Windows 7: Delete email account

Delete email account

I don't want to receive my email at Hot Mail any more. How can I delete this account, or better yet, just delete my entire Windows Live account?

Go to control panel In control you will see program and features In programs and featurs there is windows live essentials. Just delete and "poof" it gone. Be advised, if you installed any other WLE, like messenger they may be gone, too. Then you have to reinstall them. After any uninstall, defrag. Before you uninstall make a system image, in case things go wrong. We both know that they usually do.

Thanks, that took care of it. I really didn't want to wait 120 days for my account to automatically close.
