Please help. I have been looking in Google and online for hours and cannot find an answer.

My You Tube account is pretty much a mess since the forced Google+ social networking integration. I have tried many times to get rid of Google+ and failed, then somehow ended up with multiple Google + pages.

The real problem is that my mother visited me from out of state a while ago and used my computer to check her G Mail each day. Today I log into You Tube and somehow her YouTube and Google account got linked to MY YTube/Google account. When I click on the top right account avatar, I get a drop down menu with HER account showing up so I can simply click on it and switch between her YTube account and mine.

I have no idea how our accounts got linked, but I cannot remove her account from being linked to mine. My mother is older and she gives out her computer passwords to people despite me telling her 500 times to stop doing this. I can see that she has people logging into her account from other cities, etc, due to giving her info to co workers and family members. Now our accounts are linked and those people can access my YTube/Google account?

I am so fed up with all of this forced integration crap from Google and You Tube, that I am about to delete my Y Tube account and abandon Google forever because their websites and forced integration are so non-intuitive and hard to navigate. Trying to wander through all of the links and setting on their sites is confusing and mind boggling. The only thing stopping me from deleting everything is the fact that I have lots of videos and playlists I don't want to lose.

Can anyone PLEASE tell me how to delete all these linked accounts so I can get back to my plain old You Tube account? I really cannot have my mother's account linked to mine when she allows random people to access her accounts.
