reset the password via email and not the secret question option?

All Yahoo accounts share the same user ID and password, so changing the password from your Yahoo Mail account will change it for Messenger too.

You need to remember your original password for the 'Change Password' link to work! Clicking the 'I forgot my password' link only works if you already have registered an alternate e-mail where the password can be sent.

or try:

You will probably need to beat your antivirus into accepting this; but MessenPass by Nirsoft has a pretty good chance of showing you your password: http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/mspass.html
If that doesn't work, try the IE Passview which is also listed on the page.

@ModCorlEEone appologies for the violation...
@DavisMcCarn that is the same thing as:
Section 4.E Specifies the following:
xvi. Violating system and network security.

@Sabk3

My friend due to restrictions via this site, your only other option in regards to you current problem is to make up a new user, making sure that you same all the passwords somewhere...
As for you old contacts write them down on a piece of paper somewhere and reconnect with them on your new user....

I did mention this in my other post which has been deleted so im re posting it here...

If you have local admin access to YOUR box, this is not a violation of circumventing any securities.

If the password is stored in Protected Storage in your OS, this, if not the other Nirsoft util above will help retrieve it.

It is perfectly legal, and will not help crak/hack 3rd party machines.... Need local admin rights to the box.....

Messenpass didnt work? Are you sure it is stored then locally on teh PC? That, or PSPV should have retrieved it....
