    "lost"?



    Do you have the "button" style login where you can see all the available usernames? If so, is the name just missing? Or do you type a username and password? If so, are you unable to remember the username and/or password.



    Windows XP or Vista?

if you lost the old email address, you can't add it to the new one - or vice versa.
anyway, to add the new one to the old one, you would need to access the old one but you said you don't have that one any more.
personally, I wouldn't trust microsoft with my emails as they're always going wrong or getting hacked.

If FB can\'t help, nobody else can. Your account is yours as long as you can keep your password safe. someone tried to hijack my email address, by sending mails something was wrong with my account and to make sure they could set things right I had to send them my password. If I had answered those mails I would have lost my account for sure.

If you try to make an account with your account name, and FB says it is already in use, and you don\'t have the password. you can be sure you can\'t access it anymore. FB will not kick the current user out of the account.

Perhaps the account could be accessed by you, if you only knew what password you gave it.



To make sure someone is using it. try someone to become friends with your account name and look who is answering.

Yahoo.com tells me that my password has expired. What do I need to do?


If you ever find yourself with a locked Yahoo account, it's likely due to multiple incorrect password attempts.

As a security measure, Yahoo's email and chat client servers automatically lock your account to prevent unauthorized access after there have been multiple invalid password entries.

The ID Lock security measure safeguards a Yahoo account from unauthorized users who try to access your account without permission.Cause

After multiple incorrect password entries to a Yahoo account, the server automatically sets a lock on it.
This happens because every time a Yahoo Account holder logs into his account, he's logged in with a cookie.

A cookie is an information packet that proves you are the valid account holder.
However, when a person tries to access an account with many failed attempts, the cookies expires, triggering the ID lock on the account.
24-Hour Wait

A Yahoo account holder must wait up to 24 hours before accessing the account again.
The lock on the account expires within 24 hours from the time the account was locked.

Unlock Using Another Server Since Yahoo! has many servers around the world, a user can log into his account by visiting a different Yahoo server address. (See Below.)
http://thingsaboutcomputer.blogspot.com/2009/03/how-to-unlock-yahoo-when-account-is.html

Copy and paste a Yahoo! server URL into the address bar of your Internet browser to access the website.
Enter the Yahoo! ID and password in their respective fields, and click on "Log in" to access your yahoo account.
Avoid Yahoo Account Locks
To prevent future Yahoo! account locks, a user should limit the number of times he tries to enter a password.

If an account holder has forgotten his password, he should use the "Forgot Passsword" feature to reset the password.

Window cannot access the specific device,path,file. dont have appropiate permission


Ok this happens when the user account don't have the permission to acces the folder, disk etc.
Verify that the account you are using have the permission to access it. Right click the object you are trying to access and choose properties, then security (I don't know your window versions but is very similar in all versions). Check if the user account show in the box and the type of permission. If is not in the list should be add. To add you need administrator account privileges. çlick edit and add the user and the type of permission to grant. gabytek_1.gif

We bought a new house and I had my pc down for three months. i forgot my user password and now I can't access some stuff i have on here. i need to change my oassword. HELP


Is this the main account? Do you have access to another administrator account? If so you may just want to access another account with administrator capabilities, and any needed files can be copied out of your users folders.
Thanks,

I'm assuming that you're using Windows OS? If so, here are the steps to reset your password:
  1. First reboot Windows XP in safe mode by re-starting the computer and pressing F8 repeatedly as the computer starts up.
  2. Then (in safe mode) click Start and then click Run. In the open box type "control userpasswords2" (without the quotes, of course)
  3. You will now have access to all the user accounts, including the administrators account and will be able to reset the lost password.
  4. Just click the administrators user account (or the target user's account), and then click Reset Password. You will need to add a new password in the New password and the Confirm new password boxes, and confirm by clicking OK.
  5. All done, you have recovered the lost password
Hope you'll get it resolved soon ;-)

I get the message Value cannot be null parameter name: path 1


  1. In Windows Explorer, locate the application folder or the virtual directory that contains the content (for example, D:\MyWebApplications\Users\Main\App1).
  2. Right-click the root folder (MyWebApplications in this case), and then click Properties.
  3. On the Security tab, click Add.
  4. Type ComputerName\ASPNET (for example, on a computer that is named Webdev, type Webdev\ASPNET), and then click OK. Add the impersonated accounts if impersonation is turned on.
  5. Grant the following permissions for the ASPNET account (and for the impersonated accounts if impersonation is turned on):
    • Read & Execute
    • List Folder Contents
    • Read

  6. Click OK to close the Properties dialog box and to save the changes.
If you have to grant more restrictive permissions to these folders, follow these steps after you complete step 4:
  1. Click Advanced to access special permissions or advanced settings.
  2. Click the Permissions tab, and then select the permission entry for the ASPNET (or other impersonated account).
  3. Click View/Edit.
  4. Make sure that you grant only the List Folder/Read Data permission.
