    Window's 8.1 apps ask for repairing and reinstalling

    I am using windows 8.1. It was ok till some day before. Now when I click the windows' app button, it shows "This app can't open. Contact your system administrator about repairing or reinstalling it." So what should I do now? Any suggestion. I tried troubleshooter but it does not work and my store app is not working too (even though it does show that sign).

    Hey mate, try the troubleshooter here (read it thoroughly, even though you said you did already): Windows Store Apps Troubleshooter - Fix Apps in Windows 8

    No luck? Try this on: Apps and Tiles Not Working or Responding: Fix in Windows 8
