    I cannot login to the Microsoft Store


    I just upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 7 and I decided to add an app. I clicked on the store app and then picked the app I wanted and then clicked on Free. A menu came up that said choose account so I clicked on Microsoft Account and a screen popped up for about one second and then was gone. I then went up to the upper right hand of the screen and clicked on the icon to the left of the search window and clicked on Sign In, then I clicked on Microsoft Account and the same thing happened again, a screen popped up and then in a second it was gone. Does anyone have any idea what is causing this?
    Below is the screen I see for a few seconds before it goes away.
    Also, when I go into Setting/Account and click on "Sign in with a Microsoft account instead" the same thing happens.

    I think I am the only person using Windows 10 that has this problem. The people I have talked to at Microsoft have not idea why this is happening. As it is now the apps portion of Windows 10 is useless for me, I might as well go back to Windows 7.

    Thank you for your reply and your suggestion, unfortunately it did not work.
    When I click on the pop up that says Choose Microsoft Account I get a pop up that is a blank screen and it goes away after a second. There is no place for me to enter my Microsoft account. See screenshot in first post.

    And have you check your settings in the note:
    Note: Make sure that you have the correct time zone, date, and time set to avoid the Store having syncing issues.

    Try copy & pasting the following into an admin command prompt:

    net stop bits
    net stop wuause
    net stop appidsvc
    net stop cryptsvc
    Ren %systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution
    SoftwareDistribution.bak
    Ren %systemroot%\system32\catroot2 catroot2.bak
    net start bits
    net start wuauserv
    net start appidsvc
    net start cryptsvc
    pause

    Thank your for this suggestion, but I am sorry to say it did not work. I wonder if there is a program in my startup that could be causing this.?
