    locked out of win10 using MS account


    hi all
    i have recently upgraded from Win8.1 to Win 10 and I used the MS account to login
    but now it does not let me login anymore, i did a pw reset for my MS account already and can login to my MS account from any device but the message showing when I use my MS account pw to login to my win10 laptop:
    cannot verify account you are offline, use the offline pw to login,
    even when connected to the internet, how can i get rid of this stupid MS account and login with a local admin.
    i do not have a win10cd i did the upgrade online.
    thanks for your help, much appreciated
