    My Windows keeps saying there are issues with my accounts that need to be "Fixed"


    Hi Microsoft Forum,My Windows keeps saying there are issues with my accounts that need to be "Fixed". This prompt brings me to my Emails & Accounts settings. At one point i created a new email address and I gave it permission to access apps etc... but then i deleted it as i didnt need it anymore. In the settings this is correctly shown under the "Accounts used by email, calendar and contacts" heading. But the account still shows under the "Accounts used by other apps" heading.

    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 My Windows keeps saying there are issues with my accounts that need to be "Fixed" :(

    I suggest you backup your personalized files first before removing the account.
    To delete an account, follow these steps:
    1. Press WIN + X keys and click Command Prompt (Admin) from the menu.
    2. Type the following command and press Enter. Replace test with the name of your sister's account. Code:

    2. Select Settings and click on Choose what to clear.
    3. Check the boxes Browsing history, Cookies and saved website data and Cached data and files and click on Clear.
