    All the Store Apps work fine now, after reloading the Store manifest using a PowerShell script.
    Most of the Default Metro Apps are missing, even from the All Apps section. The several that are left, like Settings, simply launch to the splash screen and freeze.
    All the folder and registry permissions look OK, I checked each one.
    So its just the Inbox Metro Apps that are still hosed, rest work fine.
    Other people with this issue, so its being investigated. I hope there is a solution short of flattening and starting over.

    OK, if I go into Program FIles\WIndowsApps, take ownership, then reload the manifests for all the unworking Inbox apps, they work!.
    Well, OK, the one I tried did. Yay!!!!

    Good, I'll bookmark this and save the script in case anyone else has this problem.
