I can not log on to my main screen name. It will not accept

Customer Question

I can not log on to my main screen name. It will not accept my normal password, and keeps regressing to the sign on page even when I tick 'forgot password'. I am on lap top and can only log on through TCP/IP

It is not this screen name.
