To use the store, connect to the internet and try again.". When i tried to switch to microsoft account and login my account then it loads after that it show "The service isn't available right now - Try again later." I having this problem for more than two weeks until now. I tried a couple of time to refresh the windows - no luck same problem. Tried to restart and re-install windows - same problem.

1. During installation while configuring the user account it will as for a Microsoft account Login - Enter firstname.lastname@example.org and blabla in the respective fields - press enter. 2. It may ask for a Security Code to verify because the account doesn't exist or confirm it is yours. 3. You will be able to "see" Create Local Account. Just click on it and enjoy.
I have a new Samsung lap top nd set up the Microsoft account to an email address - it is the main one for my computer but wont accept the password, I have changed it several times and each time I try again I have the same problem - I can't get into things as its looking for the password which it wont accept! I have deleted the account hoping that would prompt something - but no - even more problems!! I do have another account that I have set up and have added as an additional user - how do I get this one onto the main one for my lap top? as I am no further forward except wishing I hadn't bought the lap top or windows *!
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.
i have recently bought a new laptop, windows 8. Its a Lenovo Ideapad Y50.
At first i had a password and a pincode, i was able to switch between the 2 login options at the login screen, i always used the pincode, as it was faster. I forgot the password. And somehow the option to choose between the 2, is now gone. To conclude, i am unablebto login to my laptop, as i dont know the password and it is not allowing me to login through my pincode. The account is not a microsoft account, so i cant just go to there website and change my password. Nor do i have a password reset disk. I have tried all the passwords i know and have no clue what to do next.
Apparently, Microsoft has established a new requirement for the 8.1 Preview where one must use a valid Microsoft account login (I could not find an easy way to establish just a local login). With that said, you can create an auto-login process, using your Microsoft account, so you can bypass the requirement to manually type a password. This bypass is only recommended for those who maintain their PC/Laptop in a secure environment:
Log On User Account Automatically at Windows 8 Startup
For the last 2 days, I can't get logged into my computer.
My computer (running windows 8.1) starts up fine, and I get to the screen where I select my user profile and enter my password. I only have 1 account set up on this machine, and it uses my Microsoft Account log-on information. I enter my password correctly, and it starts to "appear" as though I am getting logged in. I receive the "Welcome" and the dots go around in a circle as it is loading. After about 5 minutes, it goes no where and then the enter passwod pops back up. I can not get past this screen, It just keeps going around in circles. I have also tried using the PIN instead of password, same result. Sometimes I receive the message "the user profile service failed the sign-in".
So far I have tried resetting my Microsoft password, and have done that successfully. I can access my Hotmail and all that fine from other machines. I also took the computer and hardwired the internet to it, thinking it might be something with the wireless (although if it is wasn't seeing the internet I would think it would tell me that).
I seem to remember a few days ago the computer telling me it was updating when I shut down, so maybe that is causing something. I am stuck and don't know where to go from here.
I just bought a new laptop and the problem is, I cannot switch to a Microsoft account. It either gets stuck at the "preparing your account" window or would say that there are network problems. This has been happening since I bought this laptop, which is about a week now.
I'd like to logon to Window 8 without a MS account password. In other words, Can I sign in to Windows 8 straight and use Calendar or People? If I open a MS password, then I have to sign in with that password.'d like to logon and go straight to Start screen or Metro, if I'm correct.
I've got a very annoying problem with Windows 8.1 x64 . Ever since the 8.1 update Micorosoft has been pushing logging in via Microsoft Account rather than a local account. Though the Micrsosoft account provides some benefits (copy desktop, OneDrive etc) it also has some pitfalls
My problem is with the languange preferences / keyboard layout : I've got 3 systems which are US international keyboard and 1 system with an UK keyboard. All systems boot with US int. keyboard, when on the laptop i change to UK, all systems boot with UK. When then I change with both languages installed to US again, next reboot the laptop defaults to US.
Though I like synchronizing accounts, keyboard lay-out should be able to be opted out and be a local setting. I can't make it work properly with JUST UK on the laptop and US int on the other 3 systems.
When setting up Windows 8 64-bit Pro on the page titled "Sign in to your PC" I choose the sign into my Microsoft account as opposed to "Sign in without Microsoft Account". Big mistake. It created a username called dwmad_000 which is part of my email address used for that Microsoft account.
To amend this username to one of choice, I changed the name in my online Microsoft account and also from C.Panel created a local account. I now have both in Windows Explorer but the default one is always dwmad_000.
How to get rid of dwmad_000 or change it permanently to First Name Last Name and sycn the 2.
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 account.live.com 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.
I have 4 computer with none working keyboard after updates. This AM, I put an HP on line after being off line for several weeks (totally removed from home network).
Under BIOS control keyboard works. Enter password and Windows 8.0 takes over. Worked well until I ran update which had 88 updates. Upon restart , keyboard will not work. (Windows 8.0 was installed over Windows w/ all updates)

I've installed Windows 8.1 Home Premium on my parents laptop and I'm now trying to set up their email account.
It is a non MS account which Windows 8 doesn't seem to allow me to create. I've searched for a solution but they seem to require the Local Group policy to be edited and as far I've researched home premium doesn't include the management function to do so.
Does this mean if you are using Windows 8.1 Home Premium you are tied to using a MS mail account.
I recently updated two of my computers to Windows 8.1 and One thing that seems to be a public nuisance is having to use a Microsoft Account to have a syncing onedrive folder. This aside I have been trying to get File/Printer Sharing working between a file server and a client.
With my previous W7 setup I would create custom groups for access to certain file sets and it would all go off without a hitch, the same is true with Windows 8.1 and local accounts. The issue comes in when I try to link a MS account to said local account, at this point it seems to ignore the group permissions. Below is a diagram of the setup and the expected/actual results.
Code: = Windows 8.1 File Server =- Added localuser test1- Added user to administrators group- Link test1 to MSAccount- Verified user is still part of administrators group- Give Administrators Read-Write permission and Security on the relevant share and files= Windows 8.1 Client =- Added localuser test1- Added user to administrators group- Link test1 to MSAccount- Verified user is still part of administrators group
With this setup, if I try to write a file to the share in question, I get an access denied, but if I instead explicitly give test1 Read-Write access to the share then the user can write files as expected. If I unlink the MSAccount from the localaccount then the share works as expected with out the user-explicit permissions. Finally, after I have tested the localaccount is working, if I link the accounts back to the Microsoft Account it once again stops working. It seems like MS screwed the pooch on this one and completely broke it's own group policy permission compatibility.
Is there a way to reset a microsoft account?Several times I have formatted and reinstalled and each time when it asks whether I want to use the settings already assigned to my profile or not...and selecting No...it still seems to be bring things over like the wallpaper etc.
So to be clear, fresh install....during final stages, it asks to create a login or sign in using a microsoft account which is what I do. When I do this, it asks whether I want to use the settings already on the profile...I say no I want to set it up as a new PC and yet still wallpaper comes back (Sony vaio wallpaper)
I'm just thinking if the wallpaper comes back..what else does? So I want to know whether there is a way (apart from closing the account and recreating it) to reset the profile so nothing is attached to it.
My Win 8 installation, upon a power on startup or restart, booted to the Start screen without going through the process of logging in. I don't recall how I accomplished that. I just upgraded to 8.1 and it insists on logging into my MS account and requires I enter my account password.
