Why does Windows 8 constantly disconnect my account and asks for verification?

    I set auto-logon/login properly, using my MS account username (e-mail) and password. It works great, but when I go to check on my account in Metro panel, using the lower-right corner charms bar, selecting "Settings -> Change PC Settings -> Accounts" I see "Verify" option available.

    The same applies to MS Office. I log into my account to use it, but after a restart, it shows exclamation sign or question mark that tells me to reconnect to MS account.

    I do set Windows Update service to Manual. I am not sure if that is the cause of this "disconnect" from my MS account.

    did you follow the link to MS website to verify your account. Most of the time it happens with a new install or on a different device its been installed with. Following the link should take you to your live account at MS with a browser to verify your system with your account.

    Yes, of course. I have done that many times. However, a few reboots later, and it asks me to re-verify again! Why? It pretty much disconnects me from my MS account every so often and I have to manually connect to it. How can I make sure that connection stays there @ all times?
