View Full Version : Windows Live Messenger Issue

Hi everyone,

I had some friends over. One of them went on my PC. Used my Windows Live. Normally I have my msn on "remember all" so I don't have to type my password in new everytime. Anyway this friend clicked that away and logged into his own account.

Next day I want to log into mine. And it asks me for the password. Which I forgot. Issue is the email used on my msn account is an old one which is no longer active, so I can't easily retrieve the password so I'm in a clincher. I'm not asking for the password though.

Is there anywhere in the windows live folder or possible way where I can salvage my contacts list? Such as a file which contains them which is saved somewhere on the PC. So I can simply cut/paste that file into a new windows live account, so I don't have to manually re-add over 200 contacts. Some of them which will be hell to find.

Well this really is a borderline area Dragon and I've thought long and hard on this but unfortunately I'm going to have to defer to Rule 5 on this one mate.

Search the net on this and I'm sure you'll find an answer.

Sorry Dragon
