Windows Live ID

by MYHEARTISUNDEAD / March 22, 2011 4:26 PM PDT

So I recently discovered that my Windows Live ID has been blocked. This means (to my UTTER ANNOYANCE) that I cant access my email (which contains some very important emails) nor messenger (for social purposes). The Windows Live Support is an utter pain in the *** and 3 posts later they keep deleting them (I suppose??).

The forum format is so god awful that I dont actually know what's happening to my posts, needless to say im in the dark, very frustrated and very concerned that I might not get access to my account again.

Ive cleaned my computer of the single adware causing the problem (hypersensitive much?).

Does anyone have ANY idea how I can get into contact with these clowns to unblock my account. Keep in mind ive tried their "service" 3 times and to no avail, with NO message of anything further I should do.

To add to my problems, I have an issue with putting any of my information online, so the 4 years ago that I made the email in question, I honestly dont recall half the crap I put in, including that of the secret question, so I cant even reset my password.

All I need them to do is to look at my plea and see that im NOT part of a botnet. My suspicion is that Windows Live are infact running off bots and automatic responses themselves. Irony aside, this is kind of a problem for me.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
