Before you do anything at all, please can you explain further:

"have also lost my password for windows live"

download free program SIW from snapfiles click here and run it and it will display your system info.
In the lefthand pane if you look under: 'Software' and the last in that list is 'Passwords' if you click on that hopefully the password you want will be displayed in the righthand pane.

There is also a tool in the top menu bar that looks like a magnifying glass called 'Eureka!' click on that, it is a password revealer that you can use when you have other programs open to reveal the passwords
