Security Issue: Kinda OT to NS
I will be returning the PC I am using for a refund. I am concerned about it's still being associated with my Microsoft Account. I have done all the standard recommended methods of removing passwords,etc, and have done a secure wipe of passwords with a secure delete program. Yet, MSN often was still saying Hello (My Name) - I changed the name and now it says "Hello Tomxxs" but not sure that was a good idea as it might have affected my Microsoft Account.
What I am most concerned about is when I sign-into Windows the login page still shows my email address that I registered with Microsoft with and a password generator might break into my Microsoft Account. I realize that this has little, if anything,to do with NS, but as it is security-related and concerns a PC with NS installed I am hoping this post will be allowed to remain and suggestions offered.
I have been considering doing a reset while not connected to the net,
