    Window live has locked me out of my hotmail account I have had since 1996.

    Always been the same password and never a problem.

    Keep telling me to go through security to get my password then tells me the reminder has been sent to my hotmail account:Doh:I cant get to my hotmail account because I am locked out.

    Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hi John

    If you are using Windows XP - can't you set your system back a couple of days to a time when it did work properly?

    Try using another PC or laptop! and then maybe change password, or just set up a new hotmail account.

    If you try and log on too many times at a go, it will lock you out for a couple of hours or so.

    I agree, googlemail is by far safer than hotmail and their spam control is terrific too.
    In the mean time, i experienced this problem with windows live on several occaissions and i had to go to their passport.net and set the password up again. I changed it to the same password as previous but with a number at the end, saved it then changed it back again to the one i am familiar with.
    I think their old passort net site has changed but the priciple will still be the same to change the password thereby re-installing it into their database.

    I had a problem with my hotmail account but was of my own making :Doh:

    I don't know why but when I cleaned up my computer and lost all my passwords when it came to my hotmail account I wrongly typed in @hotmail.co.uk instead of @hotmail.com:Doh::Doh::Doh:

    Finally came to my senses and realised my mistake:thumb:

    Regards Pat

    Another problem I have is sometimes not everytime I click on my favourites link to Hotmail and a message comes up "Enable Cookies" however by simply clicking on the link again all is ok:Confused::Confused::Confused:

    Also if I log on to Hotmail later on items/spam I have deleted are still there when I try to delete them again message says can't find them?????:Confused::Confused::Confused:

    Regards Pat
