I have a Yahoo account and I don't remember a secret question.

I did once have a lot of trouble trying to get into my account but clearing the cookies and history from my computer allowed me to access the account again. It used to be a pain needing to log in periodically as their system never seemed able to remember my password, but since I opted for phone verification I have had no problems (so far)

I have been no real help but I do send my sympathies....

If your password and secret questions yhave been changed. I would suggest going to the sign-in wizard, and select the option for "My account may have been compromised".

Logini have had my facebook account hacked and i need a new account a.s.a.p


An account on a social networking website such as Facebook can be a prime target for hackers. If you have lost access to your Facebook account because it has been hacked, your first priority is to regain access to the account before the hacker can send messages to your friends that could result in their accounts being compromised as well.

Facebook provides tools that you can use to recover a compromised account, based on whether or not your personal email account has been hacked as well.If You Can Access Your Email

1. Open a Web browser and navigate to the Facebook account recovery page using the Resource link.

Click the link after Step 1 on the page.

2. Click the link after Step 1 on the new page to begin the process of resetting your Facebook password.

Click in the box under "Enter Your Facebook Username," and type the name that you use when logging in to Facebook.

Alternatively, use the first box to enter the email address or phone number associated with your account.
Click the "Search" button.

A security check window appears.
Type the words that appear on the screen, and then click "Submit."

Click the "Reset Password" button.

Facebook sends an email to the address linked to your account.
The email address is displayed on the screen.

If the email address displayed is not your own, it means that the hacker who compromised your account changed the email address associated with it. If this is the case, follow the steps in the section "If You Cannot Access Your Email."

Check your email address for a message titled "Facebook Password Reset Confirmation."
Open the email and click the link contained within.

The Web browser navigates to the Facebook password reset page.

Type the password that you would like to use for your Facebook account, and then type it a second time to confirm that you entered it correctly.

Click "Change Password" to log in to the account.

If You Cannot Access Your Email

Open a Web browser and navigate to the Facebook account recovery page using the Resource link.

Click the link after Step 2 on the page.

Click the first link on the new page if your email account has been hacked and you no longer have access to it, or click the second link if you followed the steps in the section.
"If You Can Access Your Email" and the email address displayed was not your own.

Type the phone number or username of your Facebook account, and then click "Search."
If you are unable to get a match, type your name plus the name of one of your Facebook friends.

Type the words displayed in the security check box, and then click "Submit."
This brings you to a Web form titled "My Account Has Been Compromised."

Fill in the information requested on the form, including your Facebook username, your name, any email addresses associated with the account, your own email address and a description of the problem.

Click "Submit."
This sends a message to Facebook notifying its support staff that your account has been compromised.

Before unlocking your account, a member of the Facebook staff will contact you to confirm your identity.

I cant get too my facebook account


When you are blocked by someone on Facebook, there are few options to unblock yourself.
In fact, unless the person unblocks you on their own, you can't become unblocked on your own.
There is one thing that you can do, that requires setting up a new Facebook account.
You can use your same name, but you must sign up with a different email address.
Once the new account is set up, you can proceed to contact the person who blocked you.
Keep in mind that the person may see your online attempts to contact her as harassment and may block your second account as well.

Go to facebook.com and fill in the "Sign Up" section.
Enter an alternative email address that isn't attached to an existing Facebook account in the "Your Email" and "Re-enter Email" fields.
Click the "Sign Up" button once.
Enter the Captcha security code in the text box and click the "Sign Up" button a second time.

Complete the Facebook account registration and find friends, add profile information and upload a profile picture.
These items are optional and you may add them at a later time.
Click the "Save & Continue" button to finish.
Go to your alternative email account and retrieve the Facebook confirmation message.
You will need to click a link in that email before your new Facebook account becomes active.
Once the account is active, you can contact the person who blocked your other account.

Somebuddy can access my acount


Many times, you can recover a hacked or compromised Yahoo! account after using on-site password-recovery tools.
The process can take a few minutes to complete, but once you are finished you'll be back in your account.
If the password-recovery method does not work, then you can always contact the security group at Yahoo! Inc. via email.
Of course, you'll need access to a secondary email address to message the company's support team.

Type "login.yahoo.com" into the browser's URL address field.
You are greeted by the Yahoo! account sign in page.
Click the "I can't access my account" link in the box on the right side.
Select the "My account may have been compromised" option from the choice of sign in problems.
Click the "Next" button.
Type your Yahoo! ID and security code on the next page.
Click "Next" to continue.
Select an alternative email address to send a reset link to.
This only works if you previously added a secondary email address.
If not or the alternative email address has been tampered with, then select the "I can't access any of the above" option.
Click "Next."
Answer the security questions on the next few pages.
You will usually have to answer at least two security questions.
Enter a new password and repeat the password when prompted.
Click the "Next" button to finalize the password-reset process.

Access your E-mail account from a different computer and then try sending the email to your friends. Your computer is probably infected by an automatic E-mail sending virus/malware. Update your anti-virus software and then do a FULL virus scan of your computer. If you don't have an anti-virus software, you should get one. You can get some for free or free trial. Avast and AVG are highly recommended.
