I haven't used my Hotmail account for a few years and just recently I have started to receive calendar alerts. The problem is; I can’t remember my Live ID or password as it was s o long ago. My question is; what can I do to delete the account given that I can’t access it?

first you can go to their webside and request a password reset that will be send to your email and other emails that might be connected to that account

Thank you Alvine,
I have tried to request a password reset but without knowing my Windows Live ID I can't send it?

DId you have any credit card associated with the account ? -- If so try going to the Billing and account management sign in -- And enter the E-mail address that is getting the calendar alerts and use the forgot password prompt to have the password sent to you and you may be able to access the acount to delete it.

Most accounts I use associate user names and passwords with e-mail addresses so that either can be sent to the associated e-mail address if lost or forgotten. I don't use Windows Live but I can't imagine it being any different.

I didn't have any credit cards associated with the account and I have tried all the passwords & email address's I can remember over the years with no success. Does anyone know how I can locate an email address for Windows Live to contact them? I can't find one on their site that doesn't require me to log in.

And if you could sent it, you wouldn't be able to look at it because it would be in your password protected inbox.
