    Can not access apps


    I just got windows 8 and it was working fine for a few days, but now when i try to go to the "All Apps" page nothing shows up. The screen is all blue (my background color) but there are no apps shown. If I click or do anything it takes me back to the start menu. Also if I try searching anything it returns to the start menu as soon as I type something. Can anyone help me?

    Apps page error

    Whenever I try to go to the apps page nothing shows up and then windows reverts back to the start menu. It was working when I first got windows, this is a new issue. The error in the computer log reads as follows:

    Faulting application name: explorer.exe, version: 6.2.9200.16384, time stamp: 0x50107dbc

    When i try searching it does the same and i get this error message:

    Apparently you are not the only person with this issue.

    Explorer.exe crashing - twinui.dll?

    Did you upgrade or was this install from scratch?
