Visual Studio "You are not authorized to access {username}" error

 I have gotten this error once before and ended up having to call Microsoft support and have someone walk me through the steps to fix this. We went through multiple things to fix it and I didn't write them down. Now when I try to sign into Visual Studio I get this error:  I then tried to sign in with my GitHub account and got a bunch of Error Script popups. Did some googling and found the solution to my problem here . Thanks to BigOine I went to Tools -> Options -> Accounts and changed "Add and reauthenticate accounts using:" to "System web browser" and I was able to login with my regular account and the {username} error went away.
