Preferred Solution: Microsft account [email protected] has blocked the laptop.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


so i installed norton 2010 the other day (bad decision), and ever since it wont allow me to access my gmail account on any browser.

i cleared my cache on every browser, cookies... everything. you name it, i cleared it. i Uninstalled norton, restarted, and STILL cant access gmail.

it just keeps telling me theres a loophole or something, and it never loads. something to do with HTTPS? i used another computer to access my gmail, and it worked! i even set the settings in gmail to use HTTP, instead of HTTPS.

but for some reason even after i uninstalled norton, i still cant access it.

pleeeeeeeease help!

I have an outlook.com and a gmail account. They are both listed when I use Win 10 Mail on my desktop and older laptop. I just got a new laptop and I want to add to it, the same gmail account to my Win 10 Mail. It seems that I have to set up a new gmail email account and not simply transfer the old one over to the new laptop? I don't know how the other computers have both email accounts listed. Please help. Thanks.

I have a computer linked through a SSH/VPN network connection, however I noticed there is simply no way Windows able to login to any Microsoft account, be it trying to create a new one, or sign in for an app such as market. While I can view the market without issue, but unable to sign into download any app through the SSH/VPN network.

Is there any work around for such issue or Windows online account just not made to work through these types of connections?

I ask this question every now and then to see if anyone else may have had this problem and solved it.
I use one particular Yahoo mail account daily on my desktop.Until a year ago I could sign in from my desk top or laptop.
About a year ago Yahoo requested that my password be change. They wanted something longer and more secure. Since then I can sign in fine from the desktop but the laptop gets the "Invalid username or password" message when I try to sign in. This happens in both IE and FF. I can sign in to a different Yahoo mail account from the laptop with no problem. It is just my main account which will not allow me to sign in from the laptop.
I thought it might have something to do with Comodo Internet security 2012 but this was just uninstalled and reinstalled due to another problem.
I even E mailed my username and password to the laptop ( using a different yahoo account) and cut and pasted to the sign in page.Still no luck
Doing internet searches I have seen this exact problem but have yet to see a solution.
Also the the "Invalid username or password" message comes up so quickly it does not seem that enough time goes by to have queried Yahoo about signing in.
Not sure what would be internal to the computer to block a password or username.
Suggestions are appreciated
Best Regards

I have just changed third-party Internet Providers for another company. I lost my email addresses in the transaction. It was a very small company so I could not transfer my email addresses to new account. So I won't have to go through that hassel again I opened gmail accounts.

My question is can I set up my gmail accounts as our default email accounts we access through Outlook? If I can, how do I do that? I have never even set up email on my new laptop, I just went through IP's server which was a hassel. I usually use one account on one computer and my husband uses one on another computer. I hate having to go to the gmail page. No I don't want all the bells and whistles Google is offering. I just want to turn on my computer, click on a link and open my email in a program I know how to use? I can't find any help through Gmail. Everything I found cost me. That leads to a second question. Does Google have a technical support phone number? One that does not cost?

Anyway, my computer OS is Windows 7 and I am using Outlook from Office 2003 on one computer the other computer uses Windows XP and Outlook from Office 2003.

Hi, my browsers (I.E. 9, FF and Safari) are all blocking gmail. They were blocking google and youtube before, but now these sites are loading normally, but gmail still is blocked. I've ran Malawarebytes and Combofix (I know now I should not have done it, just followed bad advice online) without trouble but without further success, Malaware at the beginning cleaned some files and Combofix removed a couple of files, I have the logs to post if you would like.

I support a network of 12 computers, all of which run through one hardware firewall. One computer on my network is getting a 404 error when trying to access www.gmail.com, or if they click the mail icon on yahoo.com. All other internet access seems ok on that station, and gmail and yahoo mail work on every other station.

I checked for blocked sites, allowed sites, and tried turning off the software firewall on that particular machine. The last reported problem by AVG Pro was startpage.cza INSTALL_FP6_WU_R88.EXE. All of my research on that showed that it was a false positive.

