Does anyone know how to disable an xbox live gamertag? Answered

Last night someone stole my 360 and my playstation 2 and PSP, laptop, and TV.  I don't need to worry about anything except my 360 right now because that automatically signs me into Xbox live.

So I need to figure out how to disable my xbox live account so the thieves don't use it anymore. Anyone know what they are doing?  If it helps, I still have the PC version of Halo 2, so I can sign into xbox live using that game since its on a "Games for windows" platform.

You could try killing yourself, there is a chip in your brain that goes off whenever your heart ceases to beat for more than 48 hours. When this chip goes off, it automatically sends a signal to the nearest internet connection which then goes onto the Xbox Live network and disables your account.

www.xbox.com

Use that website to sign in with your email, and then disable the account from there.

First off, I'm sorry. Second you might be able to disable it from the Microsoft website. Third how did it happen? Did you leave a window open or something?

The front door is very thick.  At least an inch and a half.  My bedroom door is around an inch.  They broke through both.

Well, if you know anyone on your friends list in the real world, go to their place and see what you're account is playing or when it was last on. I can't imagine this happening anywhere in 'Ousiana except New Orleans.

How about just changing the password, here:
support.xbox.com/support/en/us/nxe/xboxlive/myaccount/windowsliveid/windowsliveidpassword.aspx

Or tell Microsoft the thing's been nicked, give them the crime number and officer's details, ask if they'll report anyone trying to use your account, with their IP address:
support.xbox.com/support/en/us/nxe/contactus.aspx

The first one is totally useless since you have to go into the xbox menus to change the password according to them which I obviously can't do.

I don't use XBox live, but since you didn't say the second one was useless, it that an option? You know how tight-arsed Microsoft can be about things, they might be interested in fighting petty-crime?

First, change your password, like Lemonie said. Then, call your local police, not 911(that'll get you in a lot of trouble), and have them ping the IP address. Then, they can find where it is, assuming, you're not signed out, and then they'll arrest the guy and you'll get your Xbox, PS2, PSP, laptop, and television back.
