  1. i totally forgot my windows live ID password.
    and the security question too.
    and theres a software that can recover the password if i check the "remember me/remember my password" in this computer.
    but i reinstalled windows in drive D and i deleted files in drive C yesterday (last time i used C drive but theres a prob with my windows so i have to use D before i reformat it).. so the the software couldn't find my password in the computer.
    and i downloaded this software which can recover files that have been deleted.
    which file or destination folder that contain the password.?
    which file do i need to recover.?
    cause there are thousands of them.
    or is there any other way to recover my password.?
    because i dont have any alternate email in my hotmail account and theres the only way for to contact my old friends and to send my assignment files to my partners.
    please help.
    thank you.

    Here's the official link:

    But you want to recover your password, and:

    You formatted C Drive
    You installed Windows to D Drive
    You forgot your secret question
    You don't have an alternative email

    Really it's sounding very sus to me :suspiciou
    Like you are trying to recover someone else s password
    It really doesn't sound all that kosher :rolleyes:

    What?

    Yes just contact MSN (seeming that would be the best thing to do)
    And get a free spell checker as well, Firefox and Chrome come with one automatically installed

    Good luck :grinthumb
