I deleted the account with my email address to sign in to Microsoft Hotmail etc. accidentally, so I made a new account with a hotmail email address and password but when I go to sign in it shows the old email address and is asking for the password for the new one and it wont sign in. How can you change the email address it is showing. Microsoft help says you cannot.

Have a look here, LINK. Under Enable the account if you can't log in anymore, the link for burning the iso file for Offline NT Password & Registry Editor is here. if you can't link to it in the first link.

Is the account you accidentally deleted a W8 user account or a Microsoft hotmail email address account?