Any ideas?

Hi there,
I have been dealing with a very strange problem this week in that the email app on my Ipad which use a gmail address will not work at all for several hours in the evening. Also, at the same time my PS3 console is unable to access the playstation network (also uses the same gmail address). I am able to still access my gmail inbox via broswers on both my PC and Ipad - but the app itself will not work at all. Other google related sites like youtube also become inaccessible via login (even with a different gmail address). The google search engine also performs strangley on both my Ipad and PC.

The strangest part I feel is that everything is fine in the mornings (no symptoms), but once I return home from work the problem exists and remains until about 11pm and everything returns to normal. This has happened three nights in a row.

After running a quick scan with Malwarebytes, it found "pup.offerware" which sounds rather nasty from what I've read.

I find the problem tricky to explain due to its weirdness, so my apologies if this explanation didn't come across very well. Any help would be amazing!

Many thanks and here are my logs:

Hi there,
I find this problem very tricky to explain due to its weirdness, so my apologies if this explanation doesn't come across very well.

I have been dealing with a very strange problem in that for several hours of each day (usually in the evenings) my Ipad suddenly refuses to send and recieve mail via the Ipad mail app. Also, during these same periods my PS3 console is blocked from the playstation network. My PC running XP mostly remains fine except youtube is often inaccessible via my gmail login and some sites appear to slow down, while most sites (non-google related) appear to behave as normal.
Strangely, I am still able to access my gmail inbox via web broswers on both my PC and Ipad - but the Ipad app itself refuses to work at all.
The problem only exists for periods of a few hours each day and then everything returns to normal with no problems of notice.
After running a quick scan with Malwarebytes, it found "pup.offerware" which I removed.

I run Vista 32 bit and have four seperate user accounts. One is the administrators account which I don't use and the other three are for me and my family.

Earlier today I was unable to access my account although the administrators account and the other two are still OK.

I tried following the instructions on a web site to delete my account and open another. It appeared to be successful and I can now access my new account but it is empty of documents etc and I cannot find any of my files.

I've looked in the C: drive and while there are two folders with my name on them they are both empty.

Is it possible that I have lost all my files? Surely they couldn't be deleted without the computer showing some indication of what it was doing as it would take a long while to delete them if I formatted the disk.

I have a good back up incase of disaster but I cannot believe the files have all gone.

Can you advise me if this is possible or where I should look for them.

This actually comes from a topic on another forum site that does not see many users these days. I have tried to help this person, but to my knowledge he has not found a solution and Microsoft refuses to help in any way.

"My daughter's user ID was the admin account for her new laptop running Windows 7. She went outside, leaving it running. My 13-year old grandson, as a joke, made her a standard user and his user account the admin account. The problem is this: my daughter had used Windows 7's parental controls to block his then standard user account 24/7 to keep him off of her computer. Now that his is the admin account, Windows will NOT let that account logon. It says, ?logon failure: account logon time restriction violation? any time we try to login using the admin account. Even "Run As Administrator" generates this message."

I told him how to contact Microsoft, and he replied saying that MS keeps telling him they don't help with forgotten passwords. His daughter explained as clearly as possible the situation, and after a pause the person said the same thing over again. The most recent thing I advised was that he try doing a system restore in safe mode, but I have not heard back. Will a system restore reverse the account type change? Any other ideas on how to fix this?

I'm honestly just curious at this point and would like to know how to solve such a problem in the future.

Windows XP with 64-Bit regrettably using Chrome..

