something you can remember but is hard for someone else to guess.
4.Ask Hotmail to send the password reset information to your email if you do not remember the answers to the secret question. An email will arrive at the alternate email address you provided during registration.
5.Open the email and click on the link. Follow the instructions to change your password.
6.Confirm your new Hotmail password by signing into your Hotmail account. Save your new password in a safe place
hope it works :)

I dont know the reset password of my lg cookie phone


When you have some problems with your lg secret, Do you know how to hard reset or factory reset the lg secret?
You can go to LG Secret's "Settings", then "reset settings", the reset code of the LG Secret was just 0000 (4 x zero). This reset the LG Secret phone, although i backed everything up i didnt lose any files but all the menus, themes etc were set back to default.

for more go to lg site http://www.lg-phones.org/category/lg-secret-info

I can't open it


The device could be locked into a password. Reset the password by clicking the options of password reset. A prompt should provide another asking to answer a secret question, once approved makes possible password reset into another code of choice. remember that reseting the password requires establshing another secret code question, that becomes handy whenever a password is lost. On a password lock, the only message displayed should be password related.

If you cannot verify your Secret Question and your account doesn't have an alternate email address or phone number we can use to identify you, then you will not be able to reset your password, get answers to questions about your billing, or receive technical support.

This LINK is for password retry.


If you need more help come back.Post / thumbs / testimonial are welcome!

Forgotten password for vista laptop couldn't find a back way in is there one


There should be a Blue arrow or icon to the right of where you type in your password, this is where you added your Secret Question. Did you check this? If not, go online and contact Microsoft (another machine, of coarse...) and tell them of the issue. They should e-mail back with a solution, or you can look for a Password Retrieval Program online, usually must pay for a Good One. Check CNET or Softpedia, Major-Geeks... all of the online sftwr. spots.

My wife, barbraella70@msn.com is having password problems


If you've simply forgotten your password, MSN Hotmail does provide at least one level of back-door that you can use to recover it - your alternate email address or secret question. If you don't have those, you're probably out of luck. Here's the approach to take when you've lost your password....

If your sign in to Hotmail fails, notice that there's a link immediately below the password field that states "Forgot your Password". Click it.
