How can I get rid of the - Trust This PC - message?

I purchased a new laptop running Windows 8. I have followed the instructions to Trust This PC but the flag still prompts the same message.

HTG Explains: Why Does Windows 8 Want Me To “Trust This PC”?

"One of the first messages you’ll see after logging into Windows 8 for the first time (aside from a message about activating Windows) is a request to “Trust this PC.” But why does Microsoft want you to “trust” your PC?

A trusted PC is a Microsoft account security feature. Only trusted PCs are allowed to synchronize passwords. You can also more easily reset your password from a trusted PC, should you ever forget it.

You should only trust private PCs, not public PCs that other people have access to. If you share a PC with other people, anyone with access can reset your Microsoft account password from that PC."

 I haven’t ran into this myself, but there have been discussions about this issue over on the Microsoft Community forums. This may point you in the right direction: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_8-windows_insta...
