Trying to login to a microsoft account / switching after install.

Hi,

This is my first post. I have Windows 8 running on a Samsung Series 7 slate PC. I am Canada and was using @gmail.com as my windows live login account. Each time I try to login it says this service isn't available right now - please try again later.

I searched the forum, seems it's just me. I have tried creating a new account but can't get an image to show up to validate me. I tried creating a new hotmail.com account on another PC and get the same message. sometimes I get to the point where it says this address is already in use, if its' yours you can use it. But ultimately I get the same error.

My colleague who has the same unit in Toronto didn't have any problems.

I changed my live email account login to an @live.ca but same result. I switched my region settings to USA. I looked at the tutorial and forced cookies all on. Restarted and still nothing.

Anyone heard of this?
