yahoo and hotmail ask me for password

by Joseph Moore In reply to yahoo and hotmail ask me ...

Probably the Cookie files that contained this info were wiped out by your antivirus program.

Just re-log into the websites, and usually the cookies will be re-generated. Hopefully you remember the passwords for the sites. And look into having the antivirus software excluding the Cookies folder under your profile on the NT machine to prevent this from happening again.

hope this helps
