    You could try choosing a password reminder but you need to fill in your e-mail address and country and then answer your secret question.

    Just mail hotmail customer service, this happened to me a while back as well, i managed to reacht his online form, on the customer services part of the hotmail site, they asked a few questions like what a few of my previous passwords were, country, and the email addresses of some contacts on my list. I answered all of it and they mailed me a new password. Pretty simple.

    If someone can get your secret question, then they can gain access to your account, so I recommend doing the following:

    Secret Question;

    which is why i often don't bother with the secret question. i'm a member of loads of sites, and i always use 1 of 2 passwords. So i never forget my password cos there is only two possiblties

    Well i've just found in my inbox e-mails about stealing passwords, which i've never recieved before!
    Maybe theres a bug, or maybe its spam people are actually using.

    Happened to me too, it isnt the password though, it keeps saying something to do with my internet connection on 6.1, on windows messenger it says pass.

    but when i try log into hotmail it jus goes to a error screen instea of wrong password, also when i try to register a new one it does the same, i think it may be a bug or a virus


    Any ideas???

    I've figured it out, its a virus thats going round alot of people on msn, if you are on xp you can easily get it working again by using system restore as the guy further up the forum rightfully said. Just go to search, find files or programs and the type 'system restore'

    make sure u take it back about a month though becasue a couple of days doesnt work.

    dunno how to get rid of it on non xp comps, i dont think it effects non xp tho, but i may b wrong
