    Remove Microsoft account


    I installed a microsoft account to use some ot their apps. Big mistake. It has taken over my and slowed it to a crawl. Further more I now have to log in, using a password, and I never had to do that before.


    I went into the account settings and deleted the account but it really does not delete the user account.

    I just want to get rid of it and return to my original setups.
