    Somethin is goin on. I have 2 accounts on hotmail, 2 on yahoo and one on myway. ALL my accounts have been disactivated!! I noticed when i ran adaware that it had a lot of adware and also, that i used the same password for all 5 accounts. It cant be a coincidence that all my email accounts have me disactivated. i havent done anythin wrong that i know of. wat can i do?

    Unlikely.
    1st try tools/internet options/delete cookies .. then /delete files. Then try and log on to the acct's again. You can also try to access the acct's from another computer from another IP addy.
    Do you have a virus scanner? Firewall? Router (hardware firewall)? Dial up / broadband?

    Also in the future it would be a good idea to have different passwords.

    i deleted the cookies and files....that didnt work for me. i have NOD32 and ran it, found a couple of stuff but still no luck. I do have a router and i recently foward some ports, but i dont think thats the problem cuz my other accounts work and that has never been a problem. And im using broadband. As far as tryin it from another computer, im a try it and get back to you on that one.

    Some places such as hotmail, yahoo, ect. automatically disactivate your account if you do not log in for a period of time...
