    Regarding Windows Apps and AppStore


    Well after a few "googled" remedies which didn't work, i thought that i would post the problem here . So , I am aware that many people are having the problem of the loop screen when trying to start windows app store . I am one of the . I tried to register manually and tried to run "fix it" from the Microsoft official website. So , anyone who had the same problem and has a solution to it , please reply .
    regards,

    All right So here it goes,
    When ever i try to start windows app store or any other app downloaded from it the startup logo appears in full screen(which is normal) but then after approx 2 seconds it becomes small and appears in the top left corner as in the screenshot and just goes on loading.
    It never stops loading...
    Will that be all to clearify your doubt?

    Hmm is ur version of Windows activated and running fine? and do u have the program for a long time or just suddenly for the time being?
    if the problem still persists then try resetting windows store, i'm not sure if ur apps will be retained but.

    and to reset windows store just open the start menu and type - wsreset.exe
    and run it as an admin!

    Are you logged in with a Live ID? Did this just recently start doing it? Worked OK in the past?

    I've had Apps quit in the past, not all, just a random few. That was with the early preview releases though. Haven't had any such problems in a long while now, knock on wood. I never did sort it out but my hunch was it was due to my video card drivers. They were beta releases too at that time. Have you updated any drivers recently? If you have system restore enabled you could try going back to a restore point before the problem started.

    Well i update my video card drivers regularly.And i guess it might be due to that.But my new drivers are pretty helpful so i would n't mind if the appstore is not working rather than rolling back driver.
