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?

All the error messages in W10 really not helping at all, just "something happened", duh~

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 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!

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 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 logged on to my Gmail account this morning, and found that the vacation setting was on. I thought this was strange, as I hadn't set it, so I opened the settings and found that it was set to send some dodgy mail to anyone who wrote to me, inviting them to meet online and sending a link to some pics (obviously, I didn't click this link).

Then I checked my sent messages to see how many people it had been sent to, and found that not only had it been sent to people who wrote to me during the night, but also that a different mail had been sent to a whole list of people whose addresses were all very similar:
pers-(then some letters and numbers)@craigslist.org

The mail said only "heyy, i think we can fill each others ad " - with no link. One person actually replied to this wanting to meet up!!!

The subjects headings were replies, like "Re: Fun witty guy Looking - 26 (Central Point)" or "Re: anyone real? - 19", suggesting that they might be replies to dating posts.

I do not look at Craigslist.org, and have not looked at any dating posts anywhere.

How has this happened from my email address, and how safe am I now? It seems to be back to normal now.....

Thanks for any advice you can give.


A:Has my Gmail account been hacked??

To read: http://tech.yahoo.com/blogs/null/586...B4eB3JLpcFLZA5

E-mail spoofing

A feature of the protocol that email is based upon is that the email message itself has a number of spaces (data fields) for information like the "intended recipient", "sender's email address" and the "return email address", "CC", "BCC", etc etc. within the email datagram (think of email like a picture postcard with spaces for the sender name and address as well as name and address of the person it is being sent to).

What someone has done (or rather set up a piece of software to do) is send a spam email to so many million email addresses with the sender's FROM email address set to be the same as the "intended recipient's" TO email address. This is done for two main reasons, partly to try to get past email spam filters that filter on known spammer's FROM addresses (or email domains) and partly to hook your interest in getting an email from yourself - which it achieved.

So the spammer is not sending spam email from your email account (that is - they are not hacking into your account and typing messages), but simply using your email address to send spam email to you. Just as if you had got a picture postcard through the post addressed to you with the offer of cheap Viagra but was signed with your name.
You can also try a program like MailWasher.

About six weeks ago, both my Gmail and WoW accounts were hacked. I recovered my accounts and changed my passwords on a clean computer, and ran Avast, Malwarebytes, and Microsoft Security Essentials. They found a few viruses and they were deleted, and I received no more trouble.

However, just a few days ago my Gmail and WoW account were hacked again. I once again recovered my accounts, changed my passwords on a clean computer, and ran the same three anti-viruses. This time, however, they didn't find any viruses.

I very strongly doubt that someone got a hold of my passwords because a) no one knows my passwords, and I change them regularly, and b) the accounts were accessed from China both times (and I live in Canada). Both times, the hacker changed my passwords, and despite having access to a lot of other information, only used my WoW account to sell in-game items.

I would greatly appreciate any assistance in helping me find what I assume is some sort of keylogger. Thanks!

Hi I've have to old gmail accounts that I used to have assess to but I forgot the password to. And one of them I used to login to my Twitter account. I need help because when I try to rest my password/ recover my account I wasn't able to do it because the way Gmail is setup it ask you for all the time and dates or when I last used it. I don't remember. All I know is my user name and that without my [email protected] account I can't login to my Twitter account Brazilah. And my other Gmail account [email protected] has the same problem. Although the only difference is that [email protected] is linked to my old cellphone number that I don't use anymore because I'm not with the same cellphone compony.

Hi Is there any way of removing/deleting a Google account/ gmail from a win 7 pc ie9 I don't have the password and when I go through the password recovery it says no record of it. I looked at doing a restore but don't have a restore point early enough, if I reinstall windows will that remove it or will it come back with the reinstall, hope you can understand this.

Hello there,
We need a bit more detail, as your question is quite confusing.
Are you referring to deleting a Gmail account permanently, so you cannot login to it anymore? Also, just to clarify, Windows is completely different to Gmail. Re-installing it won't affect or delete your Gmail account.

