In order to help you I need the answers to the questions I just asked. From what you have told me so far you use webmail so system restore will not change anything. What email service do you use? When you log in what is the exact message it gives you?

I have opened Password ***** several times and emails have been sent on `how to change my password` to my inbox which I cannot open.

Expert:  Freddy M. replied 2 years ago.

Please do it exactly the way I gave you and not to email, the way I gave you would be for security questions.
.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I have opened the security page. The question I am asked is my mothers town of birth. I have answered several times but has not been accepted.

Expert:  Freddy M. replied 2 years ago.
.
It will only accept it if you type it in exactly the way you did originally. For example if you used all lower case you would need to do that again.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

There is only one way to spell the name. With or without a capital letter makes no difference.

Expert:  Freddy M. replied 2 years ago.
.
The spelling is not what would do it, as I said it needs to be exactly the way it was originally typed. Try all caps for example in case you accidentally had caps lock on when setting it.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Success at last. Thank you for you help and patience.
