If you want to get one. You can check it out .

Lost / Losing E-mails On Hotmail Account

I have lost the vast majority of my emails on my hotmail account and the windowslivehelp forums are not allowing me to log back in and reply to the thread that i created. I can therefore not provide the email address for the forum moderators to take action on my problem. I was unable to find another avenue that i could pursue, which lead me to my posting here. Is there anything that can be done to recover the lost emails? They disappeared overnight and were definitely not deleted by myself.

Outlook Hotmail Issue

I have for a long time never had to pay for outlook express it came as an added feature with the computer. The thing with outlook is that it also automatically picked up and ran all my programs needed to open an e-mail. I have noted that of late i have not been able to this , i take it due to updates changing the config. So it will not. I could add e-mail addresses easily and forward e-mail with all attachments running properly and not just a blank. I have not been able to do this with hotmail. Well back to basics.

Trojan Hotmail Problem

I run windows defender, symantec antivirus and malwarebytes' anti-malware. The first two didn't remove a problem i had but the final one discovered two trojan and removed them. The problem was in hotmail. It was sending out messages i didn't create. Before i ran the malware program i had deleted my address book to stop which helped. After running the malware program i had entered an address back into the address book and lo and behold it was doing it again. So i ran the three programs again and nothing was found. What is the solution to let  me be able to use the address book in hotmail again?

Hotmail Freezes On Screen

I cannot access my email account email removed for privacy as of yesterday 29th july. I access this ok in the usual way and my inbox appears but i cannot access any emails. I notice that there is a new configuration to the email now and wondered if this had anything to do with it. My wife on the other hand can access her email via msn in the usual way. I have closed down my side bar thinking that this may be using up computer power but i don't really think this is the problem as this made no difference. Any answers?

User Account Name

I just installed win 7 home premium from using the win 7 ultimate rc. I backed up my files on the old system where the user name was "old". When i installed win 7 home premium i named it "new". Now when i restored my data, under the "users" folder the restore program created a folder "old" with all of my data there. How do i set my system up so that all of my data is under the "new" user account, or at least tell my system to look in the "old" user folder?

Administrative Account

So i've had the rc for a few days now, and as i was uninstalling a program so that i could get a clean install with it, windows 7 is refusing to let me delete the folder and files that have been left over from the uninstall, i'm receiving the error message "you need permission to perform this action. You require permission from administrators to make changes to this folder. Try again cancel" now i'm set up as the administrator and i can pretty well change anything and everything else. I just thought i would bring this to your attention.

2nd Email Account

I've sent up my first comcast email account without any issues. I've then created another identity on the computer and tried to set up my second comcast email account but have run into this problem. It tells me i'm successful but when it tries to send or receive email i get a "logon to mail.comcast.net box asking for my user name and password. I type in what i think my user name for my second account is but it still won't "authorize" to get or send emails.

User Account Control

I recently had a new hard drive installed on on my dell xps computer. Prior to having the new hard drive installed i had no problem with the vista home premium running in 64 bit mode. Since having the new hard drive installed i have had a number of issues, first whenever i try to download files from the internet it will not let me also i cannot view videos via ie8 "you tube, msnbc, etc). I have found that whenever i turnoff user account control (uac) everything works just fine.

Is there a way i can have uac turned on and still have everything work? Or do i really need uac turned on. My guess is that who ever reinstalled the system on my computer did something that makes them the primary account, although it shows that i am the only account and the administrator. I have tried correcting this issue via advanced tools in ie8 with no luck.

User Account Has Reset Itself

I recently restarted my computer, after uninstalling my "dell support center" because it's been annoying. When i logged back into my user account, it was like i was logging onto a brand new account. No files were in my documents etc. And no shortcuts were on my screen. However, all my files are still on my hard drive. Is there something i can do to fix this and get my old account back? I've checked and its still the same account name, just everything gone.

Turn Off A User Account

My mother has several children that live with her (her grandchildren/my nephew/niece) and has put a password lock on her new pc. It runs windows 7. Apparently my nephew found a way to bypass the password lock on the owner account (the admin account) and created an account called ownerpc/back up. Via remote assistance (she lives in ny, i live in fl) i was able to delete this account, but for the life of me i cannot find an option to turn off for this and i have also come up short trying to even find how he did it via web searches. Can anyone tell me how to prevent this from happening again? Or even how he was able to do this?

Lost Admin Account

I had changed my login to automatic. After that i managed to install still programs. But when i started windows again, it didn't let me to change settings which demand admin rights. I'm now a guest and there isn't any other accounts. When i try to make changes in uac, for example, it demands to log in as admin and "then press yes", but there is no fields to log in and "yes"-button is gray. Is there any chance to get admin back without reconfiguration with windows cds. I also tried to recover the system but it demands, of course, admin rights.

Resetting Password On Account

One day, i wanted to change the password on my account, the admin account by the way, and you need the password you are already using, so i tried it and it didn't work, so i shut down my computer, and turned it back on, and i couldn't log into the admin account, and the other account has parental controls on it, so i couldn't do just about anything on that one without the admin password. So anyway, i tried to change it and it told me i needed a floppy disk or a usb flash drive, and i don't have the disc to reset it so what do i do from there? How do i get the disc?  All i want to do is log on that account.

Unable To Remove Account

I recently had my computer repaired at best buy and it returned working well but a new "administrator" account was added even though i already gave them the password and such for my own administrator account. This account is seriously bothering me. I cannot get rid of it for the life of me. I repeatedly attempt to remove the account but when i go into add/remove account and manage the account, the only option missing is "delete the account". Why is this and how can i make it an option?

Missing Administrator Account

During setup of a new computer with windows 7, i created two user account, selecting both as administrators. Today while trying to move a program i got a message stating that i can't perform the action because i don't have administrator privileges. I went to control panel, user accounts and family safety, add or remove user accounts.

Under the names on the icons, the word administrator is displayed, but when i click on a user account and then on change the account type, both users have the radio button next to standard user lit. I try to move it to administrator, but the change account type button becomes grayed (probably because i am not viewed as an administrator. So why did the user accounts change mysteriously to standard user and how can i get them administrator rights when i don't see any other user on startup.

To stop the prompt run regedit. Navigate to the registry key

Change the value of consentpromptbehavioradmin to 0 (zero) from 2.

User Account Control Issue

I am finding the user account control function to be a total pain in windows 7, because half my programs fall foul of it and half do not.

It seems that i have to either use two account profiles and switch in and out between them depending on which program i am going to use at that moment. Or switch off the user account control function completely.

Neither option seems to be a very satisfactory solution. Is there any way of telling it not to react to the same programs over and over again, but to react to programs that i have not flagged as 'safe' ?

Blurry User Account Picture

I'm using windows 7 home premium and i'm having an issue with the user account picture. At the top of the start menu, the picture appears to be slightly blurred, no matter what size the source image is. In the user accounts section of the control panel, however, the same picture is sharp and scaled properly. Is there any way to fix this?Here's a link to a comparison shot (left - start menu, right - control panel):http://img171. Imageshack. Us/img171/2056/w7issue.png
