    Kindly Thoroughly Read my thread and suggest me possible Solutions.
    If you would actually read the tutorial and go to the links in the steps, you would see that most of them do not involve opening the Store. Give them a try. You might be surprised.

    Try the following steps, and read each step carefully:-

    1) Fixing the app store:

    1. Open registry editor typing regedit.exe from a command line.
    2. Browse to the registry key at "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Currentversion\Appmodel\Repository\Packages"
    3. Right click on the “packages” key and bring up the “Permissions” tab.
    4. Click the “Advanced” button located at the bottom right corner.
    5. Check to see the account name that shows up as the “Owner” (this is the first line of text on the “advanced security settings” dialog for the “packages” key). It should say “SYSTEM”. (For me this showed the built-in local Administrators group)
    6. If it is any other account, click on the “Change” button next to it.
    7. Type SYSTEM in the “select user” dialog. If “Multiple Names Found” window comes up, select the row for “SYSTEM”.
    8. Click OK to the dialogs and close them all.
    9. Open admin command prompt(Windows Key +X, click on "Command Prompt (Admin)")
    10. Type this command in admin command prompt and press enter (or more conviniently, copy and right-click in CMD and select "Paste"):

    Powershell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $Env:SystemRoot\WinStore\AppxManifest.xml

    2) Fixing all modern apps:
    Open PowerShell as admin (Windows Key + Q, type PowerShell, right-click on Windows PowerShell and select "Run as Administrator")
    Type this command in admin PowerShell and press enter (or more conviniently, copy and right-click in PowerShell):

    ((Get-ChildItem "HKLM:SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Appx\AppxAllUserStore\InboxApplications") | Get-ItemProperty).Path | Add-AppxPackage -Register -DisableDevelopmentMode

    3) Fixing 3rd party apps:

    Open cmd, and type:

    wmic useraccount get name,sid
    to find out your user sid

    Delete the regkey(type Regedit in "Run" dialog box and navigate to following key and delete it):


    4) Restart computer.

    Hope it helps...
    If it helps, don't forget to 'Thumbs Up' me...

    Have you tried this solution to apps disappearing after one second?
    1. Open a command prompt.

    2. In the command prompt, copy and paste the command below, and press Enter.


    powershell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $Env:SystemRoot\WinStore\AppxManifest.XML
