    ...and I wanted to know a few things. Is there a way to reset my Wii Friend Code? (I don't think so but I thought I'd ask anyways). If I can't, will the previous owners friends be able to see when i'm online and send me messages?

    Also, the previous owner never deleted his Wii Shop account. He did buy Mario Kart 64 so I jsut re-downloaded it after I formatted the memory lol. Now, is there a way to remove his account and make my own personal account instead of using his? If I do this can I still keep Mario Kart 64?

    Are friend codes linked to an email? I remember putting in my email at some point when I had a Wii in the past.

    Thanks peeps.

    Your friend code is based on your imprinted Wii serial number, so no, you can't change it.

    Yes, you can change it.

    You must format your Wii (you will find this option on system menu)

    No, is a new account, Mario Kart will be removed.
