When I did try to create a Windows Live account, I tried entering my Yahoo Mail account, it told me that the 'username' already exist & all I needed to do was type in my password. This was odd since this is the first time I entered Windows Live.

& off course, I don't know the password so I tried forgot password & now its telling me that the 'username' I inputted was incorrect.

A friend told me that only a hotmail account can be used to register for Windows Live. Is that true?
