    MS made me cry!https://www.eightforums.com/images/smilies/c


    MS made Outlook.com so secure that my live account no longer exists. I was having trouble accessing my email and vociferously complained about that. Problem solved. I no longer have an account to access. Never mind that I was using my live account to sign into my primary Admin account and can no longer do that. I used to like Windows 8 but MS's high handed deletion of my Windows Live account locked me out of my primary account and all of my emails and documents. If I could afford the apple solution, I would try that. I just wish the learning curve for Ubuntu was not so steep.

    You can report it to Microsoft.
    It is odd how you lost access to your live account.

    It is not that I can not access my account, MS says that my account does not exist.
