How do I delete gmail accounts I don't want/need?

Q: How do I delete gmail accounts I don't want/need?

I know it sounds simple, but it's confusing the heck out of me, and I've checked a few simple "how-to's" that didn't work. Here's the problem: I have several gmail accounts I've created over the years......one I use daily, another once in awhile, another I wish to make my primary account, and some others. Here's what I need to do: 1) eliminate ALL but the 2 accounts I'm going to be using, and 2) easily switch between the two. I realize that #2 is a totally separate issue; let's just try to get the first one done for now.

What happens is, first I sign out of the regular account, but cannot get into any others. The one I previously created that I want to use as my primary, when I try to sign in, it says "no account exists." But when I try to create a new account using that name, it says "that one's already taken." If I try to retrieve a password, and go through that whole laborious process, it says "nothing here." The process just keeps going back and forth.....

So......how can I go in and get rid of all but the two accounts?

this is the key question
The one I previously created that I want to use as my primary, when I try to sign in, it says "no account exists."Click to expand...

can you log into that account

When you delete gmail account, it still exist and cannot be re-created , although it will not be available to anyone else
this sounds like the situation

Whenever I, or my husband, try to enter our gmail accounts we get the message
"Sorry, Google doesn't recognize that email"
 
I decided to make a new account and this worked for a while but now Gmail does not recognize this email address either even though I have sent and received messages using it.
 
My husband has his address attached to his Amazon account so its really affecting him.
 
Is anyone else having these problems? its driving us mad and there doesn't appear to be any answers from Google - some of them say "first sign into your account"!!!!!

A:Can't get into any of my Gmail Accounts

Nope. Just signed into my gmail. What page are you signing into? accounts.google.com ?  Did the account use a alternate email to sign in?

I have been using Gmail for a few months now. At first it seemed to work very well but over the last month I get repeated problems with Error No. 102. This can happen when opening a mail item, trying to delete a message, forwarding a message or even trying to get into the Sent Items file. (Almost anything I try to do !) I reckon it's happening 50% of the time. I've tried asuggestion of using the alternative URL https://mail.google.com/mail/s/ but no joy.Anybody else on Vista had problems? Any more of it and I may have to change.

A:Problems With Gmail Accounts

Hey there! Sorry to hear that you are having issues with GMail! I've also been using it for awhile now, and love it! My dad runs Vista and has been using GMail for over 8 months, and has never had a 102 error.. But, a friend of mine that is running Windows XP HAS gotten 102 errors... From what I understand, the 102 error in GMail is related to SMTP, not Vista.

Under Computer Management> Local Users and Groups> Users, if I delete all user accounts so that only Built-In Admin and Built-In Guest are left, what will happen when the computer is restarted if the both built-in Admin and Guests accounts are disabled?

Hello,
I have tried my absolute best to remove any trace of one of my WLM accounts, but I've had no luck.
It's an account that I no longer wish to use and have closed the account with Windows Live--I just wish it was as simple as that to remove my account on the computer.

Now, the first obvious thing was to: click 'Forget Me' in WLM, then I did a registry search for my address and deleted all results, then I did a search of my computer (including hidden files and folders) and deleted all those results but still, when I've signed back into the account it doesn't treat me as though I've never logged in this computer with the account.
Does anyone have any suggestions?

My gmail account got hacked. Offenders changed my pw, alternate email address, and deleted my contacts. They sent email out to all the contacts saying that I was stranded in the UK without money and asking for contacts to respond to arrange to send $2000.00. Offenders changed settings so that response email would be forwarded to their account. Friends who got these fraudulent emails called and alerted me and I contacted gmail and reset the alternate email address so they could send me a link to reset pw. Upon regaining access I discovered the extent of compromise.
I also rec'd email from facebook that my account with them has been breached. I still have not regained access to that.

A:gmail and facebook accounts hacked

Norton is mainly an antivirus product, maybe they include anti-spyware too now, not sure. There are many ways to steal access to your gmail. One of the ways is to install a keylogger on your pc, and steal username and passwords as you type them. But if you have accessed your gmail from another computer, like at university; public library, your friend's PC etc, then it may be that those computers are infected and not yours. Also, it may not be a technical attack. Simply being able to look over your shoulder as you enter the passwords will get you hacked just as easily. Then, there are whats called brute force attacks, where a program simply points to a login page, and tries each combination in sequence till it hits the right one. Gmail may not fall to brute force attacks, but if you use the same password on multiple sites, then there is a chance that they hacked that account first and tried to use the same password on gmail. Then there may have been phishing attempts made at your account and you mistakenly entered your password into a web site that only looks like Gmail. There should be more ways to steal your gmail, but I am not a hacker.

