Reboot and while its rebooting keep tapping on F8 to go to Safe Mode. Once in Safe Mode select "Last known good configuration" and press Enter. If that doesn't work continue to go to Safe Mode and do System Restore to an earlier date of before this happened

Hello,my name Tairi Charlie Im having problem opening my email" -- because I forgot my identity answere


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. also you might try this link http://windows.microsoft.com/en-AU/windows/outlook/account-temporarily-blocked

Logon Change


Enable Log-On Screen


Windows, by default, is set to show the Welcome screen during startup.

To enable the log-on screen to show, go to "Start" menu and select "Control Panel".

In the control panel, click on "User Accounts".


In the "User Accounts" dialog-box, click "Change the way users log on or off" and uncheck the "Welcome Screen" option.

Click "Apply Options" to save the changes.

Change Log-On Screen Background Color


To change the log-on screen background color, go to the "Start" menu and click on "Run".

In the run dialog-box, type "mspaint" as the name of the program to "Open".


Click on "OK". In the "Paint" window that opens, select "Colors" from the main menu and click on "Edit Colors". In the "Edit Colors" dialog-box, select "Define custom colors".


Here pick the color of your choice and note down the "Red", "Green" and "Blue" values.

Write down these values somewhere.


Click "Cancel" and close the paint window without saving. Now, go to the "Start" menu, click "Run" and enter "regedit" as the name of the program to "Open".


In the registry editor, navigate to HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\CONTROL PANEL\COLORS and double-click the "Background" string.


In the "Edit String" dialog-box that opens up, change the values in the "Value data" field to the red, green and blue color values that you wrote down (e.g. 75 78 173).

In the "Edit String" dialog-box that opens up, enter the full path and filename of the image that you want to use as the background. The image must be in .bmp format. Click "OK" and close the registry editor. Log off to see the changes. hope this helps

Recently, my cable provider sent a tech to check out my internet service. While he was on the computer, he INCREASED the size of my screen. I didn't realize the screen had enlarged until my husband got on...


mcdevito75 here, It sound like the first tech. simply increased the zoom on your Monitor screen for his eay viewing and failed to restore it for you. Here"s how, on your screen in the lower right hand corner you should see 100% or 75%, this is the zoom, left clicl on the number and then check 100% ------ or even easier, left click on View at the top of your screen, then click zoom, now check the 100%. you can also check at View, the text size, this is the size of the letters on your screen. click on text size for large or larger or small. Hope this helps.

I'm holding original email address: tassanu_boxing@yahoo.com , but I can't access it for a week. I don't know why. I believe I put correct Yahoo ID and password. I have saved nearly 200 email...


IF you havent accessed your Yahoo id for long time, when you try to access it, you will get an Authorisation ( Verification code ). you have to enter it.

logon to www.mail.yahoo.com and enter your email id - without @yahoo.com and enter password, you will find a small window below the username and password to enter the code, enter the code and it should let you access your emails.

Before doing this, Try Clearing Cookies and Temporary internet files from Internet Explorer.

Open Internet Explorer - Click on Tools on Top bar ( menu ) click Internet Options and Click Delete Cookies/ Temp files or Delete all Button and click OK

Only get a blank blue screen when I turn on PC. All seems dead!


Try booting into Safe Mode. You can do this by rebooting your computer. As soon as it turns on, you should see some kind of splash screen or logo like "Acer" or "Dell". When you see this, start tapping the F8 key about twice each second. Hopefully, you'll get the Boot menu for Windows. Select "Safe mode" from the list and see if it boots properly. If it does, then you have a software issue like a virus, bad drivers, or faulty software installed. If it won't boot into Safe Mode, you may have a compromised operating system or failing hard drive. Give that a try and see what happens.

Cant open attachments


That's not a problem with Vista, rather it's most likely a problem with the web server. Make sure you entered all your web server information in correctly (pop3, SMPT, etc), and make sure your mail server supports MS Outlook 2007. Just double check everything. If that doesn't work, try completely un-installing and re-installing Outlook 2007. If all fails, try downloading a 3rd party mail application and see if that works.
