    Password required and “We are unable to complete your request.” but no known app


    Using Windows 10 OK for many years: For the last several days, a window has frequently popped up on my screen saying “Password required for *** Email address is removed for privacy *** and “We are unable to complete your request.” The source is identified as Microsoft / account. It appears as often as every few minutes. The window can appear when I am not doing anything - just viewing my Desktop - or when I am in an app. I clear the window by clicking on the “X” and get a dialog box labeled “Account Set up.” The box asks if I want to cancel the authentication process (And I say Yes to exit.)

    I can sign into my Microsoft account, and I do not see anything unusual. I changed my Microsoft password.

    Can I find out WHAT my PC is trying to sign me into? How do I stop this notification?

    :)

    Windows Updated(16299.309).KB4088776 Restart is required to complete.


    Hi dalchina. Good news, I followed your suggestion and reinstalled the update and now it appears as "installed correctly" *Biggrin Maybe it was not necessary to run the Windows Update Troubleshooter or maybe if necessary. But using it I do not think it could have worsened something. The installation was very fast, unlike the first time it showed step 1 and step 2 completed.

    Thanks for the suggestions and for the time to respond Password required and “We are unable to complete your request.” but no known app :) Best regards.


    And thanks for the tip of that program, I'll have it on my list.
