    Admin account appears to be in sons account now


    My son was on my PC yesterday trying to login to his Microsoft account so we could watch a movie, we ended up connecting his Xbox to my TV. I am (was) the admin on my PC, there is no PW to login so when I power up the PC it used to take me directly to my Desktop. When I powered up my PC this morning it came up with a login screen with his name and a PW box. I donít see anything to click to change account login because itís the only account on the PC. I logged in using his account and PW. I went to Start/Settings/ Accounts/ I can see 1 account with his name, email account as Admin. First it appears to me that he somehow changed my Admin account to his information and second it looks like itís trying to login to a Microsoft account because now it wants to verify the email on Outlook, which I donít use.

    How do I delete this account, get me back on as admin and get my PC back to no PW needed to login and goes directly to my Desktop?

    That fixed it, thanks. I did get a bunch of verify your account notifications which I just right clicked and selected ignore notification.
