OK, I admit having messed up my work laptop - I have done so many hacks to try to fix the 'Outlook password nagging' issue that I almost stopped it booting! Our internal IT is outsourced and shite though, hence my trying to fix it myself.

I trust you folks alot more.

Right now we're getting there slowly, but the main issue I have is 'activating' my office apps following a complete uninstall (including teams and onedrive) followed by a re-install from the office.com site (where I can actually use outlook etc).
The error I am getting is akin to 'there is another user of this id on your pc', but there isn't! I have read some stuff about credentials manager and stuff, but having already fucked it up and recovered a bit to this point I would rather ask for your help, my friends!

If you need more info please do ask, and if you can provide any help I would be very grateful.... I might even dish out a custom title!! (yes, that's tantamount to bribery!!)

Check office 365 settings (website). Go to manage installations you should see a list of devices. Deactivate the machine you're having issues with.

Then re-sign in and activate via the app.

Might work.

@Jupitus have you gone to settings, accounts and checked you are signed into a work or school profile there? If you aren't then that should fix it.

Yikes, TCS... we use them aswell, and they're worthless.
