Passport/Hotmail reject

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.general (More info?)

At around 2005-08-06-13.30, after installing an MS Game & trying to register
it with my Passport/Hotmail login I got repeated rejection on my account. The
login software was giving me an old account name @hotmail.com that I closed a
few years ago and would not accept the one that has been active since. I
discontinued the current account which it surprisingly allowed me to do. It
would not allow me to discontinue old account name @hotmail.com even though
it kept replacing current account name with old whenever I entered password.
Truly unbelievable.

    Go to control panel>user accounts pick your account then click on change my
    ..net passport

    Does it say your current passport account is the new or the old one? if it's
    the old one change it.

    Do you have to register it? if not don't bother especially with .NET
    Passports and Hotmail.

    Spyware / Spam Magnets IMHO
