    Windows 8


    Hi Brink! I have not heard back from the Window's administrator who asked me for my Account Name (Dec 5). I just re-sent the information that he requested. I will let you know if the problem is resolved. Thank you!

    Windows 8


    Well, the Windows administrator never messaged me back even after I e-mailed him again. I had a computer technician help me for 4 hours and we finally got the problem fixed. The resolution was along the lines of what you suggested, Drowe! We switched my account to a local account, edited the e-mail address, then switched back. Ugh! A frustrating process but ultimately I'm just glad it is fixed! Thank you Windows Eight Forums for being willing to help me!!
