Microsoft Account Email Address is Incorrect

What do I do when I cannot log into my Microsoft Account because my (used all the time) email address is, apparently, incorrect? I cannot get into the community or do anything.
I have had to use my office account just to ask the question.

Thanks Vinod but this does not help. Whenever I try to sign in to my account with my email address (which is the account name at the top of the PC Settings page), I get the message that the Microsoft account is incorrect. Has my account been compromised?

As there as been no other advice, I assume I am stuffed and not able to use my Microsoft Account?

Action Centre keeps telling me it is important that I enter my most recent password.

However, when I try to log into my Microsoft Account, using the correct email address, I get the message that the password is incorrect. When I click on "Can't access your account?" and try to reset password, I get the message that the Microsoft Account is incorrect.

They cannot both be incorrect. In the meantime, I can do nothing to update Windows 8, access the Community or anything.

What use is this?? There is obviously a fault in something, whether Windows 8 or Microsoft Account i do not know.
