topgundcp is correct, it was a legitimate question and I thank him for his advise. My problem in following it is I couldn't get to account A to log in, Apparently (according to Dell), the transfer over-road that account so that only account B was accessible. Neither the folks I spoke to at Microsoft or Dell seemed to know why I couldn't access account B. The fellow at MS took me to the accountlive web site but that only reset the account A password (and, of course, that didn't help sine I couldn't get to that account to be able to use the new password).
End of saga: On the advise of Dell, the new machine is currently being reset remotely by wiping it clean and reinstalling 8.1
Moral: Be very careful when using "Windows 'Easy' Transfer" !!!
