I cannot attach Microsoft account in Windows 8.

After I enter my email address, it just keeps waiting. No error message at any point.

Once I just tried for signing up for a new email address from options provided when signing in, this too just kept loading.

I have a fast enough internet connection (3.6 Mbps). Actual downloading speed is 350-400 KBps.

Any other information / experiments? Can you create another user with a local account? Does that account logon? Are you in a domain (probably not). – Guy Thomas Jan 8 '13 at 18:42
