  1. Strange message about my account.


    Every day I get the same message: 'We need to fix your Microsoft account (your password has probably been changed). Select here to fix it in the Shared Experiences settings.'


    So I go to Shared Experiences, which tells me that 'Some of your accounts need attention', followed by a 'Fix now' button. So I click on Fix Now, and enter my password when told to, and then I get 'Oops - something went wrong. This service isn't available at the moment, please try again later'.

    (I could do without the 'Oops!' by the way. I'm not five years old).


    Apart from this minor annoyance everything in my system works perfectly well.


    So, 1) is there something wrong with my accounts? I can't find anything.

    and 2) why do I keep being told that there is, and how do I stop it?

    .

    :)

    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 Strange message about my account. :(

    Remove account


    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
