Answers :

If you can reach the control panel on the account on their servers, use it to create a new account. Then log in to it, and delete the old one.
\015\012If you cannot open the control panel, or don't have the priviliges to create a new account, you're going to have to reinstall Windows on it.
\015\012However, do backup your data before you do that, because the whole partition you install Windows on will be formatted.
