    I downloaded and installed a plugin called “better wp security” thinking it would help secure the site. After installing and going through the requested “changes” I found I could NO LONER log in and was locked out from my site. Now I can no longer log in, either through the WP Admin page, or the WordPress.com. I am worried this plugin has stolen my site.

    The blog I need help with is laptoptester.com.

    We do not provide support for WordPress.ORG software here at WordPress.COM If you don’t have a username account at WordPress.org click http://wordpress.org/support/ and register one on the top right hand corner of the page that opens, so you can post to the support forums there and receive advice from WordPress.org bloggers.

    I figured it out and removed the plug in. Never again will I use something that could do that. Thank you for your time!
