    Is there more information about this? I'm having the same issue, and it's driving me nuts(OCD alert)!

    Windows 10 Pro x64 Version 1607 (OS Build 14393.693)

    Mail and Calendar 17.7812.42257.0

    Microsoft People 10.1.3410.0

    Store 11610.1001.25.0

    Login to Windows using a 'Local Account', not a 'Microsoft Account'.

    Two accounts from an unrelated provider. One for e-mail using IMAP+SMPT, another for calendar/contacts using CalDav+CardDav (iCloud). I censored the second account name due to bad languageDelete ISO files? :).

    And yet, when opening the Calendar. There is an entry for 'Microsoft Account Calendar', wich is unable to be managed.

    Things I've tried to fix this:

    - Removed and added accounts (Using both 'Calendar-->Manage Accounts' and 'Settings-->Accounts')

    - Removed and installed Mail/Calendar/People (Using PowerShell and Store)

    - Run Microsoft Troubleshooter for Windows Store

    - Run SFC /scannow

    - Run DISM /RestoreHealth

    - Switched to Microsoft Account, and back to local

    - A combination and multiplication of all the above!

    So far no fix is noticeable and the problem persist. Where does that 'Microsoft Account' entry comes from? And more important, how to remove it?!

    I would really appriciate if Microsoft gave some attention to this issue, and help us solve this.

    With kind regards,

    Delete ISO files?

    You could, but since it doesn't take very much room you might as well keep it.

    There are some people that actually collect ISO files. Right now I have approx. 45 different versions of Linux and Windows ISO files stored as a nice little collection.

    You could burn the iso to dvd so you have a backup.

    Delete ISO files?

    I thought I read somewhere that the ISO file needs to be used within 24 hours of downloading?

    No, they are good for years. I still use years old Windows and Linux ISOs just to create little computers on separate hard drives. Multibooting it is called. It is fun.

    When using Windows Tech Bench to download the ISO after you make your selection the links are only active for 24 hrs and after that you need to go through the selection process again.

    You can also download the Office ISO from MS servers using the Heidoc ISO Downloader.
    If your Office disc is the older pre SP1 disc, you might want to download the newer ISO that includes SP1.
    The ISO Downloader is available here:

    Delete ISO files?

    Ahh thats what I saw thanks *Smile
    I might as well download directly to CD then and then upgrade...does that make sense?
    Deblk, Jul 1, 2016

    Is is better to download the ISO to a CD then to upgrade and if so will I have to boot from the CD or can I just upgrade normally? Then after a while if I want to do a clean install can I use the same ISO? I am so nervous about this but seems silly not to take the free upgrade *Sad

    You need a DVD, not a CD because Windows 10 won't fit on a CD. Not sure if you just lump all the shiny discs together under a common name, but wouldn't want a CD to fail if you meant to be specific by saying CD. To do the upgrade from the ISO file it doesn't really matter if you make a DVD from it, or just mount it. If you are upgrading from Windows 7 then you will need software to do either. If you mount the ISO file you get a fake (virtual) DVD drive letter that appears. If you burn the DVD from the ISO file, then you run the upgrade from the DVD. Just make sure you burn the DVD on a slow speed (I would not go higher than 2X if you have a choice) and set the verify after burning option on the software. It will take longer, but you will know you have a good DVD.

    To do an upgrade, you run the setup.exe from within Windows 7/8/8.1 from inside the mounted ISO file or on the DVD. You do not boot from the DVD. That's why it doesn't matter if you burn the DVD first or not. To do the clean install, unless you do something really tricky, you need to boot from a Windows 10 installation DVD or USB flash drive created from the ISO file - so you have to have one made in order to do a clean install. If you make a working USB flash drive or a DVD from the ISO file, you don't need to keep the ISO file if you don't want to - the DVD will do both the upgrade and a clean install. It just depends on if you insert the DVD and run setup.exe while Windows 7/8/8.1 is running (upgrade) or whether you boot the computer from it (clean install).
