The other day I noticed a requirement to give my password for my windows live id. I have no idea what it is and no record. I started the reset password similar to this forum. (By the way here it took me maybe 2 seconds. Thanks) I was able to get the 1st step but my second step requires a phone number in text and phone that I no longer have as I have changed it. Now I'm instructed to wait 30 days and I think I will get to reset similar to this web page. Now I notice that my whole computer is dependant on that password which I don't use to log in. This is day 3 and I am worried. What can I do and what functions and I unable to do. What happens after 30 days? Do I lose data? This has been going on for about 3 months as I chickened out and canceled the 30 day wait period. I now started it again an am at day 2 receiving warnings that unless I give the correct password I will have to wait to make changes for 30 days?
