Windows 7: Hotmail, Windows Live, and XBox Live

Hotmail, Windows Live, and XBox Live

So, I was trying to delete my hotmail account.
Turns out, that you cannot delete the account because it is attached to your windows live account. Which is permanently linked to my XBox live account, which i set up to try to play Halo 2 on my computer (I don't own an XBox), and then never used because it didn't work.

So after spending about a half hour struggling with their HORRIBLE XBox website, I had to call support. I asked them about deleting the XBox Live account, and they had a good reason for not having an option on their website: You can't delete the account!

WHAT!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Apparently, it will delete itself after an undetermined time period (I had not used mine in over 6 months, probably closer to a year). Ok..... But I wanted mine deleted tonight to reset my account. NOPE!

So the tech guy said that I could just change the XBox Live account over to a new Windows Live account. But I could only do it on a console. I DON'T HAVE ONE!

WOW.
Just, wow.

Fine. So I will just see if I can set up a whole new set, but I don't think I can.

Anyone have a solution to this?

So.. just to gather a summary here;

You are 17, and your father does not allow you to play a game that is rated 17+

Weird. Feel bad for you, its a fun game. =)

Oh, I have still played it, but I don't own it. It was an alright game. I always sucked at online FPS games though.
