    Windows 8 App strange error

    Hello,Im running Windows 8.1 Pro and everything app related ran fine.Weather, news etc. got it all configured and setup nicely on my home screen.I dont remember to have done anything substantial to my files, but one day i had to look at this screen:

    Click image for larger version

    The apps dont work anymore, opening one of them just shows a blank screen.uninstalling an app works, but while reinstalling i get the error code 0x80070490 and cant reinstall, weather app in this example.Other apps except the default microsoft shipped ones, seem to behave fine.I did wsreset and downloaded that app fix tool, nothing changed.Does anyone have an idea? even a longshot im pretty clueless here.Thanks!
