    Unable to Launch Store App, Apps, PC Settings App.

    Hi, I have tried the Tutorial (Apps and Tiles Not Working or Responding: Fix in Windows 8)
    All does not work, including sfc/scannow and dism.

    Is there anything I can do without having to Refresh or Reseting my laptop?

    I might have screwed something up when I did a built in Disk Cleanup.

    Hi mark4211 and welcome to Eight Forums!

    I would suggest you so a refresh. You won't lose any personal files. However, it will give you a list of applications it will delete, just copy that list onto a piece of paper and you should be fine.

    After the the refresh is completed, just reinstall you applications.

Unable to download free apps from Store
I tried downloading various apps from the store, but the message I get was I can't install this app. For example, I tried to install PDF Reader 8, and I get error code 0x80070032. Does the error code reveal what the problem is? I am running Windows 8, not Windows 8.1, on the Lenovo IdeaPad.
