    Removing Device


    I have an old computer that was connected to my Microsoft account with Windows 10. I no longer have the device and removed it from my devices on Microsoft account. I have also changed my Microsoft password. Will the new user be able to log in to my account or Windows 10 if I removed the device? Will they have any access to my info/account or Windows 10? I would rather they not have any connection with my account or info. What would they need to do to reconnect to Windows 10 on the computer?

    :)

  2. Remove Devices

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand that you are facing issues while removing the device from your Microsoft account as it keeps popping back after removing.



    It could be possible that the device was using OneDrive with the same Microsoft account and that might be the reason you are able to see the device listed under your profile. I would suggest you to remove the device from OneDrive
    and see if that helps.



    You can follow the steps to remove the device from OneDrive.



    1. Login to
      https://onedrive.live.com
      .
    2. Now on the left hand pane click on PC’s.
    3. Now click on the devices that are listed under PC’s and on the right hand side click on
      Remove PC.


    If the issue persists, please get back to us with the results of the troubleshooting steps to assist you further.



    Regards,

    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:
      Code:
      net user test /del

    Removing Device

    Can't remove disconnected (ghost) network device


    Thanks for the suggestion, but it can't remove the NIC:

    Removing Device [​IMG]


    It's the only Intel I219-V that shows up in the device list of the DeviceCleaner program (it shows only non-present devices as I understand). Otherwise, the tool works - I found a ghost replica of the integrated GPU (Intel HD 530) and could remove it. Only the NIC gives this error message on removal, which is probably the reason I can't remove it the normal way through the device manager.
