Unable to create another account on my windows 8 desktop


I have a Microsoft account, I would like to create another account for my wife to use on the same desktop.

Repeatedly get the error message 0x80070426 after a really long time of entering her email address.

Have tried the Troubleshooter - no success.

1. Are you creating a Microsoft account or a local account?

2. Which troubleshooter did you run?

3. What is the complete error message?

Please install all the Windows update and check. Refer “Do I need to check for updates? “in the link below.
