And finally, I just want to have a normal, local logon account. No fancy, useless Microsoft Live account or whatever it is.

You can - when you're installing, select "Create new account" and then at the bottom of that screen is a tiny text link to create a local account with no Live tie in. This page covers it:

And this covers changing an existing account:

(Sorry - no clickable links for me!)
