Go to My Controls, look on the far left column. See heading of 'Options' part way down, says Change Email Address. Select that, and it will bring up page with your current email and 3 boxes for your emails: new one, confirm new one, and old one. Plus a security code you will need to enter.

PLEASE NOTE: You will have to re-activate your account after changing your email address.
An email will be sent to the email address you specify below, outlining what you need to do.

Proceeding with this action will log you out. It is strongly recommended that you reset your password before changing your email address if you are unable to remember your password.

The only thing it changes is the associated email for validation of your Bleeping Computer account. Does nothing with any other aspects of your account here.
