  1. Remove unknown emails from user account


    On my wife's Windows 10 PC, she has or had a local account, while I have a windows account synced across several machines.
    We've just noticed that this appears to have been switched to a windows account, linked to a couple of email addresses, neither of which she recognises.

    One of these accounts seems to have added itself to our Family Group as well, as an organizer.

    Is there any way I can remove those accounts via my admin user account and revert her account back to a local account?
    Thanks...

    :)

    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:

    Unknown account removal

    In a 'permissions' dialog an attempt to remove an UNKNOWN ACCOUNT prompts that inheritance first must be disabled. Two options are offered...

    1) Convert inherited permissions to explicit permissions on this object
    2) Remove all inherited permissions from the object

    Which should be chosen, and will other accounts be affected? Or, would it be prudent to ignore the unknown account?

    This is an "Sxxx" account and does not appear in the USERS account list, nor with other normal registry accounts.

    Remove unknown emails from user account

    Unknown User Account created after upgrading to windows 10. It comes back if I delete it.

    Original Title: Unknown User Account

    Hello,

    Since I upgraded to Windows 10 I am seeing an account that I did NOT create. So I deleted it by going into Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > User Accounts > Manage Accounts then I click on the unknown user account and delete it. That said.... It
    comes back. I have also followed the below suggestions from other posts and still does not seem to work.

    Let’s try simple steps and check if the user account is detecting and try removing it.

    • Press Windows key + R, type netplwiz and press Enter.

    • Check if the user account is appearing on the list.

    • Click on user account and click on Remove. (If user account appear on the list).
    Please advise.

    Thank you
