Every time you choose to save a password in an application or on a Web site, the password data is stored in a secure location on your computer. If you are an administrator, you can access the password data and retrieve a list of passwords that have been used on your computer. Password data is stored in different ways on PC and MacIntosh computers, but the information is accessible on both types of systems.

Log on to your PC computer with an administrator account. Open the "Start" menu and click on the "Run" button. Type "keymgr.dll" into the text box and hit "Enter." The Key Manager utility program will launch and display a list of passwords used on the computer. Highlight the password item you want more information about. Click on the "Properties" button on the right side of the window to view more information about the selected password item. The pop-up window will display the username, password and server address for the selected item. b> Mac Instructions b> Log on to your MacIntosh computer with an administrator account. Open a new "Finder" window by clicking on the icon in the dock. Go to the "Utilities" folder in the "Applications" section of the Mac hard drive. Double-click on the "Keychain Access" icon to launch the utility program. A list of all the passwords used on your computer will be displayed. Highlight a password item and click on the "i" button at the bottom of the window to view more information about it. Hope this helps.

When I sign in to Wts then reconnects by itself. Also, there is supposed to be a drop down menu at the top left when I click my name. The drop down menu does not appear when I click.


I have no clue what Wts is. If you mean windows live messenger then there should be an option to auto connect when windows start or when you open windows live messenger. Im not 100% sure. It can also happen when your connection drops if you are using a wireless card, try unchecking the boxes in the log in screen where it says, remember password. It won't connect if there is no password. Hope that helps. Cheers.

Hello

- 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 www.hotmail.com 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 www.meebo.com 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.

Cant log in windows live messenger - they says Error code 81000395


as refer to MSN error code,
You may not be able to sign in because you entered the wrong e-mail address. Re-enter your credentials and try to sign in to Messenger again.

If you sure you are enter correct username & password, second thing to check is your connectivity. In Windows Live Messenger,
  1. Click the Tools menu, and then click Options.
  2. In the left pane, click Connection.
  3. Click Refresh to freshen your display and view current information, such as signal strength, account name, and connection type. — or —
  4. To run the Connection Troubleshooter, click Start and the troubleshooter will run an analysis of your system and connection settings (Settings associated with your Internet connection.) . If you're using an 802.11b wireless card, the Connection Troubleshooter may indicate that you have a wired connection.
  5. Click Finish.
To test your connection settings:
  1. Click the Tools menu, and then click Options.
  2. Under Connection, click Advanced Settings.
  3. Click Test to run several tests on your connections.
  4. If you'd like to save a log of your server connections, select the Save a log of my server connections to help troubleshoot connection problems check box.
