    Hi,
    Don't remember the email account was it a hotmail email or outlook.com email account
    What are the chances of remembering the password to the forgotten email address 100%

    Shouldn't matter ms tags the machine hardware and ip address after upgrading
    Clean install it should self activate then you can start over.

    Hi,
    As long as you know your email address and password you'll be fine.
