    Apps are not working.


    Running Windows 8.1 and apps are not working. They were perfectly fine this morning, then later today, every one of them, except like two that I know of, IE and the Store. Other than that, music, Facebook, twitter, dropbox, etc. they're not working.

    I've refreshed my Windows 8, didn't fix it. I've also done sfc /scannow and it found nothing wrong. Why is this doing this?

    The Weather Channel tile is broken.
    Maybe it will get better tomorrow.

    EDIT-- Uninstalled it & reinstalled it & now it works.

    Are you sure it's Microsoft fault? Can you access music, Facebook, twitter or any of those apps?

    I had to add ALL APPLICATIONS PACKAGES with full control to the security tab in the advance section.
