    Microsoft Windows 8.1 Professional with Media Center Update 64 bit


    I used the official Microsoft App troubleshooter and it tells me this information:

    Windows Store configuration may be damaged: detected
    Display adapters may be out of date: detected
    Service registration is missing or corrupted: fixed
    Windows Store cache may be corrupted: fixed

    I also ran the Microsoft Accounts troubleshooter and it tells me this information:

    Can't connect to the sync service: detected
    Rootcauses found and created logs: detected

    What's going on here? I ran the sfc /scannow and DISM commands and it made some repairs and I already restarted my PC.

    Can someone explain to me what I need to know and how to fix these issues?

    I just want to get Netflix, Hulu, and Next Issue along with Microsoft Windows Media Center to work without having to refresh or reset my PC if possible.

    Thank you.

    Earlier today, I performed a Lenovo One Key system recovery to reset Microsoft Windows 8.1 64 bit back to the original factory default configuration and it was successful. I also re-installed a few of my favorite software applications and Windows 8.1 apps. It was successful. I now have access to Netflix, Hulu, Next Issue, and Microsoft Windows Media Center with the Netflix app. Everything works right out of the box and it is super speedy! I dreaded this decision, but I had no other choice other than to cancel my subscriptions which I was not willing to do yet. Solved.

    yup,it sucks but that's usually the quickest fix .a day restoring or weeks looking for a fix .

    Now, I've got a really known good installation that is fresh. I should have done this in the first place. No more messing with registry hacks, Microsoft .NET or Silverlight, sfc, DISM, chkdsk, etc. I plan to install Acronis True Image 2015 and I will perform a disk image backup after the final Microsoft Patch Tuesday on December 9th, 2014 at 1:00 PM EST. I'm taking it easy with the software security programs and I'm sticking with the ones that Microsoft provides like EMET 5.1 and MBSA 2.1 along with Windows Defender and Firewall with Advanced Security.

    I'm happy! I enjoy my Next Issue magazine subscription. They added some more magazines to their list of over 145 for premium subscribers. I plan to watch some Netflix and Hulu this weekend as a reward for my hard work yesterday.

    Yep. This is still solved. I'm debating whether to install Microsoft Windows Update KB3000850 or not. Tomorrow is Microsoft Patch Tuesday. I'm hoping that it will go well and I think that I will continue to wait for more information about KB3000850 before I decide to install it later this month.

    So, what do you think about my PC? I think it's pretty high end and I'm glad that I bought it and the Crucial SSD and RAM. It made my PC much faster as a result.

    I got to visit my friends in their apartment downstairs. Check you guys later.
