Accounts :: Unable To Sign Into Any Newly Created User Account

Oct 24, 2013

Updated to 8.1, created a couple of users accounts - but unable to sign into these accounts. Clicking to sign in, simply shows (a few seconds later) - 'Signing out'. No errors or similar reported and nothing obvious in the Event Log of the Admin user.

Have tried a variety of accounts - with passwords, without, child accounts, etc - same result.

Any accounts existing prior to 8.1 seem to work okay.

Safety Scanner and SFC check found no problems. A bit more testing found that if I create a new Administrator user, then this user can be logged onto and works fine. Whereas the Standard or Child accounts still won't logon. Accounts created using a pre-existing 2nd Administrator user (i.e. pre 8.1) show the same behaviour.

Logged on as Admin1 (my account).
Created W-user2 (child user) - unable to logon
Created test-user (std user) - unable to logon
Created test-21-1 (std user - created 21/10/13 after sfc check) - unable to logon
Created Admin3 (admin user) - Logon successful

Logged on as Admin2 (pre-existing 2nd Admin account)
Created standard2 (std user) - unable to logon
Created child2 (child user) - unable to logon
Created Admin4 (admin user) - Logon successful

So, it looks like only new Admin users can logon. A pre-existing Standard user account can still logon (as before).

Accounts :: Can No Longer Login To PC Using Windows Live Account

Mar 25, 2014

I am using Windows 8 on my laptop which uses my Windows Live account to login. Problem is it has suddenly stopped letting me log in and I'm locked out. The message I get is "You can't sign into your PC at the moment. Go to to fix the problem or try the last password you used on this PC". I hadn't changed anything which may have made it do this.

I have tried the following but nothing is working:

- Changed my password in my Live account
- Used a previous password
- Plugged my laptop into a network cable rather than using just Wifi
- Rolled my laptop to a previous time

I can't refresh as it needs the password but I can access the command prompt. I'm not knowledgeable on command prompts so not sure what I could do here which might resolve it. I also don't want to lose any files.

How To Sign Out Of Administrator Account

Dec 18, 2012

Win 8 Pro x64. I had to use my Administrator account today and then returned to my named Local/Admin one. Now, when I go to reboot, Windows gives a message that "Other people are logged on to this computer. Restarting Windows might cause them to lose data." What I don't find is a way to sign out of that Admin account. Is there, short of disabling it? Seems sort of a Catch-22.

Windows Store Not Allow Sign In From Local Account

Dec 22, 2012

I have Windows 8 installed on a local account and wish to sign in from my Microsoft Account but only as & when required not all of the time. Shawn's tutorial "How to Sign in with a Different Microsoft Account to the Store in Windows 8" covers the procedure which should apply.

Attempting this offers only the "Sign In" button however once clicked the spinning circle appears for a fleeting second before the pointer is returned to the button once more, further attempts loopback in the same manner.

I can only surmise that this is happening because I have undertaken a customised install using Kari's excellent tutorial "How to Relocate User Profiles to another Partition or Disk in Windows 8" where the User Profile concerned is "D:User" and not "C:UsersUser" this being my longstanding preference from previous Windows installs from XP to 7.

I have tried the mklink /j route to link both C:UsersUser and D:UsersUser with D:User but with no success.

Is there a registry key containing the profile path which is used by the store sign in which requires modifying to my customised path of D:User?? .....or is something else amiss??

Browsers/Mail :: Windows 8 Email And Microsoft Account Sign Up

Aug 1, 2013

I am getting a Windows 8 tablet and want to set up Gmail on the Windows 8 mail app. I don't have a Microsoft account.

Should I sign up for a MS account using a Hotmail address, or using my Gmail address? What is the advantage in using a Hotmail address in order to access my Gmail. What are the pros & cons?

I'd like to be able to view/send email but not download it onto my tablet, as I use Live Mail on my main PC and want all my downloaded email on that computer.

