Ever heard the phrase " the internet is forever"? well this is where it comes into play, there are many websites and search engines that link to each other, that being the case one site or engine will have obtained certain information from where the information was hosted (yahoo any information you make public), after obtaining this information the site or engine will then create it own instance of the information, this allows easy access to the information vs having to navigate to the location of the information, without rambling there is no way of telling who might have an instance of the information and how they may share it, even tho links to the information no longer exist. If you can still access the yahoo account then contact them to ensure its closed and ask how long it would take to pull information related to your account, furthermore closing an account does not ensure sub-service has been disabled or deleted, you can attempt to google for the information, once you find the several links to the information contact the company or site owners and ask that the information is removed, but just so you know there is no safe or sure way to remove information from the internet, it's forever--Good Luck.

My tablet is sayin no connection wen im connected to wifi cant download nowt... Help

It would appear that your tablet can connect to whatever wireless access point you are trying to use, but this access point is preventing your access to the Internet probably because it needs a Username and Password to let you through. Check and make sure that you have all the relevant information to connect completely.
The items you may need are
Wireless access key
Wireless encryption method
Username & Password for Internet access
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya

I cannot reset my password

Im presuming its your internet connection password ?

Your Internet service provider (ISP) requires a username and password to access service features, including Internet and email.

Your ISP should provide this information when you set up your Internet service.

Typically, once you complete the setup and save the information, your router or modem transmits it behind the scenes when you try to access the Internet.

As a result, the username and password can be easily forgotten because they are not used daily.

If you reset your router or simply forget the password, gaining access to network resources and the Internet becomes a challenge.

Call your ISP's technical support department.

Many ISPs set a default username and password for their routers.

If you didn't change the username and password, your ISP can provide the original information.

Before you hang up, make sure the information is correct by entering it and trying to connect to the Internet.

If the information is incorrect and you still cannot get a connection, keep the information for later reference.

Call your router's manufacturer.

The manufacturer of your router sets a username and password prior to shipping the device to your ISP.

Look at the router for the contact information of the manufacturer.

Call their customer service or technical support department and ask for the default information.

Reset your router.

If you changed your router's username and password and cannot remember what you entered, you may have to reset the router.

Insert the resource CD into your computer's CD drive.

When the software installation program starts, search the screen for "Resources" or "Documentation" or "User Manual."

Click the documentation link and search the table of contents for resetting the router.

When you reset the router, the username and password return to the default set by your ISP or manufacturer.

Enter the information provided by your ISP or manufacturer.

Hope this helps.

My router quit working when i changed internet providers

You need to access the router settings:
* connect your computer via ethernet cable from the back of your computer to the back of your router* open a browser (mozilla firefox, google chrome, internet explorer)* type on the address bar (that's where you type the www address)* press enter* you will be routed to the router page* select setup/interface setup* read down the information stated* look for the username and password (this will be provided to you by your service provider)* type the username and password in the correct fields then press saved.
The reason why your router is not working is the username embeded in your router settings, it might be still the old username and password from your previous internet service provider, this should be corrected for you to have complete connection.
Thanks for choosing

How do I delete a twitter account ?

How To Deactivate Your Twitter Account

Deactivating your account permanently removes your profile and information from Twitter. Deactivated profiles will take 30 days to clear from our internal systems. While the deactivation is being completed, usernames or email addresses cannot be used in the creation of a new account. Before you do it, you should know...
  • This is final and permanent.
  • You do not need to deactivate your account to change your username; change it easily and at any time in your account settings.
  • Unless you change your username and email before deactivation, you will not be able to use them on a new account for 30 days.
  • Account restoration is not available at this time.
To deactivate your account:
  1. Log in to Twitter
  2. Click Settings from the drop-down menu at the top right of your Twitter account.
  3. Click 'deactivate my account' at the bottom of the page (shown below).
  4. Enter your password when prompted.
  5. Verify that you really want to do it and voila, it's done.
To free up your username or email address before deactivating your account:
  1. Go to your Settings page from the drop-down menu at the top right of your Twitter account.
  2. In the username field, choose a new username (Try adding an underscore or a number to it).
  3. In the email address field, change your email address to a new address you also own.
  4. Confirm the new email address via a link we send to you (very important!).
  5. Proceed with deactivation as listed above. Your email and username will now be free to use on a new account should you choose to sign up again during the 30 day deactivation period.

Note: we change your settings immediately, and any/all old links appearing in a Google or other search index thus lead to error pages. However, these old links appear because Google and other search engines have cached old content in their search index. Twitter has no control over this, but you can send them a request to take it down.
