Error 80048821 on computer

I've been trying to download a game and have entered the verification code when it required me to download Windows LIVE on my Windows 8 PC. Then it required me to changed my password. Then finally when I went to login to the LIVE client it gave me the error code as listed in the title. I've tried clicking on "Forgot my password" but was brought to a page that wasn't available anymore. Forum community, you're my only hope. I've read elsewhere about this code but the advice given was only meant for Xbox users and not PC. Thanks.

Hm, you may want to try visiting this page here and see if you have 2-Step Verification on your account. If you have it turned on, you should have the ability to generate an App password, please do so. You'll want to use that App Password when it prompts you to enter it in on the verification page.

See if the above works for you. I've never personally heard of this issue happening to someone on a Windows 8 PC but hopefully that works.
