  1. Windows 10 Admin Account


    Alright Peeps


    I have got a laptop with windows 10 on it.. Had it for sometime now.. My original Admin Account which is a Microsoft Account has been comprised. That Microsoft Account has been deleted and I have created a brand new Microsoft Account.. I want to remove/delete the old account from laptop.. Or rather I want to change over keep all my files on the computer that I have done under that account and move it to a new admin account that I have created on windows 10

    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:

    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 Windows 10 Admin Account :(
