@Oliver Salzburg♦ , my question doesnt talk about microsoft account whereas your solution does answer to a question which is regarding microsoft account . –  Royi Namir May 2 '13 at 12:58
    
My answer isn't the only one in that question. Either way, does the described process not work for you? –  Oliver Salzburg May 2 '13 at 13:56
    
@OliverSalzburg I don't want to take any chances on my machine. and I don't think that Microsoft account is like a regular user profile account.and that's why I think its not a dup. (my opinion :-) –  Royi Namir May 2 '13 at 14:17
    
@OliverSalzburg also , the other answer on other question is regarding Windows XP/Vista. (he actually bolds it). and besides , the question itself is tagged as Microsoft account. so its definitely not a dup. ( IMHO). –  Royi Namir May 2 '13 at 14:25
