    Very slow boot when using MS-live account


    Greetings.
    I have done something to make my live account a really slow app for Windows 8. And I don't know what it is. If I log on Windows 8 with a local account it starts fast enough, but if I log on using my live-account, it is really really slow, and the only difference I can see is my backgroundpicture in desktopmode.

    How do I delete "whatever it is" that makes my boot so slow? Or do I have to make a new live-account?

    Is your internet speed kind of slow?
