    Hello Maeve, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    If you have a 3rd party AV or firewall program installed, then see if either updating to the latest version or uninstalling/reinstalling it may help.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    Hi, tried this (I had Avast free antivirus) but no change. Is it true that I don't need antivirus as windows 8 already has it installed?

    Windows 8 comes with Windows Defender (rebranded Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE)).

    Refreshing Windows 8 may help then.

    Hi, After refreshing windows 8 with no luck and losing a lot of programs etc. I decided to reload windows 7 and forget about 8 for a while. It is more to my liking. Thanks anyway, Mavis

    Ok. When you're ready for Windows 8 again, be sure to do a clean install with it instead of an upgrade install.

Is it just me or has the "store" changed. I now get a totally different screen (see attached) when I load it up and no apps at all in any of the sections.
