Hi,

I think you already tried to reset the password XXXXX the Forgot your password link as follows

https://account.live.com/ResetPassword.aspx


If the above failed to resolve the issue, the next step will be to use the Windows Live ID Validation page, at the following link

https://support.live.com/eform.aspx?productKey=wlidvalidation&ct=eformcs&scrx=1

Please provide as much details as you can to prove your identity.

If they can verify your identity, the password XXXXX be reset

you do not need to be 100% correct with the information(it is not always possible to do so).
But try to provide as accurately as you can.

The password XXXXX will depend upon the accuracy of information you provide.

(if you are absolutely unsure about one specific information, skip that field.

First try to fill up the fields with a * very carefully.
While resetting the password, they will look for such information. If you filled the form correctly, there should not be any problem.

Please note that it may take upto 24 hours.



Please let me know if you need more information on this

Thanks

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
