W8 - Microsoft Account

Sun Nov 11, 2012 11:28 am

Hi, when I installed W8, I inadvertently entered a Hotmail Account and Password not realizing that by doing this, I would required to enter my Password EVERY time I start or restart W8. My question is, how do I remove / delete the Hotmail requirement from W8 so that I will be asked to enter a Password every time W8 starts or restarts?
Thank you,
Bob
