    People App Starts to Launch then Closes Immediately

    When I launch the People app, the app opens for a brief moment and then immediately closes.

    If I search for a name that I know is in my People list, from the charms menu, then the People app will open with information about that person. But if I touch "Home", the app acts as before - briefly displays the People app home screen, then closes.

    I've searched online for an answer but haven't seen anyone with this problem.

    The only connection I've made in the app is with Facebook.

    Any advice is appreciated. Is there a way to "reset" the People app from outside the app, for example?

    Hello, april. Welcome to EightForums.

    Try SFC /SCANNOW Command - Run in Windows 8. Its takes about 15 minutes. I'd say to run it a few times if necessary.

    Hope that helps.
