    My hotmail account, of three years, was recently hacked. The password was changed, all information, and the secret password, to stop me from using it anymore. I can admit i had it coming, it was a very simple password anyone could figure out.

    But I don't want to lose this account, I use it for both chatting (MSN Messenger) and email, and it would be hell to give everyone a new address. I know there are programs out there capable of cracking passwords, and I was wondering if anyone knows of one that I can use to get my account back.

    Thanks for the help. :)

    Contact Hotmail. You can't "crack" a Hotmail password and if it were possible, it wouldn't be discussed here anyway.
