How can fix the corrupted profile in xbox 360?

                      You will need to recover your Gamertag.
                        To recover a gamertag
                        To recover your gamertag, you need the associated Windows Live ID and password for your Xbox LIVE account.
                      1. If you're signed into Xbox LIVE with another gamertag, press the Guide button, and then press X on your controller to sign out.
                      2. Press the Guide button again, and select Recover Gamertag.
                      3. Select Recover Gamertag again.
                      4. Enter your Windows Live ID and password for the gamer profile that you want to recover.
                      5. Follow the on-screen directions.
                      • You can enter information using a USB keyboard, the Xbox 360 Chatpad, or your Xbox 360 controller and the on-screen keyboard.
                      • For Xbox LIVE child accounts, the associated Xbox LIVE adult account credentials are required to complete the recover gamertag procedure.

                    Forgot my xbox live pass code can you help?

                    you have to recover your gamertag. I read your question and set a passcode on my xbox and tried this myself. click on recover gamertag and fill in your windows live ID and password. This doesn't totally solve the problem. You will have to do this everytime you want to log into live. You can try to do a hard rest. This will put the console back into the factory defaults. I'm not sure what this will do or how it will effect your gamesaves.

                    Go to the system info screen under console settings. HIt Left trigger, Right trigger, x, y, Left bumper, Right bumper, up, left bumper, left bumper, X.
                    You have to enter the combo quickly for it to work. If you are using the live pass code to keep kids or roommates off of the xbox and you do finally remember what it is I would suggest writing it down on a small piece of paper and hiding it behind the face plate or under the HDD.

                    Signed up to xbox via online xbox, not console.

                    What you should try and do is set up a "guest" profile. I'm assuming you just bought your Xbox and have turned it on for the first time? Hence you need a gamertag to get your Xbox set up.
                    They simply need to have a profile on there so you can go to the dashboard. (Hence why people usually create their Xbox Live Gold accounts on their actual Xbox 360.
                    Forget for a moment, that you already have a gamertag. Create a new gamertag (you will automatically get a silver account) once you get to the dashboard, you will be able to go to profiles and the very last option and select "recover gamertag" because at the moment, your gamertag isn't on your actual console yet. Put in the details of your gamertag, password, email etc. And accept the terms & use then recover the gamertag.
                    I'm not sure, but you may be able to recover your gamertag the very first time you turn on your Xbox (which is what you may be having trouble with). If you could, let me know some more of the details and I could give you a more specific answer.
                    1. Recover gamertag


                    1. Create a new gamertag (NOT gold, NOT on
                    2. Recover gamertag through profiles --> recover gamertag

                    Hope I was of some help.

                    Recovring gamertag problem

                    Corrupt File (microsoft cant let you recover gamertag due to mods hacks and such) that is possibly what has happened. You downloaded a corrupt file and now microsoft has found something wrong. You can no only make a new gamertag and ask for free xbox live for compensation. (you might get it)
