Yahoo is a bad place. A personal opinion.
Delete the yahoo chat and all yahoo stuff. use search to find all and use ADD/REMOVE in control panel.
Go to yahoo after all is done and do a clean install.
Mastersage!

I have forgotten my email address how do I find it


Important information can sometimes be sent to an old email address that you no longer use.

For instance, if you registered a domain name, a website hosting account, a PayPal, or eBay account with an old email address but forgot to update your account when you switched email providers, then messages sent by those sites will be overlooked.

Finding old email accounts is not that difficult, especially because email users tend to use the same user name, or variations of it, for all email accounts.

If you know, or have an idea of what the old user name was, then retrieving, or changing the password is simple, but each email server uses a different user name or password retrieval method.

Call your internet provider and tell them you have forgotten your email account.

Give them your name and account number, found on your monthly statement.
In some cases the Internet provider will want to email this information to you.

Be sure they send the information to the alternate email address which you can access.
You don't want them to send messages to the email address you can't currently access.

The internet provider will ask you the security question you selected when signing up for the account.

If you can't remember what you selected, then the customer service representative may ask for a user name, your address, or the telephone number under which you registered the account.

Reset the password with the customer service representative over the phone.
The representative will help you change the user name if needed and reset the password so you can access the account again.
Yahoo Email

Go to the Yahoo mail page which asks you for your Yahoo ID.

Click on "I can't access my account."

Make the appropriate selection from the choices.
If you choose "I can't remember my user ID" then Yahoo will have you answer the "secret questions" they asked when you signed up.

These questions will be something like: "What was your first car?" or "Who was your third grade teacher?" If you answer coincides with the answer you gave when you signed up for the account.

Yahoo will give you your user ID.

After recovering your user ID, click on "I can't access my account" again and select "I can't remember my password," then click next and you will be taken to a change password screen, where you can change your password.

Start using your old Yahoo email account.
MSN Hotmail Email

Go to the Hotmail, or the MSN ID page, where it asks for your user name and password
Enter your user ID.

Unfortunately, MSN requires you to remember the user ID.

Click on "I have forgotten password"

Choose whether you want your password mailed to you or changed.
Unless you have registered a secondary email, if you choose email then the password will be sent to the account you can't access.

If you want to change password then you will be asked the security questions you specified when you registered the account.

Questions are something similar to, "Mothers birth place?" You may also be asked for your zip code, or address.

Enter a new password.

Enter anew password when the MSN ID page loads again and access your old email account.
Gmail Email

Access the Gmail ID page and click on "I can't access my account."

Choose the appropriate selection from the page that loads.
Options include, "I have forgotten my password" and "I have forgotten my user name."

If you select "I forgot user name," then click on "retrieve user name page," which you will see further down on the page.

Enter the alternate e-mail with which you registered the account.
The user name will be sent to that email.

Select "I have forgotten my password" If you know your user name then choose and click on "retrieve password" page.

Enter your user name on the page that comes up and then answer the confidential question that is asked.

Send password reset instructions to an alternate email and access your old Gmail email account.

Cant access my accounts


Find Hidden Email Accounts on a Computer
Trust in a relationship, whether parent-child, between spouses or at work, is sometimes put to the test.
When one party feels that trust has been abused, he might want to ease his doubts.
New technology makes it possible to effectively hide email accounts, but most people do not use or understand this technology.

Check the history on your Web browser for free email sites like mail.yahoo.com, hotmail.com or gmail.com.
Most of the time nontechnical users do not realize how much information is contained in the browser history.
When searching the history, most free email accounts will show up with the various user names that were used to connect to them.
It is easy to differentiate between regular email accounts and new suspicious ones.
Check her regular email accounts.
Most free email accounts have the option to enter a trusted email address to be used in case the user loses her password, or to warn her if that information changes on the account.
Checking for such email is easy and quick.
Do a search on the account for words like "welcome," "yahoo.com" and "gmail.com" to check for communication from free email providers.

Check for instant messaging logs.
All major free email accounts have free instant messaging such as yahoo messenger, msn and gmail talk.
Each of those messaging services have logging options that save the live chats to the hard drive. If you have an instant messaging software installed, check to see if the logging option is turned on.
Check in the software where the log is saved and go to that location.
Installing messaging software usually creates one folder named after each account to store the logs.
Check for virtual machines on the computer.
More technical people might be tempted to install a virtual machine that allows them to have a dedicated operating system to use as their own.
If you have a virtual machine software such as Vmware, Virtualbox or Virtual PC, try to boot any operating systems present and do the same searches done on the main computer.
Install a key logger on the computer to monitor activity taking place during anonymous browsing. Modern browsers have an anonymous browsing mode that does not record anything done while turned on.
It is easy, however, to install a key logger that will record everything the user types on the keyboard.
It will allow you to discover any email accounts accessed during anonymous sessions.

Whatever you are trying to do, sounds a bit "iffy". It is illegal to use someone elses name and password.
Use one name and one password, then you can remember it.