Maintenance :: Local User Sign-in Time Becomes Too Long (after Disconnect From MS Account)

Aug 10, 2014

Two days ago I received quite a strong new Win 8.1 computer (with SATA drive). I have opted for a LOCAL user only without a password.

The boot process was extremely fast: the computer turns-on to the blue log-in screen in few seconds; and then pressing Enter the signing-in process was almost immediate.

Then, a bad thing happened: I was lured by Microsoft to sign-in with a Microsoft account. Then, signing-in to my computer with this MS account (and password) took ages; I mean, something like a full one minute the computer was trying to sign-in until eventually succeeding.

Understanding my mistake (why would I want an MS account?) I decided to disconnect from my Microsoft account, and return back to my nice local user.

But now, the long waiting time to signing-in (even without a password, and with an automatic log-in) still remains: I wait like 25 sec when the blue screen and the white dot circulate repeatedly until my account is signed-in.

Win 8.1 .... Switch to a Microsoft account on this PC. The password you entered is incorrect. Try again.

Can make the password visible, it is correct. Running no version of webroot. Restore the computer to a time when the password worked, it never has even though it is correct for signing into my account on the micro website. Changed my password and still no success.

Accounts :: Windows 8 PC - User Profile Service Failed Sign In

Apr 28, 2013

The User Profile Service service failed the sign-in. User profile cannot be loaded. (Window 8)

Today when I tried to use my laptop, I got an error when attempting to log on with my profile. It states:

"The User Profile Service service failed the sign-in. User profile cannot be loaded."

I am using a different PC right now, of course. I had Googled the error, but none of the solutions (thus far) will work in my predicament. It is a Windows 8 PC, so I cannot access the system BIOS in order to perform a system restore, cause unfortunately, it goes straight to the log on screen(Which is become SOLID BLANK COLOR). I don't have a second profile on the system, either. I can't find any way to access the BIOS, Settings, Admin. Profile, or anything.

(SOLID BLANK COLOR) the back ground image for the log in screen is a solid color and not an actual image, anymore.

I can't access the start menu to open the CMD, because I cannot log into my profile and there is no other profile on the PC, besides Administrator ... Which is, unfortunately, hidden. I cannot make it visible, because I'd have to log in to accomplish such a task ...

The problem is not that I am incompetent and cannot conjure a new profile or complete simple tasks on a computer. My predicament seems to be that I cannot access anything. I need to log onto my profile in order to reach the CMD, or any other settings for that matter. Unless there's some, very well hidden, way to run CMD from the log in screen. I know that there is a minuscule detail that I am overlooking, but I cannot find it.

If there's any way to access CMD, BIOS, or anything at the log in screen.

When I opened mu laptop (I'm using ASUS) = Its going STRAIGHT to the BLANK SOLID Screen and There's that. Nothing.... I cannot find anyway how to log in using safe mode and try anyway boot using f1 or anything....

IMPORTANT Problem: didnt's have a cd Windows 8, just found out this problem, didnt even made another account... and other PC is using win7...

Store Cannot Login To Live Account After 8.1 Upgrade

Nov 12, 2013

I have a long standing Live account, and my computer has been set as a trusted device. when I upgraded to Windows 8 I was thrilled to be able to purchase apps for my computer and have many photo apps and art apps. I upgraded to 8.1 and now I can not log in to the store at all. I go through the process and at the last stop I get a screen telling me that there is another account on this PC using that account. I know this, it is me, on my account! I need to purchase something and i can not. I am afraid to even try and run something because I do not want to get locked out of my already purchased apps.

Accounts :: Unable To Connect Microsoft Account To Domain Account

Jun 25, 2014

I am a system administrator in a large enterprise environment and we are doing a rollout of Windows 8.1. In our image capture we somehow captured a setting that is disabling users from setting up a connected account with their domain account. I am relatively sure that it is in my unattend and I can fix it for machines going forward but I really don't want to have to reimage the machines I've already deployed.

