    previous apps won't open

    I have the same problem. I recently updated my windows software from windows 8 to windows 8.1. The previous apps that were installed like weather, music, evernote, etc. won't open. I tried installing several apps from the Windows Store, some of my installed apps still wont open. I'd click an app, it would open and flash the app title on the screen but would close right away. I tried restarting my laptop, but it still won't open. I also tried searching online on how to fix it, I didn't find anything useful. Please help me fix this. Thanks.
