    Try this.

    Go to https://account.live.com

    You should see your account information. In the line that shows your email click on the Change link and follow the prompts:
    Windows Live ID: your@address.net Change

    Or use change alias for your primary login , I'm assuming you are using a current windows live account to login and not a local login.
