Hi there,

In my Pc I reconfiured some accounts (local) and add some 
restrictions in registry to prevent/monitor internet 
surfing for other new accounts. Afetr this now MSN stopped 
accepting my login.  I cannot check my mails in hotmail.
Same password works from other PC.

Please let me know how to reconfigure MSN so that it will 
take fresh settings?

Thakns and regard.

Greetings Dalvi,

There's not much "built-in" to Windows to do this besides some Internet Explorer policy 
settings, exactly what restrictions did you use?

2.Backup from Win XP to Win 7 ?


Is there a way to backup all accounts, mails and contacts from WLM on a XP 
machine to WLM on Win 7 machine, without downloading all mails again?
The accounts inlude POP, IMAP and Hotmail accounts.

In Outlook Express there was a Pop3uidl.dbx file for POP accounts, which 
prevented OE to download old mails again. I could simply copy the mail 
folder with the Pop3uidl.dbx.

Thanks in advance!

4.Outlook, MSN Mail, Win XP Pro

I have been running WinXP, and using Outlook 2003 (not Express) to access my 
MSN mail. Recently my son ungraded my desk top computer to XP Pro and ever 
since I have not been able to log into my e-mail.  I keep getting a box that 
asks for my password even though I have the account set up with the password, 
and when I type the password he box just reappears. I have been running XP 
Pro on my laptop since I purchased it and I do not have the problem on it. 
I'm thinking something happened when XP Pro installed but I can't figure out 
what. I even deleted the account and reinstalled. The only thing I haven't 
done is reinstall Outlook. Any thoughts and/or suggestions.
