Customer Question
I can't get into...

I can't get into my hotmail account with my password, I had an email the other day from Microsoft saying my account might be compromised and asked me to change my password, now that password *****'t working on my laptop, it seems to be okay on my iPad though

Technician's Assistant: What kind of computer do you have?

Mac Book Pro

Technician's Assistant: Have you installed any updates recently?

I'm not sure, my husband uses the laptop more than I do, as I mostly use my iPad

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Computer Expert to know before I connect you?

No, I think that's it

Tech Support Specialist: Isaac Franklin, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 11 months ago

To get started, I need to know what type of computer you are using, a Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10 or a Mac.

If its a Mac, please check the OSX version as follows, Click the apple sign at the top left of your screen, then click about this mac. And then where it says version, send that to me as a reply.

What recovery email are you trying to get back? gmail/outlook/yahoo etc?

How do you usually access your email? Email client such as windows live, (built in email app

on the computer itself that looks like an envelope) Thunderbird? Using a regular browser such

as Firefox/Internet Explorer/Chrome etc?

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
