    Can't install Windows Store apps from day one

    I just bought W8 and am not allowed to download any apps from the store, it says I need to delete a PC, but I already deleted them all. In fact there is no PC listed, but it says I need to wait 3 days to add a new PC.

    This is kind of ridiculous. I think the problem is because I reformatted a few times with a virtual machine that was tied to my windows email. Is there a way around this?

    edit: In case anyone suggests, I tried refreshing, and also resetting.
