Question

Windows Login - User Reset

I recently bought a PIPO X7 that came pre-installed with Win 8.
Somewhere in the setup process (about 2 months ago) I was forced to create an Outlook.com address.

I've never used that account and for life of me I can't remember what the password is.

Now it automatically updated and rebooted.

It seems that missing account is associated with the master user account on the PC and I need use the email address to even log into windows. ?!?!?

I attempted MS's change password feature, but don't have enough info to active it. (again...I never wanted to create/use this account)

So is there:
1 - a way to change the master account associated with the pc, or
2 - a way to bypass this requirement
3 - any other options?

There's no option to log in as another user either

At this point I can;t even log onto the PC to do anything.

Thanks

Answer
you can bypass the email account

if you end up having to reinstall, you can bypass the email account as part of the login. Just click on create account then choose use existing account which is the local account

also since you said you created an outlook.com account and cannot remember the password, just go to outlook.com and click on "can't access your account?"
