    windows 8.1, no pc settings, tiles not working


    Last week I had to reinstall windows 8, as it was stuck on automatic repair loop message, I couldn't do anything with it, restore, refresh etc. Since I reinstalled windows 8.1 and the updates, I have noticed loads of problems. my drive letters have been changed I cannot access PC settings, all the app tiles are not working, I tried uninstalling and re -downloading from the store, keep getting an error message telling me they are unable to install my apps...What is going on??
    I have searched the net for more information but it seems very scarce on the ground. Microsoft's site is absolutely useless, I am tearing my hair out deciding whether to try a new install of windows 8 or will it leave me with the same problems again. Any advice appreciate
