    Microsoft Account login problems

    I recently had to re-install Windows, since for some reason a boot component got corrupted, because my battery died (my pc was in sleep mode), i tried to boot it up, not knowing the battery was dead, and nothing i did fixed it.
    I went through the setup, no problem. I login to my account (Using my Microsoft account), notice that the username is not the same as it was before, I create a new account with the right username, deleted the other account, logged in using my microsoft account and migrate my old user files from the Windows.Old folder (including AppData), now it won't sync my settings, I can't add my GMail account, I can't receive emails from my Outlook account (Microsoft acount), so i try to remove it and add it back. No luck I get Error 0x8007002 and 0x8007520 after doing some troubleshooting (Windows Store troubleshooter)

    Hi Arbaaz,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community.

    In order to help you better, could you please confirm a couple of things:

    • Are you able to login with Microsoft account in web?
    • What happens exactly when you try to login using Microsoft account?
    I suggest you to login to Microsoft account through online, if you are able to login to Microsoft account on web then you can reset the password and then try to login and check if the issue persists.

    Hope this information was helpful and do let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to assist.

    Help Removing Microsoft Account login

    I am not sure if you want to switch to a local account instead of your Microsoft account, or if you want to keep your Microsoft account but login automatically instead of having to type the password.
