    that would be related to the Microsoft email acct you used to log into windows with, if you don't use the people app just un-pin it from start. I don't use mine but when I look into it all the info in it is from facebook comments people make. im still looking to find a way to delete infro from it

    Actually guys, what I did was to delete myself from the People entries, which m turn deleted all the 45 links I had there. However, Brink had the correct way in his tutorial: "How to Link Contacts in People App in Windows 8 and 8.1. At the bottom of the tutorial in Paragraph 5 is a sub-heading titled: "To Unlink a Contact in People App". I tried it and it works. When I was playing around with the "Links" I noticed that if you clicked on one it would go into the "Suggestions" column, but I didn't realise at the time that that actually unlinked them from me. Thanks again fellows. "Happy Holidays'.
