    installation ok till using updates,microsoft live account, and activat

    Have tried multiple installations of iso 64bit everything goes fine till the option to switch log on to microsoft live account... that does not work and the option of doing this through control panel also does not work. Also microsoft updates does not work and activation does not work. However the browser is fine and allows me to browse normally except for example when i log onto skydrive to view pictures it gives me a certificate error and will not display pictures. I think for what ever reason this is some kind of proxy error but since i am using a standard internet connection i am not sure why? Any Ideas

    Thanks to anybody that replies..........

    I'm a little confused. You said you weren't able to switch to a Microsoft account but you also said you logged on to your skydrive account?
