Granted, this won't fix anything if you are locked out already, but, once you DO get back in do this and be happy:

While viewing your Security Questions and Answers, hit Print Screen. Make sure you can see ALL 5 questions & answers.

Open Paint (it's under Accessories) and find+hit Paste. Then find+hit Save, name the file, save, done. It will normally save to My Documents/My Pictures.... a least in Win 7

Then, when you get stumped, just bring up your image, and your in.

of course you could just choose Q n A's that you will remember , failing that you could always write them down manually aswell, not as easy as your tip though.

if you didn't do this and if you really can't remember them, you might try the following, IF:

- you use autocomplete in your browser
- you didn't throw away cookies
- you are on the computer you registered the questions

Go create a new account, and go to the area you can put the security questions in.
If you are lucky, autocomplete will fill in the answers you gave.

Worked for me anyway
