I actually like Windows 8 and want to use it, but I am having a problem with several tiles including: The New York Times, Bing Search (standard Windows 8 tile), and Weather (standard Windows 8 tile). When I try to access Settings for the NYT, I get the message "windows 8 can't get settings for this app right now." I also cannot click on any articles.
In Bing, I get the same error message, and only get the splash screen and sometimes the circling dots thing; but it doesn't open.
Weather has the same problem as Bing.
All of my other tiles seem to work fine, including third party tiles (such as AccuWeather).
Is there a list of items I can check on my machine to resolve this problem? They all seem related.'
I tried Windows Refresh. I also tried running apps.diagcab.
I am almost ready to either ditch Windows 8 and go back to Windows 7 or buy a new computer with Windows 8.
