Microsoft Shared Experience?

So call me selfish but I don't want to share anything with anybody and I don't like my left hand knowing what my right hand is doing either.

Enough humour but this new facility is driving me wacky because I have it turned off and just about every startup I get a message that there is something wrong with my Microsoft account and I have to put in my password which then leads me to the settings section and specifically to the Microsoft Shared Experience, where I select nothing and keep it turned off.

I realise it has something to do with me still having the audacity to be using Windows Live Mail as my email client, because I like it, heaven forbid a customer actually enjoying a piece of Microsoft Software because it works and is tidy versus all these new banner less bits of rubbish that are designed to work on tablets and phones.

Is there some way of turning this infernal merry go round off every time I start my computer telling me that there is something wrong with my Microsoft account.

Thanks in advance for any intelligent solutions.

How to fix : "We need to fix your Microsoft account..." message.  go to settings \ accounts \ email and app accounts \  and under "acounts used by ..."  remove any account listed there.  I removed the account that appeared after Creators Update and I have not had the irritating notification again.

Thanks for your interest however the issue does not happen every time I start Windows. I could easily start in safe mode get no result and that could be false. I am not going to work with my computer for a week in safe mode, we all know where that could lead.

Since posting on the forum and when I had a little spare time I used the built in help line chat. The person I chatted with advised, after some time of looking at options that are in windows and looking up information I assume in Faq documents available to them, that I need a Microsoft account from which to login to my computer in order for the message to stop coming up. So since V1603 this has been built in and no one wants us to login with a local password.

So be it, every now and again I need to dismiss the request.

I think it is an embarrassment for Microsoft myself, that this happens as often as it does, I am the kind of person that has no yield in my bones push and I push back harder.

Thanks but on reliable information from Microsoft I will be wasting my time and yours.

Hi

I am getting the same annoying alerts everyday, sometimes more.

I've never had a Microsoft account logon to this PC. I've only used my company domain account.

Why is Windows asking for my domain account password?!

Shared experiences are turned off BTW.

Do you have a Microsoft Account? Assuming yes, because it's taking you to it when you log in.

Thanks again for your response,

I mustn't be making my self clear to you but I have always had a local account on my computers (2) and never used a Microsoft account to access these computers.

My Windows Live Mail, is my original MSN account that actually dates back to the dim dark and forgotten ages of Windows XP pro and it's first blue screen and in no way have they ever shared a password or had a linked account.

Hence my question, what has changed, and why am I getting this message, that there is something wrong with my Microsoft account?

I hope that makes it clearer to you and thanks again in anticipation of your response.

Hi !

Maybe I did not explain properly...

- This is my main computer at home.

- The Shared Experience is turned OFF. 

- I do not use any other devices.

Windows regularly asks to enter my credentials because Shared Experience needs fixing !?!

Please, can you tell us how do I completely disable this feature ?

Thanks!

Hi Yvonne,

If you're using a Microsoft account, you can share files and applications on a maximum of 5 devices. However, if you're using a local account, you can share files but not applications.

Get back to us if you have other concern.

Windows telling me that they need to "fix" something for Shared Experiences !?!

Shared Experiences is OFF in Settings.

I think it definitely needs fixing... ;-)

I have the same issue. Shared Experience is turned off but I get prompted for credentials. Even stranger, I get prompted for credentials for another user. I only use O365, no Windows Live.
