    Upgrading to Windows 10 from Windows 7 or 8/8.1 do not always go well. A clean install usually gives the best results, but thought that a repair install may help to avoid that.

    I made a clean install, because I bought a new SSD. Maybe I'm just unlucky.

    Did you make any changes to the computer name, or to your account's email address or password before this happened?

    If my memory helps me, all started when Microsoft Customer Camer asked me to make a Log Out and Log In to resolve some problems with Xbox Controller Drivers.
    Never happened before that.

    That shouldn't have affected this unless they or they had you make changes to anything that would affect your credentials.

    I'm afraid that I'm not sure what else to suggest other than a clean install to start fresh for the best results.

    Click here to enter your most recent credential - Fix in Windows 10


    Hey Siegfriedm, the only way I've been able to 'resolve' this issue is by creating a local admin account, not connected to MS account. Then, when I want to install an app from that account, I go to the store and log into that MS account. I perform the install. Then I make sure the store is disconnected from that MS account again.

    **Make sure the stores disconnect from any MS account when not using the store. I have found using this method that I can also install apps from different MS accounts...Interesting Fix Click here to enter your most recent credential in Windows 10

    I never have been asked for my Windows Credentials again...Ahhhh...Its a beautiful sight to behold Fix Click here to enter your most recent credential in Windows 10

    Hi, came here via searching for the same thing (Great help site BTW), and after reading through this thread there is 1 possible that I don't think has been considered, not because I understand this stuff per say, but from looking for possible causes myself, or more accurately trying to remember what happens just before it happens, but with the memory span of a goldfish is not as easy as it should be lol, but I have a strong feeling that having more than 1 email address, signing into those (even if it's just other m$ ones) if that could be a factor maybe ?

    I have multiple emails for use with specific things, with the furthest one used as disposable, for use in high(er) risk area's (eg newsletters or 1 off uses) and the like, and as best as my memory can handle I feel like I am seeing a pattern in this, it's not instant, but I am suspecting this may be happening at some point after signing into my disposable account, as I check that one online, the rest is done via MailWasher on my PC, just thought it worth a mention incase it helps you to see if it could be a factor or not, hope it helps.

    Hello Alan and welcome to the forums. I really wouldn't think email addresses have much to do with it. I have several and no problems. That is unless one of the email addresses downloaded something it shouldn't have.
