Windows 8 User Account/Microsoft Account Issues...

  1. #11


    Hello Folks,

    Following today's Win8.1 update, I finally succeeded to get rid of the error code: 0xd0000072

    Now, my local account has been changed to a Microsoft one and I can download applis from the Windows Store.

    Hope this will help others...

    If this thread is still open I'd like to know how to clear User Registry as well. I'm also having the same problem. Thank you.
