    Login problem , suspect corrupted files


    Hello ,

    I have a paid account with a chat site ( to play music ) I have been using for years without issues.
    Suddenly the correct pw doesn't work , I have tried help desk, pw reset, reinstall several times , also new pw /get email confirmation but still get " login problem, check spelling " ( no issues logging in with a free account on same laptop though)

    However the same password rejected on this laptop , works fine on a different computer ( Win 7 home premium ) .

    Help desk told me to delete nickname from the program's "manage accounts" section , but that option doesn't exist and they can not help , they say, the problem is my computer > Lenovo E 530 Win 8.1 64 bit <
    The only possible reason for all this ( I think ) could be a corrupted file associated with that account and as a last resort I am thinking of deleting account from the registry .

    I know editing/deleting stuff from the registry can be risky and frowned upon, but I am aware of the issues involved .
    Created a new restore point , I would ONLY be deleting files associated with that account , after that I would reinstall the program and with fingers crossed , try logging in again.

    Before I go down that path , I would like to get an opinion and or tips on this issue..

    Thanks in advance .. Cheers Shopgirl
