Odd UAC Error

Recently on my Windows 8 machine I have been getting a very strange error.

The machine requests a User Account Control promotion for Networks and lists the publisher as Unknown and then gives you a Class ID of {E5A040E9-1097-4D24-B89E-#c730036D615}.

After poking around a bit it seems that this error comes when you link your Microsoft Live account to your Domain User account. You can see that I have done that in the PC Settings:

A work-around until this is resolved is to unlink your accounts as machines that are unlinked don’t seem to get the error.
