    Cannot switch to a Microsoft account on Windows 8


    Hi!

    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.

    Please help as I am really excited to try out the apps available.

    Thanks!
