Hi,

I'm sorry about the issue. Do you remember the email address for your Microsoft account?

What do you need to use the Microsoft account for?

Do you have windows xp, vista, or 7, or 8, 10?

Can we do a remote support session, so I can troubleshoot the issue directly on your computer together with you?

Please reply at the box below. Thank you,
