    You can't remove your Microsoft data from the Notebook/Laptop if you don't have physical possession of it but if you can access your Microsoft account from another computer you can change the password which should prevent anyone else using it.

    Sign into your Microsoft account. There should be a "devices" tab towards the right. Open that tab and remove the device from the list. Also, change your Microsoft account password as recomended.

    Sign in to account.live.com. If your device is listed like in screenshot 1, click 'See all'. On the next screen, if you've activated 'Locate device' you'll see it's location if it was signed in. The Remove laptop' option is highlighted. Good Luck.

    It was also listed under devices > Apps and game devices..
    Whoever stole it renamed the laptop to gingersnaps...
    I remove this one too right?

    Also, I had the laptop to automatically login to the desktop instead of constantly putting in a password. I changed that on my tablet pc to always ask for a password and changed my password too. That would help right?
