And you are sure he is on win7? We are not by chance talking about win8.x or win10 where we have a OneNote app built-in?

The error message supports my assumption: this is not windows 7 (right??) but instead windows 8.x or 10 and you are dealing with a microsoft account that got setup in order to use an app (One Note App).

Ok, and is it ten or eight?
For eight: Charm Bar > Change PC Settings > Accounts > Disconnect Microsoft Account
For 10: open settings, click on "Accounts", then on “Sign in with a local account instead”

Ok, did you do as suggested, then?
->as that user, open settings, click on "Accounts", then on “Sign in with a local account instead”
This will remove that e-mail-sign-in option and return to what it was before.

oNEnOTE WORKS WITH THE MICROSOFT ACCOUNT SO HE HAS CHANGED THE mICROSOFT PASSWORD TO MATCH HIS FORMER LOCAL PASSWORD (oops, Caps Lock ;-).
That's only normal and expected and if he feels alright with this situation, why not. if he wants to return to his former status, he'd need to follow my advice.
