    Deleting Administrator Account


    I recently bought a new desktop comp with windows 8. I have been using o2 email (with incredimail). I entered my o2 email as the administrator but realise now I should have created a microsoft live account. How do I delete this account and start again without having to resort to refreshing the comp or anything else so extreme. I tried system restore but it didn't get rid of the account.
