I have a possible solution; I don't offer any guarantee that it will work for anyone, but it did work for me.
From what I can tell, something on the PWE side is flagging your IP address (if you have any sort of persistent IP address) and account, preventing login. After reinstalling EVERYTHING and still finding the bug, I *switched* to another internet connection method with dynamic IP addressing.
BINGO. Got in immediately.
Hmm, I thought. So the bug is somehow related to connection method or pathway? Maybe it's an IP addy problem?
So I switched off the original router (the one through which the bug kept presenting) and left it off for 3-4 hours. Upon restart, BINGO. Got in immediately (I suspect due to forcing it to pick up a new IP addy from my ISP).
It might be worthwhile to figure out how to get a new IP address from your ISP (leaving your router off for a few hours should do it unless you have a 'hard' IP address).
