It may be your computer Joyce, we need to first though eliminate all other causes for this.
I want you to attempt to reset your password ***** by using my link below.
Click me to view
Once you have reset the password, use this new password ***** sign in.
I can see you are a first time user to the site. What we do here is either a question and answer type of conversation or remote support where I would actually connect to the computer and have a look and fix the issue if possible.
Remote support can save a lot of time if you are not comfortable performing repairs yourself.
I will send an offer through for remote support and should you accept I will connect and see what is going on and fix the issue. Otherwise we can continue to talk like this but I will need to ask a number of other questions and try and walk you through some steps for repair.
Both options are 100% guaranteed by the way. Remote is just quicker and avoids the risk of you making a mistake and doing something wrong.
If you want remote click get extra help. If not simply reply to me.
Let me know the results please

I am sorry but I did as you asked but nothing has happened.

Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
I saw you gave me a bad rating complaint Joyce? Why is this? Especially as we are not yet finished.
If you did what I asked, the password ***** have been reset and you could then access your accounts, so it appears you did not.
What exactly did you just do? and where did you get stuck?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I did as you asked then went to aplly and put in my original password ***** I

used at the beginning andit worked ok but nothing happened and I couldnt get back to your page except for doing the grading thing which was unfair but I didnt know how to get back otherwise. I cannot afford to pay anymore money and I amworried about getting in any more involved because of that.

I notice my space bar sticks but not always do I notice when as it is notall the time and when I am typing it does feel as thoughit is okay as you can see it isdoing it now, could that haave anything to do with it when I am putting passwords in.

Thank you
The spacebar could very well be causing the problem Joyce as it may add a character.
But it was not clear, have you now got the password *****?
