ok so I fixed the first problem myself, before getting to desktop I kept getting asked for the gmail address linked to my Microsoft account , I stopped this by typing netplwiz into run box and followed prompts.
but I cant stop these , I get pop ups saying my calendar and outlook details are out of date , first I must say I don't even use them but even when I open them just for the hell of it , their is no prompt for what is out of date on either app.
more annoying is the box telling me their is a problem with my Microsoft account and it mentions it may be to do with a shared ( synced ? ) account.
if I open the promping box all it wants me to do is put in my gmail password , their is no indication of what else is required , I have the option to sync with other devices greyed out because I don't sync with anything else.
this particular box can come up at boot up or as much as 2 hours after.
