    Windows 8 Apps don't work


    Hi there,

    I just installed windows 8 yesterday. I've been able to use a few apps like mail, store and skype. But other apps like music or games don't work. most of the apps downloaded don't work either like wikipedia or IM+. I tried using fiddler, turning off my antivirus (trendmicro security), refreshed (which was a pain because i had to install all my stuff again). nothing seems too work. any suggestions?

    And for some reason starcraft 2 couldn't work. Steam works fine.

    Please help thanks

    HOW did you get Skype to work!?!?

    When I open the app it says it needs to be updated. So, I click it to update and it will either say pending forever or say downloading with only a tiny bit of green and won't move for HOURS. Did your Skype just automatically work!?
