Hi, my name is ***** ***** welcome to JustAnswer!

Since you mention that this is Microsoft asking you for the code, I'm assuming that you have a Hotmail, Outlook.com or Live.com e-mail address. If this is correct, then typically when they ask you for this code they give you the option to receive that code either via a text message on your phone or via a secondary e-mail address.

If you don't see any such option, then my suggestion would be to try to reset your password ***** their password ***** wizard. You can access this by clicking on the following link:

https://account.live.com/ResetPassword.aspx

That should allow you to reset your password ***** regain access to your account. If that does not resolve the issue, then please see the following Microsoft article for further information on getting back into your account:

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/outlook/forgotten-password

Pay particular attention to the paragraph on choosing "I can't use any of these options" and filling out the form for Microsoft.

This should do it for you. If you have any other questions, you can reply back to me via the "Reply to Expert" tab at any time. And please remember to use the rating box to rate my answer at least "OK Service" or better so that I receive credit for asssisting you.
