    Deleted Microsost Account keeps reappearing on Windows 10 1903


    Hi,


    I am having an issue, I deleted a Microsoft account from my Windows 10 PC however approx every 24 hours it reappears on my PC and i get a Popup to fix the account. When i remove again same thing happens.


    I have checked the registry and also net user only shows local user


    Any ideas?


    Many thanks,

    John.

    Strange Windows 10 User Account issue.

    Unfortunately I had done those steps numerous reboots, it just, reappears for no good reason. The base account isn't even a Microsoft account, it's a local account.

    I haven't quite tried the built in administrator account on W10, but so far in my experience on my own computer, the built in account seemed to have absolutely no more control than I did on my own.

    It's just strange, I go in, it warns me twice about deleting the account, then it's gone. Reboot, and it's back?

    EDIT: Just to specify, both command line and Netplwiz both say only HIS account exists on the computer, it doesn't list this rogue account. This is what I meant in my first post about the fact that even Windows doesn't seem to believe it exists, HALF the time. *Frown Deleted Microsost Account keeps reappearing on Windows 10 1903 :(
