After posting “help me reset my msn-live email password”, I received some helpful messages from my friends. They mainly gave me suggestions how to solve my problem. Thank you very much for your attention, although I still cannot recover my password.
It is over now. Finished. I conclude that my account (email@example.com) has been hacked. Someone has stolen it. My password and data have been changed. It’s absolutely a kind of illegal action. The most annoying thing is that the hacker has also misused my email. Yesterday, I got this message (from my prior account: firstname.lastname@example.org):

Your help will be greatly appreciated.
Terus terang, saya terkejut. Kemudian saya cek di blog Anda, dan membaca posting tentang me-reset akun email di msn. Hal seperti ini sering terjadi. Biasanya hacker atau intruder menyusup ke jaringan dan pc Anda ketika Anda sedang online, sehingga bisa mengakses data termasuk password. Langkah prefentif, sebaiknya sering mengganti password dengan kata-kata sulit, serta secret questions yang unik….
So, to all my friends and the visitors of this blog, I hereby state that my prior account (firstname.lastname@example.org) is not mine anymore. If you receive email from email@example.com, it is not from har (haarrr.wordpress.com). As a new blogger, I realize that I have a limited knowledge on the usage of internet-based technology. The misuse of my prior msn account has made me shy and embarrassed. Anyway, it’s a warning for me to protect my account safely. And, to myself, it is a kind of challenge to improve my ability in internet-based technology.
And, this is my new email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
