    OY! did I mess up?


    I upgraded to Windows 8 months ago. Of course I continue to get emails to...upgrade!
    Well, last night I forwarded the link to my wife. She went through the process, paid, through
    PayPal the 39.99 then downloaded and completed the install. The problem is her install is
    saying my name.
    I can guess that the link was connected to me but, is there anyway to "correct" this?

    Thank you for any help.

    Hello John, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Where is it saying your name at?

    Do you mean the user account?

    If so, you could create her another administrator account (local or Microsoft), sign in to it, then delete your user account.
