Windows 10: repeating notification "you need to fix your microsoft account"
Glad to hear you have it sorted. If you have any more problems with your MS account in the future, just start a new thread. We can consider this issue closed.
I am having this same error message but on my 950xl running anniversary update (non-insider).
what to do?
Please take a look at this post. It has fixed the problem for me.
repeating notification - Page 2 - Windows 10 Forums
It has absolutely nothing to do with your account. It has to do with Cortana and MS no being able to access all your contacts, camera, microphone, location, and advertising ID. If you turn any of these 'OFF' for a single app, or off completely, you will notified that your account needs to be fixed. When you click on the notification you will be asked for your PIN or password, after that it will reset all those privacy settings back to their default state, ALL OF THEM WILL BE ON.
Follow the instructions in the notification. Reboot. The notifications will be gone. To get the notifications back you only need to turn off a single privacy option. Go to Settings/Privacy click on any of those categories and turn off ONE single setting, and the 'Fix your MS account notifications' will return after your next reboot.

MS have forced out an update without regard for the variety of users. Many have no issues with their account, but MS don't care about this.
They have obviously sent out updates without thorough testing, and caused their users a lot of grief.
How about changing the message to include a "don't show this message again" check-box?
