    Hello Zaref,

    What issue are you having with Windows Location Provider?


    For now, double check using OPTION FOUR in the tutorial below to make sure that you have Windows Location Provider turned on (checked).
    Hope this helps for now,

    If you haven't already, restart the PC.

    Next, run a sfc /scannow command using OPTION TWO in the tutorial below to see if it may help if you have corrupted system file at fault. Continue with it until SFC shows no issues.

    SFC /SCANNOW Command - Run in Windows 8
