becase of a dreaded blue screen I have lost my steam account I can retreive it but only by using a code problem is steam say they have sent this code to my hotmail address which i don1t use anymore and i don1t beleive it exists anyway if it is lurking around in my computer where is it likely to be and how can I get to it. Daft thing is steam have got my current email address so why didn`t they use it. Help please
You could try - download the free SIW (system information tool) click here run it and then look under 'Passwords' if your hotmail a/c is lurking somewhere it should with luck show you it. On my pc it shows me my old email addy's and passwords for quite a few deleted email accounts. This is presuming you used to collect it from your mail program on your pc and not purely a Webmail hotmail addy.
Unless you have verified your new e-mail address with steam the codes will be sent to your old address, this is to stop people from hi-jacking your account.
What you will have to do is go into your account and click on settings, that should show the valid e-mail address that steam have for you, if it doesn't then you will have to contact steam through support and try to alter things from there.
