    Apps will not load


    When I open an app on the start screen, the icon moves from the center of the screen to the top left corner and continues to try to load but never actually does.

    I was told this is an issue if I uninstall my Mcafee that came with the system. I fixed it by going to settings> change pc settings > general ... then scrolling down and refreshing the system back to the way it arrived. that's the only way I could resolve the problem. (If you refresh your system it will still keep files that you downloaded).

Metro apps won't load in Software and Apps
Got some strange problems with Metro apps, when some apps won't load. The problem is occuring only sometimes, sometimes it loads blazely fast. Just asking, not a very important problem for me, because I'm not using Metro apps so much, but still, it's probably a bug.
