    not able to open store and pc settings


    Dear all,

    Yesterday my HP sleekbook arrived (cheaper amd version) with windows 8. Everything works fine except that I can't open the store or pc settings. When I click on the store tile, or click on the more settings button, the fullscreen (green for store, blue for settings) icon fills the screen en then dissapears.

    I have tried the sfc / scannow option but this did not work after 3 trials. Reset or Refresh also isn't an option because I can't enter the settings and thus won't be able to perform these actions.

    Help please, I'm desperate!

    Hello swedishboy, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    If you have a 3rd party AV or firewall program installed, then uninstall and reinstall it to see if that may help.

    Hope this helps for now,
    Shawn
