- It seems like somebody has hacked into your hotmail account and changed your password so you are unable to sign in.
- If messenger is tellling you: WRONG USER NAME OR PASSWORD it is that. - Otherwise try uninstalling and reinstalling msn messenger and see how it goes. - A good way to check if the password is WRONG (therefore changed) is go to and insider there put in your email and password (the ones you think are the good ones and see if it is telling you that the password is incorrect.

Failing to sign in is another thing. To check if it is a problem at your home on your computer use and try sign in there. If you are able to sign in then the reinstall of msn messenger should solve your problem.

One last thing if you installed a firewall make sure that msn messenger is added as an exception in the allow programs as you will keep encountering this problem.

I have forgot my password on msn hotmail and i dont know what i can do? it says my security answer is wrong when i know it but dont know the punctuation? What can I do?

You can use the "forgot password" wizard. If the security answer is incorrect, try typing it in different ways, for example without a space.

If you still can't get it to work you can also in the "forgot password" wizard, contact hotmail and they'll assist you in getting your account back by asking questions that only the owner of an email should be able to know.

E-mail address,password

I assume you have "Windows Live Messenger" already installed on you computer, and that you have an account already set up.

WLM uses the same information as your Hotmail account.  The user name for WLM is your Hotmail address; and the password for WLM is your Hotmail password.

If you've previously accessed WLM from that computer, then the user name (email address) and password are likely stored in the system.  You should be able to retrieve that information by using either of the following free software programs:
* MessenPass - see
* MSNLivePasswordDecryptor - see

If you know the email address, but have forgotten the password for your WLM/Hotmail account, you can retrieve or reset it online:
Click on "Forgot your password", then follow the instructions.

It's quite likely that somebody has "hacked" your ID/password, and is "hijacking" your ID to send thousands of E-mail messages.

Access to make sure that you are getting the "real" Hotmail web-site, not some imposter.

Point at the "sign in" area, and click the now-visible "Sign In" button.

Click "Forgot your password", and follow the instructions for answering your "secret" questions.

Correctly answer the questions, and you'll get to change the password.

Silly as the answer may be ddknox but the only way for you to delete it is to stop using it. The only way for an account to be deleted on Hotmail is that the user is supposed to be logged in. But your case here is different.

There is still one thing you can do other than the alternative email route when requesting for the new password.

Reset your password by entering your secret answer
  1. On any Windows Live ID site or service sign-in page, click Forgot your password?.
  2. Verify your Windows Live ID(The e-mail address and password that you use to sign in to WindowsLive programs and services such as Windows Live Hotmail and WindowsLive Messenger; Microsoft services such as Xbox LIVE, MSN, and OfficeLive; and anywhere else that you see the Windows Live ID logo.) , type the characters you see in the Picture box, and then click Continue.
  3. Click Use my location information and secret answer to verify my identity.
  4. In the Country/Region list, select your country or region, select your state, and then type your ZIP code ( The postal code system that is used in the United States. The ZIPcode consists of a series of digits that are added to a postal address.The ZIP code is used to identify each postal delivery area for thepurpose of sorting mail.) or postal code ( A series of letters and/or digits that are added to a postal addressand used by the postal service for the purpose of sorting mail.) if you’re prompted to do so. Ifyou've moved since signing up for your Windows Live ID, use thelocation information you last provided. If you've provided both a homeand work location, enter your home location.
  5. In the Question area in the Secret Answer box, type your answer to the question.
  6. Click Continue.
  7. Enter and confirm a new password, and then click Continue.
  8. If prompted, enter an alternate e-mail address (An alternate e-mail address is a secondary e-mail address registeredwith your Windows Live ID. If you forget your password, you can havethe password reset information sent to your alternate e-mail address.) and click Continue, or click Skip to bypass this step.
  9. On the You've changed your password page, click Sign in to Windows Live.
