I called the support team and the solution soved by the following steps :

  1. login to the affected account
  2. Press Windows Key + L to lock the computer
  3. Switch to a user account with administrator priveledges
  4. open task manager & switch to the "Processes" tab (Press "More Details" if don't see a processes tab)
  5. find restoreoptin.exe & end task that process
  6. switch back to affected account (Start Page, click your account name/picture, click the account you want to switch to)
  7. Open Charm menu (windows key + C), select "Settings", then Change PC Settings
  8. Select Skydrive
  9. Modify the File Storage, Camera Roll, and Sync Settings (not sure which one does the trick)
  10. logout & log back in
  11. you should no longer be prompted with the blank 'please wait' screen

I also recently purchased an HP Laptop - top of the range - and i have a Blue Screen with "Please Wait..." showing and can't do anything!!!!   I can't reboot, shut-down and restart comes back to the same place, .... this is VERY VERY FRUSTRATING and my business is stuck without this.... not sure what to do at this point.  

 

VERY DISAPPOINTED with this.  

 

i am running Windows 8.1 on HP Envy 17".  I made no changes to my computer but when I logged out and switched to another user it just got hung in this state.  

 

PLEASE HELP URGENTLY!

Even am facing the same problem. The blue screen with a message "please wait" in start menu for ever, there is a cancel option but it doesn't work.

I have updated the OS from windows 8 to 8.1. This is a new laptop which is not even a month old. What is the issue with the same?

And I am unable to work on my laptop. This is really worse.
