    go back to windows 7

    I know how to do it, what I don't know is, how to remove your account. it says, before I can revert back to windows 7, I have to remove my account. but how? I am the only account in my computer. should I make another? what if the system tell me to remove it too? this is confusing

    Where are you seeing a message about removing your account? Can you post a screen capture of it?

    Hello brisingr,

    If you have a Microsoft account, then that may be why you are getting this message.

    If you do, then switching your account to a local account should hopefully stop this message.

    Would that be because Windows 7 has no support for using an E-mail address for a logon account?

    That would be my assumption as well. :)
