Customer Question
I accidentally set up...

I accidentally set up the wrong email as my microsoft account when setting up my computer. I cant change it and now i cant download apps i cant figure out how to change anything. Ive looked through control panel and everything i even deleted the genetic credentials related to the account and its still there. Its a good thing that didnt mess up anything. Can anyone solve this?

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
