Default My biggest screw up. So bad that I don't have a clue how bad.

I wiped out all of my passwords last night. If that ain't bad enough my e-mail accounts from Yahoo and Hotmail use a telephone # that I lost in a lawsuit in 2005. Is this the perfect example of FUBB, or what? I can get on a few sites but I still can't figure out what to do about e-mail. Of course, you can't "TALK" to anybody.

Get passwordsafe (freeware) and keep a copy of the password database on a USB drive. I have so many that there's no way to remember them all.

I feel your pain!! Every single thing nowadays requires a user name and password. Work is the same way...except theres a guy working a help desk somewhere in the world just to unlock our accounts WHEN we forget passwords.

Did you go back as Kanaka suggested and do a system restore. All that previous stuff is still on your computer. Go back and read his attached instructions.
