    This is total nonsense! Do you really think Windows would even exist if MS would deliberately confuse users?

    I'm curious why one would want to use the OS without using the Microsoft account? Seems to me like crippling the system.

    Heheh, that's very funny. Wait: You may in fact be serious.
    Seriously? Like when they dupe users into using Microsoft accounts without their consent or even knowledge? You've got to be kidding. I will agree with you that in some cases these things are just the result of incompetence, but there is absolutely no way some others are not deliberate.

    I always install / setup Windows with a local account to get the user profile named as I wish instead of five character acronym as profile name I would get if setting up with a Microsoft account.

    When on desktop after setting up Windows, first thing I do then is to switch to Microsoft account.

    If additional user accounts will be set up, I'll do the same: set up as local, sign in, switch to Microsoft account.

    This way Microsoft account user jane.doe@SomeEmailService.com gets user profile Jane instead of janed, the name her profile and profile folder had got if account was setup as Microsoft account, user joe.breil@SomeEmailService.com will get profile Joe instead of joebr, or user sebastian.smith@SomeEmailService.com will get profile Sebastian instead of sebas.

    Just FYI, that error message is telling you that you have Macrium Image Guardian turned on for those files. It's a lot of words just to say "you're not allowed to delete them that way. They are protected". Your options are to delete them thru the Macrium UI, or turn Guardian off, completely or just that folder where stored.

    W10 FCU & W10 Insider

    I did not go back to W7, I never left. I still run Win 10 FCU, W10 Insider, Linux Mint and ChromeOS. I use W7 now and then and still enjoy it.

    My greater point is why one wouldn't want to use the OS with a MS Account

    Well I've never used my MSA since the Technical Preview days and never felt duped since...

    I finally got around to doing a clean install of FCU (after numerous driver and app compatibility issues on an upgrade install) and I must say it's getting pretty close to the Win 7 yardstick in performance and reliability. (btw...Win 8 was a nightmare [less so 8.1 to be fair] , so no comparison there)

    Yes, I understood that. I just explained why it might be a good idea to always use a local account when setting up Windows, even if you want to use Microsoft account when setup is done.

    In my opinion installing without network connection only to assure user gets initial account as a local account is somewhat overreacting, but my point was that even a Microsoft account user might want to do it to be sure, then when on desktop connect to network and switch to Microsoft account.

    I don't have a MS account. I'd prefer Microsoft not to track my every move. I don't need OneDrive, I have a network drive for weekly incremental and monthly Full backups. I don't have a smart phone, so don't need to sync to anything. When I'm not browsing, my main use of the PC is video editing and processing (local apps) and spreadsheets (again, with local apps). Why would I want a MS account?
