Old title: MS account issues
Hello I wonder if anyone has any ideas on a really annoying problem. We have a laptop and desktop in our family. Both win 10 and family accounts setup with myself as head of family/admin. The setup is identical for both our machines. On our desktop everything is fine. But the laptop has a real weird issue. Every 24 hours on all (verified) user accounts we have major issues using any MS account related stuff. Logging in is quick but if we go to Cortana interests show as unavailable, ms store is very slow to load, settings - family account will show red text and unavailable right now, using IE11 or edge to login to outlook.com can take ages just to look at email, films and tv app reports can't sign in etc. And it has this problem for all of us, as if this ms stuff does not think we are connected to the Internet - but we are and in this time we can use the various browsers and happily use internet just fine unless it relates to an ms login! It's real frustrating but if I leave the laptop alone anywhere from 10-30 minutes the problem will go away and all will be fine until another 24 hours pass and it happens again. It makes me wonder if some background reconciliation happens with MS every 24 hours and I am hitting real lousy server at MS. I am at a total loss as to why this is happening and as mentioned our desktop exhibits no such issue. Both machines have very similar software on them (if anything the desktop has more such as games etc).
the issue is worst for our son who has to wait a long time for IE or edge to become useable for any site. Presumably as family tracking is trying to kick in and the browsers cannot reach MS server easily. He has to use Mozilla which functions fine whilst he waits!
i have deleted the user accounts and recreated them several times but this issue persists so it shows the user accounts themselves are not corrupted
it seems to me the MS servers my laptop is locked into are just plain unreliable
