Despite Windows 8 boasting less than 8% global market share, Microsoft seems to be speeding its demise up as the September monthly update left Windows 8.1 quite buggy, with users currently unable to sign into their Microsoft accounts.

Here’s what you need to know about the issue

Windows 8.1 doesn’t let you sign into your PC using your Microsoft account. When you try to do so, Windows 8.1 tells you that it cannot connect to Microsoft’s services at the moment. In case the problem persists, it advises you to search for “network problems” on the Start screen.

Microsoft acknowledged the problem and admitted that the September Update is to blame. The company said on Microsoft Answers that there’s a bug in the latest update and that support engineers are currently working on a fix to minimize the inconvenience for the users. Microsoft didn’t specify the exact time when it will release the fix, but promises it will be as soon as possible.

The problem was reported on September 13 and the fact that Microsoft hasn’t come up with a solution until now may indicate that the company has some priority issues because the OS is still supported until January 9, next year.

Everyone who is affected is definitely angry with the current situation seeing as restarting the system doesn’t work. There’s not much left to do but wait and hope that a fix will be on the way soon.
