    How in the bloody heck do I get rid of auto sign in

    Ok, this has bothered me long enough!

    So I thought that I'd line my live account with my windows account. Bad move!

    Now I'm stuck with windows live services ALWAYS bloody signing me into my old account no matter how many times I hit that gal dang delete button.

    So, now that I got that out of my system [body]. So, how do I get rid of that thing ONCE AND FOR ALL so I can finish moving stuff to my new live account, and my new life.

    EDIT: I said screw it! I got what I needed.
