    Windows 8 wont load apps


    Firstly I am sorry if this is in the wrong section.

    So I am here because I have a bit of a problem. I cannot load any apps.
    Ok so last night i was on my laptop and i let it run out of battery then i went to sleep. I woke up this morning and it turned out my laptop was actually still on so i restarted it and plugged in my charger. This is when the problems started to begin.
    It wouldnt load up and it said there was a problem and it had options to refresh to reset and i pressed refresh i let it all refresh etc. So i thought great my laptop is back to normal.

    After this i realised that my apps where gone and i thought id be able to download them again as it was only a refresh. Everytime i click on the store it brings me back to the home screen so i thought i will do a system restore and it was doing the dame thing everytime i click on Change PC settings.

    I have looked on the internet everywhere on how to fix this. I've tried everything from going on cmd to running misconfig etc. Nothing works.

    Then i notice i cant access my files! It seems like my hardrive or something is locked it comes up saying C:// is not accessable.
    It wont do a diagnosis or anything
    Please can someone help me
    Thank you

    First, Windows 8's "Refresh" option is essentially a clean install. It wipes all programs and the system directory, installs Windows 8, then re-installs any "Modern UI" apps you owned. Any older programs are deleted, and have to be installed manually.

    As for your second problem, how can you even boot the laptop if it won't access drive C:? That seems highly unlikely.
