Verify Annoyance

Post by Roderunner »

Hi Folks, I have 2 Windows Live ID'S. Fortunately I don't need to access them too often. When I do I always get as my 2 png's. Getting a code (2 options) entering it, then click 'Don't ask me again on this device' then 'Verify' never seems to work. I access them from my one and only Windows PC only.
Sorry about the images, I tried to resize them.

Do you use a 'cleaner' such as CCleaner? If so, make sure that you set it NOT to remove live.com cookies.

Hi Hans, just checked Ccleaner, and live.com was in the list to keep.

If the domain is not specified as login.live.com, it probably should be.

I've seen this happen after Windows upgrades and after browser updates. I can't say for sure which triggers this. But, whatever mechanism Microsoft is using has determined the device signature is different. Not sure how to get around it.