Hi everyone.

I've had a gmail account for about two years now and thought it was the dog's _____ until last week. I tried to log onto my account from the gmail.com page and it's telling me that my username and password do not match. This puzzled me as I use the Opera browsers autofill function to fill in my password for me and the username is already filled in when I get there so I tried it manually.......same story.
Next I went down the "forgotten password" route and was informed that my account name does not exist.....starting to worry now.
Just to test this out I tried creating a new account with the same username. This time it said that the username is already taken and should try another one. EH???
How can one part of the system know it exists and the other not?
I'm tearing my hair out here. I don't keep any sensitive info on the account but I have two years worth of emails stored on it and some of them are very personal messages from friends and it would be aweful to loose them all now.
I've had no reply from the Google support team to any of my help requests.......guess I'm just too small for the likes of them.

I was unfortunate enough to have my personal Google gmail account hacked this morning by one of these spammers that resets your password and then sends an email to everyone in the address book that you've been robbed in London and need the recipient to wire money so you can make it home. I haven't been able to access the account and I guess it is gone for good because Google keeps rejecting my account recovery pages. So far, apart from the damage to my pride, nothing seems amiss. I have some annoyed and some amused customers contacting me but my main concern is is the damage limited solely to Google? I don't have a keylogger or anything like that do I? How would I know? Is there any way I can get back into that account without Google's help? I've been changing passwords and usernames all day but I'm paranoid that I've forgotten something. As an extra precaution I reset my computer to a clean restore point before all of this happened. Any help/encouragement is definitely appreciated.

Select "compose" in Gmail program and then click on "to" where you address the new email and click on "select all" right on the top of the box and then send a message to all!

A few weeks back I got an email from Blizzard saying that my Battle.net account had most likely been hacked and that resulted in my accounts removal.
Since then I've been trying to fix it and after being in contact with their Support they strongly suspected that my Gmail Account had been compromised.
Everytime I tried to change the password on my Batte.net account and it was quickly changed as if someone knew what I was mailing to Blizzard Support.
So they said that they suspect that I have some sort of Keylogger or something so my password has been leaked.

So since then I've been running several cleanup programs against viruses, trojans and all that kind of stuff, suggested by Blizzard Support.
And now I'm here to post my HiJackThis log to see if you guys can spot anything now that it's supposed to be clean.
If I've missed anything please direct me to what and I'll try to sort it out.

Hi,Just recently the emails that were going into my WLM account are being redirected
into my gmail account.
I sent a test btinternet.com email from WLM which goes into my sent folder but not my inbox.
Is there a way to set it up so that gmail goes to gmail account and my btinternet.com emails
go into my WLM account.
Thanks for any help.
OS is Wndows 7 64bit

A:WLM emails going into my gmail account.

Hello Tommy,

What do you mean by "WLM account" ?
Is this an @hotmail.com, or @outlook.com, or ISP (btinternet), or ... account?
WLM (Windows Live Mail) is a Client (installed on PC) email program and can have many email accounts.
Do you have multiple accounts setup in WLM?
Every email provider I know of also has a WEB site where the user can read/send/manage email.
Are you using WLM for some email, and WEB email for other email?
Each email provider may offer different protocols such as IMAP, POP, MAPI and that can make a difference in what folders are used for a client program such as WLM.

Then there's a "Windows Live account" if that's what you're talking about, and Skype can affect things from what I've read...

Below is a screen print from WLM 2012 showing my "WLM accounts".
I have 2 hotmail accounts here - 1 is MAPI, and 1 is POP...plus a gmail and outlook account...
I mainly use Office Outlook for all my email, but I do use WLM on "test" systems for email that I know I don't need to keep ...

As you said it's a "recent change", can you restore to a point before the problem started?
Do you know what changed to start the problem - Patch Tuesday updates perhaps?
