    Mysterious Account Notification


    "You need to fix your Microsoft Account. Most likely your password has changed. Click here to fix it in Shared Experiences"


    I receive the above notification in the Notification Center 2-3 times a week. It is like a normal notification that appears in the bottom right of screen.

    - When I click, it takes me directly to Shared Experiences where there is a notice that account is normal and no action needs to be taken.

    - My password has not changed. I do not share with any other devices.

    - Strangely, the notice does not remain in the Notification Center like other notifications but disappears.

    - Scans by WD are negative for malware/spyware.

    - Thoughts ? Any similar experiences ?

    (Note: I find it unusual that MSN would use the word fix. Most notifications are worded "_____ needs attention or other grammar)

    :)

  2. (SOLVED/CLOSED)looking for help with Android phone CONSTANT wireless signal notification

    Yeah, thats not a solution she is interested in......I've suggested that course of action. Thanks though.

    Just to clarify, I feel that there MUST be a step, or series of steps to turn off JUST the wireless notification sound. Thats what Im driving @ here.

    Remove account


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