    Unable to Connect to Store


    Hi, I've been trying on and off all week to update to 8.1, but the store won't connect. I just realized that none of the other Metro Apps have any internet either.

    I've tried turning off the firewall and changing my Internet Explorer LAN settings (I dunno, someone online said it would work), and I've got nothing. Any advice?

    Hi, Welcome to eightforums.

    This issue is common with Win 8. There is a feature "Trust my PC. You can find this in PC Settings / Users. You'll be taken to Microsoft's Account page and asked to sign in after which you can 'trust' your PC. After this you will be able to access store.

    @Archer: I tried that, but upon trying to switch from my regular account to a Microsoft account, I get this message:

    @HippsieGypsie: I tried that App Troubleshooter earlier and couldn't get anything to change. I'll try some of those other ones in a bit.

    @Theog: I installed the update, but I have yet to get any notifications. Is there any way to prompt the update to appear?

    Whoa! It feels like that your PC is telling you that you are not connected to internet .

    Run SFC /SCANNOW Command - Run in Windows 8
