I get the "There was an error..." error when I setup a new account.

I get the "There was an error with your operation" error when I try to setup a new AdWords account.

I get this error on the 'Set your time zone and currency preferences' screen when I click 'Continue'.

 

The google account/email that I'm using is a custom named google domain.

 

I've tried rebooting, Firefox, Chrome, clearing cache and cookies and nothing works. Smiley Sad

 

Any more ideas?
