Hello. My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

It is not asking you to go to that on 'that' computer. It doesnt matter what device

you use to change your live password. You can even do this on a phone if you want.

Click this link: Reset your password. to set up

https://login.live.com/login.srf?wa=wsignin1.0&rpsnv=13&ct=1500049471&rver=6.7.6643.0&wp=MBI_SSL_SHARED&wreply=https:%2F%2Fmail.live.com%2Fdefault.aspx%3Frru%3Dinbox&lc=1033&id=64855&mkt=en-us&cbcxt=mai
Choose the reason that you need password ***** then click Next.

Enter your email address when you made your Microsoft account.

Enter the characters you see on the screen (this procedure makes us know you're not a robot), then click Next.

If you've added security information to your account, we'll send a one-time code to the alternate phone number or email address you provide. You'll be able to set a new password ***** you enter that code on the next screen.

Then you go to the computer you have that email on that is telling you to go to live.com.

Make sure it is connected to the internet. THIS IS IMPORTANT.

Put in the new password. If it doesnt take it, reboot the computer and make sure it is on internet

and connected to wifi/ethernet cord. And put the password ***** there.

It will allow you to log on.

Send me the results in a reply.
