This happend from time to time, as I do not know who is provider of your e-mail services, I cannot advice any closer.

Most providers have homepage where you can log in and change your access and e-mail password, some of them do that over the phone, you need to either, contact your e-mail provider (usually your internet provider) or they contact page and change it.

If this is Yahoo, Qmail, MSN or any other free public account, again, you need to log in on they homepage, and then change password. You need your previous password in most cases to change it!

It is possible to get hacked or click on a virus that locks you out of your Facebook account.
The social network uses preventive security measures to stop malicious software or hackers from harming the site.

Sometimes these countermeasures are too sensitive and cause everyday users to get locked out. If you were recently locked out, due to a technical glitch, user error or compromised account, then you can use Facebook's automated compromised reporting tool.

In most cases, you'll regain access to your account within a few minutes.
Type "facebook.com/hacked" in the address bar of a Web browser.

Press "Enter" on your keyboard.
Click the "My Account is Compromised" button to continue.

Fill in the form on the next page by choosing one of three identification methods: email address or phone number, Facebook username, or your name along with a friend's name.

Click the "Continue" button to continue onto the next page.
Enter your Facebook account's password, and click "Continue."

On the next page, the website notifies you that your account is locked out, which it may or may not have already been.

Type a "New Password" and "Confirm Password."
When done typing, click the "Change Password" button.

Click the check box for each email address associated with your account, confirming you have changed the password for your email address.

This is a security precaution. Click "Continue" to move to the next step.
Review if there were changes to Account Settings, and then click "Continue."

Click the "Log In" button. Your Facebook account is unlocked, and you may proceed to use it as normal.

Cannot login to facebook


Facebook locks accounts suspected of being hacked or accessed for nefarious purposes. Facebook also locks users out of an account for too many incorrect attempts logging in with the wrong password or email address. Depending on the reason for the disabling of your account, you can access different contact forms that will help you unlock your Facebook account.

Open the Facebook homepage and click "Forgot Your Password?" under the login and password text boxes if you know your Facebook username or the email you use to log in. Complete all the fields with the requested information and click "Search." Use the link "I Cannot Identify My Account" and click "Submit" to get help from Facebook to unlock your account if you don't know your email address and password. Enter the CAPTCHA letters and numbers to proceed to the next step and click "Identify Your Account." Click "This Is My Account" to continue with the changing of your password. Add check boxes next to the email addresses or mobile phone numbers to which you wish the password reset code to be sent. The full email address or phone number is not displayed for privacy. Click "Reset Code." Access your reset code from your email address, and enter the code provided into the "Enter Password Reset Code" page. Click "Submit Code" and enter a new password to access your account. Compromised Account Open the Facebook homepage and click "Help" in the lower right-hand corner to access the form to report a compromised account. Click the link to the left for "Browse Help Topics" and choose the link for "Login and Password" to access the "Report Compromised Account" form. Scroll down and choose the link that says: "My email address or my Facebook account has been compromised." Select the appropriate scenario and follow the directions for reporting a compromised account based on if you've been phished or not. It may take awhile before you get access back to your Facebook account after it's locked.

My wifes yahoo email ( lynchlynda@yahoo.com) is sending out *** drug advertisements to everyone attached to her yahoo address book. I have run Windows 7 security through our laptop but it did not pick up...


First off, change the password to the account and make it very difficult to guess by using upper and lowercase letters and also use numbers. This may help to ward off any outside access to the account. There are computer programs that go through and try every variation and combination of words in the dictionary to try and break it. This software is capable of trying thousands of passwords a second. The next step would be to change the security questions.
Sometimes, when and email account is compromised, it is compromised permanently. It may be wise to abandon the account, but first see if the problem is solved by tightening up security. It may also be helpful to notify Yahoo of the breach.

How can i contact the facebook helpcenter to conform that my email address and password in facebook dab been hacked and compromised by other person?


If your account has been hacked and there is access to your login email address, reset your password by selecting the "Forgot" link that appears above the Password field on the Login page. When you have done this, an email is sent to you with steps for this process.
If your login email has been compromised or changed, and your account has been hacked, then you need to send Facebook a status update. This will allow them to look into it further. http://www.facebook.com/help/?faq=15838
