Just got presented with a screen saying I had to convert my existing account details to a Google account or a Gmail account etc.

Went through the motions and changed all my login details only to find my old details still apply.

Anyone else with the same problem?

I got the same thing as Martinbuster, I just wish the stupid thing would go away. All of my google stuff is connected to my gmail address so for now I have been skipping the wizard. It is still annoying that I can't just log in and be done with it. Strangly no other services are popping up with this for me.

I have no idea why they can't write a short script to take all Adsense accounts which aren't part of a Google Account and automatically create a Google Account with exactly the same login details as the Adsense Account.

I didn't read this full thread, but I have to tell.
Google asked about this change months ago. At that time, I did it and it worked.
It was first the Adwords account, later they informed me to change the Adsense account and I did it as well.
All worked fine... at that time.
