  1. Microsoft Account


    I created a Microsoft Account when I installed Office 2013. I want to cancel the account. Microsoft online warns that all sorts of services which I don't use no longer will function if I cancel. Will canceling the Microsoft account disable Office 2013?

    Step 3:
    It could also happen because of network issue. I suggest you to try with different network connection and check if it helps.
