I stupidly changed my email to a outlook.com account from a hotmail.co.uk account and cannot get my old one back now, I need to link other websites ie twitter, skype etc to the new email account but I dont know how to. Any help appreciated

Try a System Restore, back to before you made the change.

System restore is unlikely to help as this is a change of e-mail address.

You will need to go to twitter, etc log in and change your e-mail address. Your old e-mail address will probably be recognised by them.

I made a similar mistake with the 'New' Outlook/Hotmail thingy - it mucked up my usual email address but a System Restore cured it for me!

Nothing lost by trying system restore but it must have changed a setting on your pc.

Yes, I think it did change a setting within my Incredimail program, but all is ok now.
