  • Hi Ed1Hr0,

     

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

     

    First, could you please let me know what your IE or FireFox displayed when you tried to connect Microsoft site?

    Can you open a Microsoft webpage?

     

    Here are my suggestions:

    ·         Please make sure your internet proxy settings are configured correctly.

    ·         Try disabling any antivirus/internet security software while you try to register.

    ·         Try resetting all the IE security settings to default (even if it's not your default browser).

    ·         Would you try this link: http://go.microsoft.com/?linkid=9709969

     

    If you have any other concerns, please feel free to let me know.

     

    Best Regards,

  • This is vb.net forum and your issue has nothing to with programming. What i can tell you is that if your System failed microsoft authentication, it wont let you download anything from its website. Re-installation might have changed the authenticity of your computer as valid copy of windows. There may be other reasons but try to post it in tech forum
