Have reinstalled W8.1 on an SSD.
When turning computer on it shows my Microsoft account.....ie- my name@ xxxxxxxxx.com which was my microsoft account enabling me to download from Store.
After numerous attempts to open including codes supplied by Microsoft and not having a password accepted the only option I had was to delete it in "Security" in "Control Panel"
Next I tried creating a new account (this I did with three different Alias). Each time the new names and passwords were rejected because my original account which I had deleted appeared as the Alias Account and the new passwords were not applicable.
Next I tried going to my original account but was informed it did not exist......have contacted the robotic system employed by Microsoft at least 50 times being issued codes by three different e-mail addresses as well as by phone and been informed successfully done..
Does anyone know of a way I can delete an account which has already been deleted without the password. The original deleted account still appears on startup. ie- my name@ xxxxxxxxxx.com
