Win 8 logs me into my son's Xbox Live account! How do I disconnect?

Somehow Microsoft has a link from my WIn 8 account to my son's Xbox live account, probably from back in the Messenger and Passport days.

I don't want my son to know I bought an expensive laptop just to play solitaire. 

How do I sever this link between the two email addresses?.

Hey there Macc! Sounds like you could use a second profile on your computer. Just set up a new user with the same email address you use to log into your Xbox profile. When you log into Windows 8, you'll be able to see your Xbox profile, your games, your movies, etc. Let us know if you need any help with that, thanks!

My reply seems to have gone missing.

This is the father, logging into my son's account.

I want to get rid of this link.

I log in with my own eMail address and it logs me into his eMail address.

I can't find where this link was was made.  I didn't do it.

I tried denying permission to access the account, but now it asks me every time I log on!

Technology!

Hey again! If using this email logs you into this account (your son's) then your account is most likely tied to a different email. If you still have your profile on an Xbox console you can look up the Microsoft Account (MSA) email in the Account Management menu. Once you find that, try logging in with that email address. Let us know how that goes, thanks!
