Hi,

I am not sure the OS installed on your notebook. Assuming it is XP OS, I am providing the steps.

If you have forget the login password of your account in XP then nothing to worry. There will be default account in XP called "Administartor"

By default there will be no password for this account. We can access this account from same mode.

To boot in safemode, restart the notebook and keep pressing the F8 key at BIOS logo screen.

Then it will give you the Advanced boot options. From those options, select "Safe Mode"

At Welcome screen you can see the Admistrator icon. Click on it to login. After booting into Safemode, open Control Panel, User Accounts and reset the password of your previous account.

Hope this works for you.

I log into my g-mail account,another persons name & address keep appearing


HI Sharon,

Sounds like your email account with gmail has been hacked and under control by another person. However, im not sure about what you wrote about you logged into your email account by using your own email and password with gmail then ....what happened did you logged in successfully or not?
if you did logged in your gmail account successfully then after you logged in you see your profile name has been changed to another person name and so on the address also has been changed too then it definitely means your gmail account has been hacked by another person who did know your email address and password and that person logged into your gmail account and he or she changed your profile info and gain control to use your gmail account. This issues are not difficult all you need to do is logged in to your gmail account then on the upright conner you would see profile name of you or may be of another person name just click on it and click on MY ACCOUNT from there all you need to do is to review all of personal information and make correction back your your own profile. Once you finish to make correction then the last step is you MUST CHANGE YOUR GMAIL PASSWORD so that the hacker no longer can access your gmail account anymore.
Now you need to do a second step and this is very important it regarding why and how the hacker could gaining control of your gmail account because some of the computers you did use to get online and logged in to your gmail account ( it could be your home computer or laptop or it could be any computer outside your home but you did one time use it to check your email) Those computers or laptops you has used they has been infected by trojan or malware that is why the hacker could pull out your personal info such as email address or password. Now we are talking about your computer or laptop at home : to prevent those hacker again can gain control to access your computer without your knowledge so that they can pull out your new gmail password ! After you fix your gmail profile and change new gmail password you need to do next is to clean up and remove the virus, malware, trojan horse ....etc whatever it is which infected inside your computer. Then you will be safe.

If you can not do it by yourself ( to remove infected file on your computer) then you really need professional help to get your computer services by a computer tech.

Good Luck.

Iwant to unsubscribe from existing account and start a new one with a different password


you don't need to unsubscribe. The person who has the account name and the password, is the only one who can access. If you want to stop using the account it would be wise to delete everything in the site first.
Then depending on what account is was, shut it down and never use it.
Perhaps your grandson already took over your account, without telling you, and then you won't be able to delete anything. Just setup a noter page with your name and your own password. Don't tell anyone your password, or you risk the next account to be hacked too.

I have forgotton my facebook pass word


Only one person is supposed to know your password. If you forgot it, when logging in, on that page is a button, forgot password or something like that. Press the button and you will get an email, on the address you gave the site while setting up your account. Follow the instructions in the mail and everything will be ok in just a few minutes.
If someone hacked your account and did change the settings, you don't get an e-mail, you won't be able to claim the account. You have to setup a new account.

I am unable to open my mail account?


The reason behind not being open email account is, some times yahoo web application automatically malfunctions.
Instead of loggin through a web email, log on Yahoo IM and open your e-mail from there.
If you have not forgotton your user name and password then this is the easiest way for e-mails.

System won't go past profile page..stuck


It seems that the Guest account profile is corrupted because of which you are unable to log in as like in previously.

In the Profile Login page, hold the Ctrl and Alt keys and press the Del key twice.

This will give you a window where you need to enter the User name and Password.

Enter the User name as administrator and leave the password column blank if you have not set any Password to the administrator account or enter the Administrator password if you have set any.

Now once you are loged into the Administrator account, create a new User from the Control Panel > User Accounts.

Set the required limitatios to the account like limited account or administrator account and log off from the administrator account.

Now, you should have the newly created user account available in the login page. Select it and you should be able to login.