If you are running Trend Micro along with Norton, you might end up with them interferring with each other. You cannot run multiple real-time antivirus products together.

When you reset your Gmail, use a complex passphrase that is easy to remember. Eg. The phrase "Kirk is the rightful captain of the USS Enterprise" can be tr... Read more

Hello, does anyone know the best way to accomplish having two gmail accounts open SIMULTANEOUSLY, whether in Chrome (preferred) using a workaround or extension, or in Firefox?  (There are plenty of options out there to handle password management to switch between accounts with a click or two, but if you want to be in two at the same time, the only things I've been able to find for Chrome at least is to open two different windows one in Incognito the other in regular mode.)  It would be MUCH easier to have both email accounts open in respective tabs within the same window.

Hello,

I am using Outlook 2003 on Windows XP and I have the following problem.

Last week, I had a crash. I had to reload my (way-too-old) .pst backup. It contained e-mail accounts from an old ISP I don't use anymore. So I went in Tools/E-Mail Accounts to delete the old accounts and successfully add the new ISP's.

The problem is that whenever I check my mail, Outlook still tries to connect with my old ISP - even there is ABSOLUTELY no traces of it in the E-mail Account window??? So I must cancel the annoying Enter Network Password box everytime and then Outlook fetches my mail from my new ISP.

I even searched and deleted a few mention of the old ISP in my Registry but beyond that I am puzzled and would like to stop seeing those error boxes EVERY time I check for email!!!

Any help would be SOOOO appreciated!

When I send out a new computer to a customer, I install a "selection of useful programs" do all the windows updates and such.
So after doing all this on a new laptop computer I ran sysprep.  Decided to see what it was like, so started the computer up.  I got the whole "Preparing computer for first use thing" was asked for a username.  I entered it, the same one as before
and got, "User already exists" WTF?  So I try a different username, and then when windows loads it comes to the log in screen with 2 users!  The user I used to add all the programs, plus the user I created after sysprep.  How do I get sysprep
to delete the user I originally created when I first started the computer fresh out of the box?
To explain a different way.  What I do is take the computer out of the box, turn it on, let it do all of its install this, install that, create a user, lets call the user Tom (As required to go any further) then I uninstall some programs, add some, and
run sysprep.  However sysprep does not remove the Tom account.
I have read somewhere on here that sysprep does not remove user accounts, that it needs to be done manually.  So, dow do I delete the account I am currently using.  I need to use an account to delete an account.    Lil help please.

A:How do I get sysprep to delete all user accounts?

The answer is: Use Audit Mode
When you start your customizations don't go through the Windows Welcome wizard to create a user. Instead enter Audit Mode by typing Ctrl-Shift-F3 at the start of the wizard. The system will now reboot into Audit Mode and you are logged on as the built-in
Administrator. You can now make the changes to the system and run sysprep when you are finished. Using this procedure you will not create a new user each time you modify a system. You can also delete the users you created earlier from Audit Mode.Ray - Author of Windows 7 for XP Professionals

I have looked at various solutions for this, but none address my problem.

When I boot to Win10, it ALWAYS tells me the password is wrong and I have to type in my password. It doesn't give me the option to use my PIN. It also shows two accounts in the lower left, my MS account and my local account.

I want two things to happen: The first is, I should not have to choose one of two different accounts. They're both basically the same. Not only that, but looking in a variety of places including the Users section of the Control Panel (which is woefully anemic compared to Win 7) or Computer Management or via netplwiz. It only shows one account for me, not the obviously separate local and MS accounts it wants me to choose to login with. I've even changed my password to try to fix this to no avail.

The second is that I want to login without having to type in my password or PIN as I am the sole user of this computer and nobody has access to it, unless somebody breaks into my apartment just to use my computer, an unlikely scenario.

So there you have it.

A:I have two accounts on boot up, local and MS. I want to delete one.

I had this same thing happen after renaming my computer. I could find no way to get rid of the second account. It was not listed in accounts or in netplwiz. Very frustrating and obviously some kind of bug. Seems like I tried everything and no joy. I finally restored using an Acronis backup. It would be nice to find an answer to this. I'd like to rename my computers.

I want to delete my unnecessary account on Youtube. I have used Youtube channel without problems since 2005 and then Google came between and made a really huge mess. I didn't have problems with Youtube when it was standalone.

1. I use my picture as a profile picture in Gmail only. I do not want my picture to be seen elsewhere. For that purpose, I have already deleted my Google+ account which I do not approve of.