I have numerous health issues and trying to survive on SSI DI, I really appreciate all the help I've received from Tech Support volunteers with my diminishing logic.
I was hospitalized Mon 12/10 for testing, labs and x-rays. Tuesday the 11th I had a pacemaker replacement and Wed the 12th I was home. During that time, Hotmail (Live) sensed suspicious activity on my account and I got blocked from my account. I wasn't even here, my Dog (with no computer interest) was boarded and the cat's only computer interest is "bating at my screensaver".
I am not any kind of game player, I'm a 63 year-old man that has been accused of being the Internet Police. I hate & report every scammer I run across and Hotmail (Live) knows it so I am baffled!
I had outlook take over my account which I didn't appreciate so I dropped it to go back with Live. The only other changes have been my ISP on 01/01/2012. I was on cable and the cable company sold out to another cable company so I had to change my email address. I guess Hotmail/Live is one I failed to notify of the change and can be the only reason I can figure to be the cause.
I have relentlessly tried to get help from Live support and as close as I can get is to have them text me a security code. Great, but with my income (or lack of) I opted out of texting to save me a bit on my bill.

Hi guys i was talking to a curry's technician about my problem and he told me if i cant get help through normal channels to come here and seek help.

Basically my problem is with my hotmail account. About a week and abit ago my account got either hacked or attacked by a bot because it sent out those annoying emails where it tells your contacts to click on a link and if they do spreads this annoying thing to them. Now i didnt click on any link but i was on a family laptop so i have a feeling it wasnt properly virused checked and got on my account through that laptop. I was told about an hour after it had happened by a friend so i logged on changed my password and deleted all the emails i could.

About a day after I get told that i cant get into my email due to it being blocked (even though i was still logged in but i logged out to test this and then couldnt get back in)
It told me my account had been compromised and that it was blocked which was fine because i had and i totally understood why.

However it told me to contact support to unblock it so i did and heard nothing back within a 48 hour period (even though it said it would be sorted within 24)
I then tried again and after 3 tries and a week and a half later i just dont know what to do.

When i read the forum support it just says change your password which i did and doesnt really help with unblocking my account. I wouldn't mind but this account is part of my xbox live account so i cant change it and is part of man... Read more

I tried to change my SID number (Security Identifier - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) with a program called newsid.exe (NewSID v4.10) and it closed out before it was done. Before this happened, I had only one account named 'Rhodes' with administrative privileges and no password. Then I restarted my computer and it had an account named 'Rhodes' and an account name 'Other User'. I clicked on Rhodes (it still had no password) and it went to my desktop but the desktop looked like it was when I first got it, at factory default settings. Everything I had downloaded was gone, including my music, programs, and pictures. All my settings had been reset to default. And administrative rights were gone. The first thing I did was look at my Users in Control Panel and all I saw was 'Rhodes' and disabled 'Guest'. I didn't see 'Other User' here so I went and looked on my C Drive and found the 'Users' folder and checked in there. It has a 'Rhodes' and a 'Rhodes.RhodesPC'. If I click on 'Rhodes' it tells me I don't have permission to access this folder. If I click on Rhodes.RhodesPC it brings me to the folders of the account I am currently on (the 'Rhodes' without administrative privileges). I have tried creating a new administrator account a few different ways (including an elevated command prompt in safe mode) but I can't get anything to work.

HHi please can someone help, I bought a lenovo 100 notebook and set an account up with Microsoft and forgot my 2 year old daughter had been pressing buttons to block the account. I changed my password and recovery my account or at least so it said but still won't log me in. I emailed Microsoft endless amount of times and filled in a ownership form but because the account was so young I didn't have any contacts on the account or didn't even have time to send one email so it failed and now Microsoft say there's nothing they can do so I hope I can restore factory settings so I can enter my laptop and change the account. Is there a way of deleting the account that's blocked ?

Hi all,

I'm having problems login to my Hotmail account.

- When I sign in, it displays:

"Your account has been been blocked".

- It then asks me to reset my password and displays:

"There was a problem and unfortunately, we have to ask you to sign in again. We're sorry for the inconvenience."

- It goes on in a loop repeating the same.

Microsoft help hasn't been of great help. I'll be grateful if anybody has the solution for this.
