    have to login every single time I resume/use computer

    I was forced into creating a MS account in order to try out an app that I wanted to try. Now I have to login every single time I resume/use the computer. I really resent this level of control over a machine which I own. This is giving me good reason to ditch MS products completely. I have tried the above but still cannot fix the login requirement. I would also like to delete the stupid MS account. They really don't need to know when I use the computer! A lock code could provide security if needed without MS being involved. Please advise.
