For Online Computer Support, Ask a Computer Technician
Hello, and welcome. My name is Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today.
First a brief overview of the process: This is a live chat format, so I’ll need to communicate back and forth with you. You’ve already paid a deposit or membership to post your question here. I am an independent tech, and am volunteering my time unpaid until our chat is concluded. At that time I’ll request you click the EXCELLENT smiley face to close out our chat. It is my intention to solve your problem with a quick, honest, and helpful answer and my goal is for a rating of Excellent Service. You may receive an email survey after our chat, if you don’t feel I’ve earned a “10” rating in all areas, please let me know what I can do to meet your expectations.
Should you feel the need to provide a negative rating of Bad or Poor Service, please wait and let me know what I can do to clarify or more thoroughly answer your question instead. You are rating me personally, not this site or your product and negative rating will not initiate a refund. Please know that not all issues can be fixed online; in those cases of a hardware failure, I’ll troubleshoot and diagnose the problem, and provide a practical recommendation for how to proceed.
My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority. Let’s get started!
Hi there, sorry to hear you're having trouble.
Which password have you forgotten? Email account? Windows logon?
Ok, who is your email provider?
Gmail? Godaddy? Hotmail?
What we will need to do is have you reset your password, hopefully you will be able to do this via some pre-set security questions, or an alternate contact method if they have one (text message, 2nd email account, etc)
Windows live mail
I assume you know your username, correct? This is the part before the "@" in your email address.
Sorry about cutting in.
Windows live mail is just the email client, this is the software used to access your email account. But earthlink would be the one that is the "host" and controls your password/account.
I'll provide you the steps:
Yes, I know my user name
First, please click here: Forgot your password?
That will open up a new window,
enter your email address and click Continue
After that, it should ask you a series of security/identification questions, and then it will reset your password, and should allow you to either select a new password OR email you at an alternate address (if you have one on file) with a reset link or temporary password
let me know if this works for you