When I go to connect an account, the "connect to a Microsoft account" option is grayed out and the "some settings are managed by your administrator" message is displayed at the top. This is NOT a group policy object that is applying. The machines are in a test OU and there is absolutely no policy applied. I have searched all through local policy and even did a search through the registry for "account" (that took forever) but have been unable to find any registry key or local policy that would be causing this issue.

What setting might be causing this? I have 30+ machines already out in the environment and the user experience is going to be terrible if I have to reimage them all.

Accounts :: Auto Sign-in Doesn't Work If Remote Connection Enabled

Nov 13, 2013

I would like for my computer to sign in automatically with my Microsoft account, however, when I enabled Remote Desktop Connection (for I would also like to be accessed remotely), the automatically sign-in function doesn't work, because sign-in screen is now set by default to log in with local account rather than Microsoft one. However, I do not possess one, and if I tried to create on and make it sign in automatically, the screen said wrong username or password. Which I don't understand at all.

Accounts :: How To Remove Live ID From Windows 8 Store

Nov 26, 2013

When I first started this job I was the first user on a new PC with Windows 8. I was asked to set up a Skype account which I did by creating a new Windows Live e-mail since I didn't want to use my personal one for business. I had continual problems with some conflict (I never found but believe it was caused by Skydrive) that caused my Live account to continuously need a password reset. After much frustration I set up a Skype direct account and closed the Live account.

Today I tried to go into the Windows Store to download an app and it's still asking me to log-in with the old, closed Live account. I have literally been sitting here for an hour and a half trying to find a way to log-in to the store with a different user and e-mail. There is nothing. I tried Microsoft live chat support which was really no support at all. I printed out and tried the instructions I found on this site for signing in with a different Microsoft account but it doesn't work as nowhere am I given the option on the screen to sign in with a different account. It shows my Live account with no option to change to another and a password box with the message that too many attempts were made to log-in blah blah blah reset the password. But, the account is closed so this is impossible to do (yes, I even tried that method but it tells me my account is closed).

Microsoft's instructions to do this by managing user accounts does not work as there is no user account on this PC associated with that e-mail address. I log in daily with a local administrator account and the only other account is Guest. I log in to Skype with a Skype (not Live) account. I log into Outlook e-mail with a business/local e-mail account. The Skydrive account is also no longer used as we switched to Dropbox.

I tried doing the instructions to clear the Windows Store cache (run>wsreset.exe) but that did nothing to remove this account.

Any information about how to remove an e-mail account associated with the store, that is no longer a valid/open e-mail account.

May 11, 2013

How to correct user accounts in windows 8 Pro on new HP Pavilion g7 2246nr, I set notebook up using Microsoft account then called Microsoft when problems started, and we decided to switched to a local account. They created a new user account, then copied all my files to it. But I ended up with i administrator account that could not be deleted. That worked but my files are broken up between 3 other user accounts. I spoke with Microsoft to try and consolidate the accounts and they used a command line in cmd, run as an administrator, but it did not finish, or I may have cut it off by accident.

I am still working with the system but it has problems. I have reloaded the software 3 times so for. How to correct the problem without reloading all the software again? Also after setting up sharepoint in Office Pro Plus, it created another administrator account in UAC. I did not think this was going to happen? Right now in the UAC I have two administrator accounts with the sane name, In c:users there 5 with the temp file they created. What that command line they attempted to use was to correct and consolidate the user accounts.

8.1 - Windows Live Account Password Automatically Memorized When Making Purchase At Store

Aug 9, 2014

Platform: WIN 8.1 Spring Update

Using a local (domain) account to login to Windows

Using a MS Live account just for the purpose of installing Store apps

The first time you go to install a store app you are prompted for your Live account credentials. Once entered, the only choice is SAVE or CANCEL. Once SAVE is chosen Windows remembers the password and the user is not prompted next time they go to install a store app. I want the user to be prompted every time. It seems earlier version of WIN8 allowed this. Can it still be done? I looked for a registry hack to prevent the Live password from being memorized but could find none.
