    Windows 8 problems, Please HELP!!!


    So, I recently bought a Lenovo Y500 and it has Windows 8 on it. I set up everything and it was going fine.

    But, I can't access the microsoft store and I can't access "Change PC Settings" so as to reset my computer. None of the settings are working, please help me!!!

    If you need more info from me, feel free to ask.