2. Although I deleted my Google+ account, next time I signed in to Youtube there were still two accounts. It is true that the one from the Google+ Name Surname got deleted, but a new [email protected] appeared.

3. Youtube asked me which account I prefer to use and I selected the old one username, which I created 10 years ago for Youtube. That one doesn't have a profile picture.

4. What I want to do. I want to have a special Youtube account as it used to be without any signs of Google and their pictures. I want a separated Gmail account with my picture in Gmail, if it's possible. Otherwise I'll be forced to use other e-mail provider. I do not want to be commanded by other big corporations, NSA and what else not. I want to decide freely what I'll do with my stuff online.

5. For better understanding, I have attached a picture. I took it on Youtube not on Google home page. Let's say the yellow square is my profile picture which I want to use in Gmail but do not want to see it at all on my Youtube channel. For Youtube, I want to use the first one, blue square wit...

Dear Friends,

I am trying to help a neighbour of mine who has Windows XP Home Edition. When a local company installed the computer they set up User Accounts for both the husband and wife, no one else lives in the house. The wife is the only person to use the computer the husband has never bothered to learn, the wife finds it quite frustrating in having to log on every time and would like to get rid of the User Accounts, so that when the P.C. is booted up it goes straight to the normal desktop.

I have looked at my copy of Windows XP for Dummies and it would appear that Start / Control Panel / User Accounts may be the way forward. However from there I am not sure what to do, if I select Change an Account and then delete both Users will that achieve the objective ? I should be pleased if some kind person could steer me through the necessary procedure.

Thank you,

Red Cloud

Hi,
I am an IT Desktop Support / field Technician. I have some users who bought PC's under our contract but need to have them removed from support so a 3rd party can administer them. This is Ok with our DEPT as long as they waive all software support. We use a standard image for our equipment. If the company wants to reformat the drive then that's OK.They will not be on our network. If , however they need Admin rights I have to remove 50 built in Admin accounts on each one. I know how to remove them individually, but am looking for a way to remove them in bulk. Is this possible?

Many thanks,

T

Having got all of my standard stuff, including having MS Outlook handle my email accounts, sorted out; I decided to give the new Windows 10 Mail Application a try.
Unfortunately I cannot get it to do a darned thing:-
1. With my Hotmail account I get error code 0x80070032. I've tried a couple of suggested "solutions" without success.
2. With my Gmail account I get "We didn't find anything to show here" or "Still working on it". Either way nothing shows up.

Maybe I should just stick with MS Outlook.

However, if anyone could help I'd be very grateful.

A:Cannot get Mail App to work with Gmail or Hotmail accounts

For your Hotmail account, change the setting for getting the emails to 'last 3 days' and see if it works. If it does, change it back to whatever interval selection you want.

Usually when Google or other account say those, it's also a syncing issue. Might want to try playing with those settings as well.

I have both outlook.com (same as Hotmail) and Google working in the new Windows 10 mail app and even on my Windows 10 phone preview build. So they can work if you find the problems with your settings.

Hi everyone.

I have 3 gmail accounts. I have setup auto forwarding for gmail accounts 1 & 2 (which seemed simple enough) to forward all emails to the 3rd gmail account. For some reason the emails arriving in account 1 & 2 are not being forwarded to account 3.

I have double and triple checked the forwarding setting and email address but it's just not happening. I've sent test emails to both of the accounts which are set to forward and they arrive... but just don't get forwarded.

I'm totally at a loss.

Please can anyone help?

Many thanks in advance.

Hi there
My main e-mail client is Outlook 2010 with IMAP (I've tried email clients but Outlook for me is still the best and most convenient for handling multiple e-mail accounts including work ones).

I'm thinking of upgrading to Office 2013 -- if I do this has anybody tested the GMAIL integration with Outlook 2013

Works fine with Outlook 2010 on W8 Enterprise edition X-64.

Cheers
jimbo

Exploits allowing hackers to break into Gmail accounts are likely to occur, if they're not already circulating, after security researchers released details of a hole that Google has reportedly declined to patch....Make sure you have a strong password Many PC users select weak passwords that consist of common names or dictionary words, leaving them susceptible to brute-force discovery and configure Gmail to use SSL by default:To benefit from encryption when accessing Gmail, you should configure the service to use SSL by default. To do so, click Settings in the top-right corner of the main Gmail window, select Always use https in the "Browser connection" section at the bottom of the General tab, and click Save Changes.http://windowssecrets.com/comp/090423/
