    Windows 8 Apps wont start


    it all worked fine until tonight, some of installed app just wont start, those default apps from Microsoft are still working fine though;
    the problem is when you open the app, it quits to the sidebar while its still running on the background it just doesn't respond to anything until you close it, whats stranger is those apps running fine on my second monitor, when i drag them to my primary screen, they crash.
    the only major thing I've done lately to my system was update my catalyst driver to the latest one, not sure if that is related; I've tried uninstall app and reinstall again, doesn't help, and I'm running default Windows Defender, nothing's been changed.

    and i dont want to do a refresh just for that

Hello. So I'll just get to the point. I can't seem to open any off my apps from the start menu. When I open an app, the app closes back but is available at the sidewindow(?). It doesn't load or anything. When I click it, the app sort of minimizes to the sidewindow(?). So I've been lurking around...
