    Metro Apps flickering - Back to Logon

    i've a problem with some Metro Apps (e.g. News 360 and Reader). When I start this apps, i just get a flickering screen and some secounds later i get kicked out of windows back to the start screen.

    I captured a vid about this problem, you can find it here:

    Most of the preinstalled apps work fine (Store, Bing Weather, ...), also no problems on the "old" desktop. But every app from the store and the Reader app flickering around.
    Do you have any suggestions how to fix this?

    I use a Thinkpad T420.
    Intel Core i5-2520M
    8 GB Ram
    Intel HD Graphics 3000 in processor, and
    NVIDIA NVS™ 4200M

    Just installed News 360 and it's working as it should for me. I have, however, noticed that if you try to start some apps just after logging on that you get sent back to the Metro screen. The solution seems to be just to give it a little more time.
