Disable Windows Live ID SSO for IE 11

With release of Windows 8/8.1, Windows account, previously called live ID, is required to setup the OS.

When you open IE and access some Microsoft owned/integrated websites, like live.com, your pre-entered windows account will be used by IE automatically. However there are times you just need to use other account to login. Here below is a work around:

There are cookies saved in the registry under
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\AuthCookies\Live. 

Just delete the Live subkey and change the permissions so that your daily account does not have permission to create new subkey.
