    800736b7 error activating insider preview builds


    Greetings for a new year to everyone.I am trying to tun on get Insider builds which I turned off some days ago and I am greeted with error 800736b7 which oddly has no mention on the internet.
    Have tried troubleshooter, SFC also came out without any errors.Telemetry is also set to full.
    Suggestions anyone?

    Check your time is correct and check your MS account is validated.

    After that I normally give up and restore to an earlier backup. It happens fairly often to me and I've not found a better solution.

    Seems like I have to delete this account and create a new one.The settings you mentioned are correct.

    You shouldn't need to. Playing with telemetry will block you getting a upgrade (I never do - that is the point of being an insider), so will the timezone. So will installing you Windows on another machine (you have to verify it again).

    Just clean install, verify and upgrade.
