I lost my password once when I did some kind of scan. I don't remember exactly what it was right now, but it cleaned up ALL temporary internet files. And when I wanted to get back on TSG, I couldn't get in because the password was gone from the computer.

This site should have a quick link at the top of the page for those of us that loose our password. (y) ;)

By the way, I went to the "Live Help". The person there helped me get back on. He also told me that, that was not the place to aske for help like that.

Actually, if you lost ur password, there would be a page saying to click here if you have forgotten your password after a failure to log in.

Here's the link: http://forums.techguy.org/login.php?do=lostpw

I know it coz I have used it a couple of times, :p.

here's what I found looking in FAQs
I lost my password, what can I do?
If you forget your password, you can click on the 'Forgotten Your Password' link on any page that requires you to fill in your password.
This will bring up a page where you should enter your registered email address, and an email will be sent to that address instantly, with instructions for resetting your password.
Yea, I think ur right about creating a link at the Log in box itself. Im not sure if there's is one already, but cant seem to locate it once I access the page thru another browser if there is one.

And Regarding Live Help, that's another service that TechGuy (who owns this site) provides, where in the people who do not wish to wait for a reply here or waiting on hold from other Tech Support(s) dept provided by their Vendor and such, go or asks for assistance.

Before there is a chat link for this site, but cant seem to find a link to access it, maybe im still sleepy and need to eat to wake myself up.


Hope that clears a bit, im sure an admin would provide more accurate info once they check this thread :D.

Yes, as stated, a failed login attempt will bring up a screen asking if you have forgotten your password and giving you the option of requesting a new one.

Also, if you're not sure what to do, you can click on the "contact us" link at the bottom of the page and send an e-mail explaining the problem. :)
