    Hello Tony,

    Do you have Avast installed by chance?

    If so, it may be blocking internet access to the Store.

    Tony,

    Do you have a 3rd party AV or firewall program installed that may be blocking internet access to the Store?

    Know i get We weren't able to connect to the store. This might have happened because os a server problem or the network connection timed out. please wait a few minutes and try again. (0x80072ee2) ughh

    Take a deep breath and calm down. It may be best to wait and try again a bit later when you have a clearer state of mind.
