    Hello Wagnelles, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Are you having any issues with the Store or other Store apps running?

    For now, go through the list in the tutorial below to see if it may be able to help.

    If the list from the tutorial above doesn't help, then you might see if turning off Internet Explorer 10 in Windows Features, restart PC, and turning IE10 back on may help.
