Microsoft’s Hotmail email service is one of the most popular services on the Internet. Hotmail was recently integrated into Windows Live, and received a makeover in the process. One of the changes in the process is that users can now sign into Hotmail on the Internet, or by using Windows Live Mail, the mail program that supports logging into Hotmail to read and write emails.
This article acts as a guide for Hotmail users who have sign in or log in troubles on the website or in Windows Live Mail. Those are usually connected, meaning if it is not possible to sign in to the homepage it is also not possible to use Windows Live Mail to access the account.

We have already established in previous guides that password managers are excellent for that extra bit of security on the Internet. To reiterate: Password managers protect the system from various attacks, including phishing and keyloggers.
But these programs do more than that. They speed up web surfing, and ensure that the Internet users can set unique secure passwords for every web service that they use. That’s possible because the password manager remembers the logins, not the user.
In this best password manager guide, we are reviewing some of the best password managers that users can install and use.
We have been receiving an increased amount of emails and comments of Facebook users who have difficulties logging into the popular social networking website. Our initial guide, called Facebook Login, has helped many Facebook users, but some still had difficulties despite the guidance.
We have created a PowerPoint presentation and a PDF document to better aid Facebook users log into the website. Both documents have the same contents and contain all the necessary information to fix Facebook login problems.
You can download the help documents below. We have also added them to the sidebar here at Login Helper and linked them in the original Facebook login post for greatest exposure.
Not the username, but the password is the most important part of an online account, and it is relatively easy to explain why. A username usually is displayed somewhere on the site the account is for. A Facebook wall post, a reply in an online forum or the writing of an article all show the username in one form or the other. And even if the username is not displayed openly it can be guessed more easily or often substituted with a user’s email address.
An account password on the other hand is not visible anywhere. Attackers with the right account password can usually get into an account easily, not so on the other hand if they only have the email or username of the user on the site.
Now that we have established that passwords are the most important part of a user’s online presence we need to find out how to make them as secure as possible.
You probably have come upon password security questions before. They are often used when a user forgets the password to an account to identify the user. The major problem with those security questions is the fact that they often only display general questions that the user can chose from during configuration. This includes the mother’s maiden name, the first school, the favorite sports team or the birthplace.
Asking those questions is problematic because of two things. First, they are not that secure if the attacker has access to information about you. Your mother for instance would surely know most of the answers to those questions, as would a close friend and even most work colleagues or class mates might. The second problem with these type of questions is that they can also be easily guessed. The number of possibilities is a lot smaller than the number of possible passwords for an account meaning an attacker could simply try the most popular answers to see if they would be a hit.
PayPal offers a very popular financial service on the Internet. This can be attributed in part to its integration in eBay but also the fact that users can transfer money worldwide easily.
