Hi and thanks in advance for help offered

When on MS Internet Explorer it usually works OK but sometimes a MSN window opens asking me to confirm my username and password and I have tried every combination of the password I THINK I used, but it rejects it - how can I set about giving a new one as I can't think how to contact them?

Thanks again

Internet Explorer doesn't require a username and password - so I assume you are referring to a particular website you use. It might help to know which website you are trying to access

Thanks, sea urchin - I knew I probably didn't give you enough. I was in Google maps.

usually when you try to sign into a site you put your e mail address in and theres a forgot your password link , look for that and follow instructions.

The password you require will be your Gmail account.

You may be able to find it by using SIW.exe.

This is a Microsoft Diagnostic prorgam (System Information Windows).

Run the program and look under software - Secrets for your passwords.

The current version of SIW now uses Passwords instead of Secrets
