    "Service is currently not available."


    Since a week all my msn apps (news, financial, weather, sports etc.) just show "Service is currently not available.". Interestingly, the live tiles still work. I've tried the following:
    • Reinstall the apps
    • Reset Windows Store (run wsreset.exe as admin)
    • Run sfc /scannow
    • Run chkdsk
    • Re-register apps: Apps - Reinstall and Re-register in Windows 8 and 10 - Windows 10 Forums
    • Run Windows Troubleshooter, but it only says that I have to activate the UAC. After I do this, the Windows Troubleshooter says that the problem can't be identified. Of course I ran the Troubleshooter as admin.
    • deactivate Windows Defender and Windows Firewall (I have no other antivirus programs like Antivir, avast, AVG, Kaspersky, Norton etc. on my PC)
    • check the host-file to entries; host-file is clean
    • change the region/language ("choose edition") In the msn apps' options
    • complete reboot (start "Run...", type in shutdown -g -t 0 and click OK)
    • convert my windows account to local and also create a new account


    I also noticed, when I want to visit the Microsoft homepage in my primary browser (Opera) I will be redirected to this webpage: Sign in to your Microsoft account which says the following:
    Something went wrong and we can't sign you in right now. Please try again later.
    This only happens in Opera, so I set Edge to default browser, but the behavior didn't changed (Microsoft homepage is still not visitable in Opera and the msn apps still don't work).
    My last restore point is from friday.

    I really want to avoid a reinstall of Windows.

    Thanks in advance! :)

    Welcome aboard, FMajor.

    There are enough possible causes that we can't be sure which solution will work.

    Try using Edge as your browser. Delete all other browsers (If you re-install them, they should still have your bookmarks).

    Can you use a System Restore Point that you set before the problems began?

    Do you have any software that includes its own security program? That sometimes fouls up Win 10.

    Turn off your rig and unplug it. Hold the Power Button down for one minute, and then restart.

    If none of these work, come back and we'll try again.

    Sounds like you have to do a repair install, this will not remove any personal files or apps, it will repair all the windows files. Here is the link .....with even a video to help explain it to you.

    Same here. Quite annoying.

    Okay, so at least I'm not the only one with that problem. Unfortunately Microsoft give's a damn about the bugs in W10.

    Hello, it might be interesting if you clicked 'View detailed information'.

    Bearing in mind
    I also noticed, when I want to visit the Microsoft homepage in my primary browser (Opera) I will be redirected to this webpage: Sign in to your Microsoft account which says the following: Something went wrong and we can't sign you in right now. Please try again later.

    you could try running Tweaking.com's repair tool (free), and with due caution, run repair 32 only.

    The list of items here may be of interest, and a couple of interesting comments:
