Re: Messenger Site and NVDA

I already changed my Facebook password yesterday afternoon, but I don't think that did it for Messenger because some friends told me they received messages this morning.

You should be able to change your Facebook password, and that will change it for Messenger.

Yes I do, and I realize now they both go together. I may have to delete the Facebook account if I can't change my Messenger password.

Abbie, messenger is now a part of facebook. So do you have a facebook account?

Hmmm you should be able to change the password.

To be honest, when ms/ google says you have been hacked, just like
windows flagging things,  I don't know if it has or not.

I had the same issue with google sync, an update and reload had to be done.

The program crashed in the middle of signup.

Google then said I was hacked and needed to change my password.

It will also do that if you go to another location then signin from
your home location, sometimes it puts up a security message sometimes not.

Either you don't get it or respond fast enough and boom.

A friend had this with an ms account.

Her system lost power in the middle of a feature windows update.

Nothing worked, eventually she had to reformat her pc, and windows
mobile phone, change her passwords then create another account for
it to work.

Some of that was her isp doing strange things but everything got out
of sync, and then things got confused.

I had the same situation with a business system I was working on,
the encripted drive crashed.

Some backups were made but not everything.

The system was reinstalled on a new box, but again, security was
just crazy.

Eventually with some professional recovery technitions the drives
were recovered, the accounts were updated, but it envolved a lot of
mucking about.

I am more inclined to think if something says your account is hacked
that your account is not in fact compromised its just windows or
your previder telling you you are doing something outside their
strict guidelines.

https://www.messenger.comFor some reason, it's not reading the
settings dialog box. I've tried some of the mouse commands but to no avail. Does anyone have any ideas?
