Can anyone help me?

My friend logged onto my laptop to check their email. Since then, whenever
I turn on my laptop and get to the welcome screen I get a message saying that
I have an unread message under my user account name. When I clicked on the
writing that says you have an unread message I see that the email address it
points to is my mates email and not mine! The "link" that I would have
thought would take me to his email is also dead so I seem to have no way of
clearing this message.

How can I clean up my computer from carrying around my mates email hotmail
account profile? It is wierd as when I told him I get this message he
immediately cleared out his email and I found that the message still does not
dissapear! It looks like something has corrupted my user account and I am
destined to see this message evertime the welcolme screen is displayed!

Can anyone explain simply how I can delete the corruption?

Thanks
Chris

Control Panel> User Accounts: Select your user account. In the common tasks
pane, select Manage network passwords. Select the entry for your friend's
hotmail account and delete it.
