My password has suddenly stopped working
When I try to reset it, there is normally a "secret question" - in place of this it now says "TOO LATE ALREADY GOT THAT"
Any ideas how to fix this?

Sorry - I should have explained thqat I am not a complete idiot.
I am protected by both Norton and ZoneAlarm.
I have contacted Microsoft and they have no idea what caused it.
I have got my address back but all mail has vanished

If that does not work either by scanning your computer for viruses, also try sending getting in touch with Hotmail technical support and explain your situation.

Someone stole your password and changed it. There is a Autobot crack out there so someone can have it sent them your password.
