Windows Live ID Signup is Broken

    Question

  • I've tried all week to create a new Windows Live ID. I tried in IE and in Firefox. Between two different sites to do it on (one from the Windows Live Messenger link, and another found online), I get one of two errors:

    1) I get a general error saying there was an error with some funky numbers underneath the message. I wasn't able to duplicate after the first attempt today because when trying again, I get error #2 below.

    2) From signup.live.com. I believe this one may be caused by the previous failure. Plus, the message is a lie because I didn't create any ID's

    "You've reached the daily limit for creating Windows Live IDs. Please wait a day and try to sign up again or contact support for assistance.
      OK 

    Error code: 450 : 0x800482d5 : 2010-02-24T22:09:56 GMT"



    Please help!

    Oh, and by the way, I'm submitting to this forum because the "Start a New Question or Discussion" page is broken as well. Once I select the "Windows Live" option under "Select a Forum Category", no appropriate options come up in the "Select a Forum" listbox. But a forum selection is required to even submit. This is *VERY* frustrating folks.
