If you have been using the web interface to access your Hotmail e-mail, then your contacts are likely lost, unless you have a backup copy on your PC. If you ever exported them from Hotmail, then you can import them back into Hotmail.

There is also a small chance that if you contact Hotmail support, they might be able to restore them if they have a backup copy and you explain your situation; however, it's unlikely that they will spend the time to do so.

If you have been accessing your e-mail via an e-mail client on your desktop, like Outlook or Outlook Express, then there is a chance that you might be able to restore them from the web interface via the Export function.

Good luck.

Where is address book -- need to recover?


To know more about the software https://www.restoretools.com/addressbookrestore.html
ou pst file, containing your emails and contacts, will be found at:
C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook.
Enable "Show hidden files" to see it. If Windows will not repair the installation you can reinstall Windows 7, selecting Upgrade as the option. This would preserve your installed programs, data and settings, but you would need to reinstall all updates. This assumes your drive and system are good and not infected. Read more information here

My face book is bloce becuas face book teem did that i dont know why and i cant open it any more i have a friends there and my photos really i want my face book


Good Day FAti!

Facebook can block or disable an account even if without notification from the user, if they suspected that an account is phished and there is unusual activity like sending emails in a large group of people, then, they will disable your account immediately.

ilhem, I do suggest you go to:
http://www.facebook.com/help/contact.php?show_form=disabled
fill up the form and click the Submit button.

or

You can write to disabled@facebook.com, express your interest on recovering your account. Explain to them why your account should not be disabled.



Please comeback and let me know what happens.
Don't forget to give this answer a 4 thumbs up rating if this will fix your Facebook problem.
Please click the YES button below if this helps.
Thank you for asking Fixya

My hotmail account has been blocked


I would get another one or contact Hotmail support for blocked email support and solution, please read below for another option if you just cannot get another account and have to have the old one.

Hotmail accounts do not get blocked unless the account has been used to mass mailing or other illicit use. If you did not mass mail or other illicit behavior, I suggest that your account was hacked.

If your MSN/Hotmail Account has been hacked!

If your MSN Account has been hacked, go to MSN email support:
https://support.live.com/eform.aspx?productKey=wlid&ct=eformts&scrx=1

You have to give all information about your problem and about your identity:
* Your e-mail (the "Windows Live ID").
* Your first name and full name.
* Your date of birth (month / day / year).
* Your country.
* The state, province or department in which you reside.
* Your zip code.
* The IP address of each computer used to access your account, or the most commonly used. To find your IP address, visit : http://www.monip.org/
* The answer to your secret question (if you don't remember it, notify it).
* Emergency address email registered for this account (if no emergency address, notify it).
* Your Internet service provider (at work or at home).
* The date and approximate time of your last login.
* The information below:
o For Windows Live Hotmail user :
? Examples of files names which you created in addition to those existing by defect
? Examples of contacts contained in your address book.
? Examples of old email titles contained in your inbox folders or messages.
o For Windows Live Messenger user :
? Examples of contacts contained in your contact list.
? The nickname under which you appear on Windows Live Messenger.
VERY IMPORTANT ! Write your request in a clear and understandable English, avoiding the SMS language, spelling and abbreviations !

Remember and do not forget that this is the only way you can expect to recover your account!
I do hope that this assisted you with this matter! Thanks for using FixYa! John

Need new pass word


Go to www.facebook.com, click on the 'forgotten your password' link above the log in box. Enter the details needed, and click 'reset my password'

You WILL need to know your email address to retrieve the email Facebook will send you.
If you don't know your email address password, recover this first by going to the website of whoever your email address is with. For example if you're with hotmail go to www.hotmail.com, if you're with yahoo, go to www.yahoo.com.

Once you have recovered your facebook password and logged on, you can then change you email address by clicking on 'account', then 'account settings' then clicking the 'change' button next to 'email'

Hope this helps, Gillian

Received a message that I needed to comfirm my address. I did but nothing happened until they blocked from face book.


When you replied to the email, did you include your log in information? If so, this may have been a phishing email. The email was probably not from who you thought it was. And, you sent them the information to access your account.

First, you need to change your password for your email account. Next, contact Facebook and let them know that your Facebook account may have been hacked and you can no longer access it.

If you believe your Facebook account has been hacked or phished, please follow this link.
