    Microsoft account acting weird in apps

    Hello! I've been trying to login to my MS account in the Store App, however, when I log in it says "We encountered an error, please try again later", and no matter how many times I try, it never works. This is the same for Xbox Companion and every other app that needs my account games, etc.

    Here's what I've tried so far:
    I've tried un and reinstalling the store, resetting, clearing cache.

    I've logged in on on the website, it works there.
    I've checked my number of allowed devices on my account, I'm only at 3 out of 10.
    I've changed my IP address, just to really make sure.

    I've activated the hidden Windows Administrator profile, and it works there.

    I've checked the system time, it's all on automatic
    And I've set my profile to use my account instead of a local account, and vise versa.

    Now the weirdest part is, even though I can sign in online, if I use a completely different account in the apps it works. My main account won't sign in to apps but it will online, but my redundant account will sign in everywhere.
    Another thing is my laptop which also runs Windows 10 can sign into the apps on my account, so the problem is in my PC.

    Summed up, my main MS account is "banned?" on my PC's main profile, so I'm thinking it's something in my %appdata% folder. It works fine everywhere else. And I've tried every method I know to reset things except reinstall Windows entirely because that would mean backing up literal tons of data.

    One last note is I've recently renamed my account + removed myself from family features tired of emails

    If any of y'all can help me out I'd really really appreciate it. Thanks for reading this far, and have a good day! -LillianAZ

    App store and Microsoft account

    Thank you for the advice

    I see what you mean about the password but i think its a backward step to compromise my Microsoft password to to use the app store
