This Windows 8 is pure GARBAGE!!!!! Nothing but error problems. I'll address one thing at a time......

 

I am currently unable to add any user accounts. I get some stupid error message saying "Were sorry but something went wrong. This user wasn't added to this PC." Code: 0x80070426

If you installed any 3rd party networking stuff like firewalls, antivirus etc. - any 3rd party network services - and that 3rd party have not cared to certify (test) it with Windows 8. Then uninstall that software and try again!

I haven't installed any third party network services aside from Malwarebytes anti-malware. I just bought this laptop and it already comes with pre-installed McAfee antivirus.

Uninstalled McAfee and it still does the same thing.

Hi

 

Is your Windows is activated ?. 

 

If you are trying to create an online user account try an offline normal account first. You can later convert it to online if you want. Also make sure that your system date, time and region are correct.

Yeah it's activated. It came pre-installed on the laptop.

Hi

 

I didn't faced this error yet so honestly i can only guess . I did some search in internet and it seems that this error only happens when trying to create MS live account. Only solution so far is to create a normal user account and convert it to a live account.
