I am cannot access my windows live account or inform Windows Live of the problem. Can anyone inform me of the best way to contact them?

Possibly if you join the Windows Live help forum you'll get some good advice; click here

I cannot use the Windows Live help forum as I cannot sign in and cannot inform Windows Live that I cannot sign in.

I still cannot get anywhere at all with this. Is there anyway that I can get them to send me a copy of my password and or inform them that I cannot enter the pass word?

Try going to control panel- programs- programs and features- Windows Live Essentials and click on uninstall/change. Select 'repair all'.
If that fails then the only thing I can think of is try to create a new account; click here
Use the " or get a Windows Live email address".
If that works then use that addy to get help.

I think that the next thing that you should do is to download CCleaner (it's free) and run it to clear the Cookies away. It may be something such as a Cookie that is causing your Denial of Access.

It might be worthwhile running the Registry Cleaner as well.

Not sure if this is any good.

Try buteman's solution
I suddenly found that I could not access Windows Live. After having searched around for a couple of days and even been persuaded to journey into the risky (for some) registry I tried most other solutions. I came across the possible password solution which immediately resolved the problem. Apparently, and unknown to me, my account had been subjected to a possible high jack attempt. When this happens apparently a password block is applied, but they didn't alert me
