When I restart my computer I sometimes get a message that there is a problem with one of my accounts.   It is my old work account that is still active but I no longer work there.
When I enter my password to fix the account it opens.

How do I delete it from my computer?

I have already looked in "mail" and it is not a profile or account.

When I go to, I do not see a way to remove it.
