    Microsoft Account warning

    This started popping up the past few days when I start my laptop. I have no idea what is going on. I know it started after a Windows update but don't know if one has anything to do with the other.

    Can someone help me with what this is about and what I should do about it please?Click image for larger version.

    Here is a thread for the Ten Forums which speaks specifically to your error.

    repeating notification "you need to fix your microsoft account"

    This error is also talked to in several Microsoft threads. On page 4 of this thread a "Microsoft Account Trouble" shooter in conjunction with some settings changes fixed the problem for one individual. You may wish to search this tool within Microsoft Support site to identify its use and expected situations it fixes. One simple fix was to log in with your password rather than you Pin.

    You need to fix your Microsoft Account for apps on your other devices - Microsoft Community

    Hopefully one of these solutions will work for you. Prior to performing please ensure you create a restore point. It would also be a good idea before any trouble shooting to have an Image of your existing system. A number of forum members use Macrium Reflect.
