I wanted to jump in on this subject - I am having the same problem and have seen the problem in the official windows forums.


I had a PSU die on me - well it was starting to die and it took me a bit to figure out that was the issue - I did a series of system restores backwards in time to before I had linked my Microsoft account to my local user account.


All attempts at remedying this have failed. I have:


*Completely wiped the computer and done a fresh install using a Windows Disc image from Microsoft


*Restored other images and attempted to connect my local account to my microsoft account


*attempted to create a new microsoft account


*verified that necessary services are running within services.msc


Any help would be appreciated - I can state with certainty that many people are having this problem who are knowledgable enough about windows to understand the difference between local and microsoft accounts, the internet works fine, windows update works fine, it is just the connection of accounts...
