Beneath the place where you put in the PIN should be a Signin Options link

Click on that and use your password to get into the system.

Then go to Settings to reset your PIN.

My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

I have the exact same problem. I can't remember my password, I don't know how, but I got in once to change my pin and used the new one, then it stopped working also, I can't log in or change my password at all. Is this a virus? How is the pin code changed?

Were you aware that this topic is some 18 months old ?  You would be better to start your own topic on this problem.
