Hi and thanks for your question! What exactly is this password XXXXX your computer, your email, something else? Some passwords can be retrieved, some cannot, so just let me know exactly what this password XXXXX you access to and we can go from there!

That is one of the few that is almost impossible to recover! Lets see, SOME providers give you a second way to reset your password. For example, when you go to log on to your e-mail, and you put in your username, is there a link below the password XXXXX that says "forgot password?" If so, you can click on this and you may have to go through some security questions, but it will reset your password XXXXX you and tell you how to change it.

 

Who is your email provider? AOL? Comcast?

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
