Closed Solved

How do I open my blocked Hotmail account?

:fou: My hotmail account is my home page. Now Internet Explorer says it can't open it. I have not ever had a Microsoft Account but now since they are changing hotmail I think I need one. When I go there, they asked for my password for hotmail. I never used a password except to open up my computer and then it when directly to my hotmail account. When I tried that password, it wasn't accepted. I gave them a yahoo account that I had a long time ago , but there has been closed because I never used it. I do not have texting on my phone so how do I contact Microsoft or what else is there to get in my account? Another problem is that all of my email contact addresses are now shut up in my hotmail account so when Microsoft asked for frequently used emails, I only had one that happened to be in my notes.
If that isn't enough of a problem at this time of year, today is my birthday and my friends often send me ecards. HELP!!

    Go into Internet Options and type another site URL into the Home Page, to at least get you connected to WEB. EG, http://att.net

    Find a friend that knows about computers to teach you how to use one. From what you posted, you need a bit of instruction.

    You must have entered your username and password at some point to get to your mail, then just saved it and forgot it. Support for hotmail (now Live) is here https://account.live.com/ResetPassword.aspx?wreply=https://login.live.com/login.srf%3fwa%3dwsignin1.0%26rpsnv%3d11%26ct%3d1354889255%26rver%3d6.1.6206.0%26wp%3dMBI%26wreply%3dhttp:%252F%252Fmail.live.com%252Fdefault.aspx%26id%3d64855%26cbcxt%3dmai%26snsc%3d1%26vv%3d1350%26mkt%3dEN-US%26lc%3d1033&id=64855&mkt=EN-US&lc=1033&bk=1354889257&username=
