    Disconnect from the Internet.  Start Money, and log in offline.
    Remove your LiveID.  Do not attempt to change your LiveID.  If you
    already changed your LiveID, use the credentials that were in
    effect at the time that you saved that Money file.

    To remove the Live ID in Money 2006 or later, go to
    File-PasswordManager, and choose to remove your LiveID.  To remove
    or add a conventional password, also see File->PasswordManager.

    Do not attempt to change the password if you are not successfully into your file already. If you attempted that, it had no effect. To get into your file, you will need to use the credentials in effect when you were into your Money file last.

    Do not attempt to add a new LiveId to your Money file, even if it says "recommended".

  • Did you just re-install Money from an older CD? Is this a not a US or Canada version? If so, this is actually Money 2005 and you need to install the correct version listed in the second sticky post found in this forum. Money 2005 had an update that changed the file format and you need a copy of the updated program to open your file.
