    Windows Store Automatically Loads


    After the 8.1 Update yesterday the Windows Store keeps automatically opening at boot. After I close it it will then re-open fifteen minutes later. Has anyone else experienced this? Any suggestions for fixing it?

    The store screen actually opens? On the machines I've updated, the Store will have an icon pinned to the Task bar but doesn't actually open.

    Yeah... the store actually opens up. Kind of annoying.

    It looks like it may have been a ModernMix issue. I uninstalled it and the problem went away. Re-installed it and it's still okay.

Slow app loads in Software and Apps
Boot time is reasonable, but the first apps to load take far too long (up to 90"), and occasionally do not respond. Once the system has been 'up' a while, apps load OK. Multitasking is sluggish (with a high quality I7 processor). The prime suspects, as deduced via multiple event viewer errors,...

I have a 2 tb Network store on a 1 gig Ethernet, which worked fine on Windows 7. I ran the upgrade advisor this facility and software was not identified as a potential problem. However it does NOT WORK. It just says it is incompatible on Windows 8. The Novostore website is not helpful.
