    Hi - these are the services that are disabled on my computer:

    Internet connection sharing (ICS)
    Net.Tcp Port sharing Service
    Remote Registry
    Routing and Remote Access
    Smart Card

    Any of these related to the metro apps not working?

    Hi again...tried a bunch of them and made sure I restarted them...but no luck. I will keep trying.

    I would be willing to post a list of the non-running services on my computer - if you would be willing to look through your services and see if there is something that is off on mine that is running on your yours. It would be nice to pinpoint the exact issue for other people as well.

    Possibly.

    Here is how those are set on my system after MS worked on it.

    Internet connection sharing (ICS)---AUTOMATIC
    Net.Tcp Port sharing Service----AUTOMATIC
    Remote Registry----AUTOMATIC (Trigger Start)
    Routing and Remote Access----AUTOMATIC
    Smart Card----AUTOMATIC (Trigger Start)


    You double click on the entry and change it to Automatic then click the start button in the box to restarts the service.

    If after trying these reboot and try some APPS.

    If they don't work, go back and restart Background Intelligent transfer and Background Task. (I say this because the MS tech reclicked it on AUTOMATIC then restarted them.) The "Delayed Start " appeared after boot.

    Check to make sure there is no other Security service in there other then the one you are using. I.e., Like an old Mcafee or something.

    Earlier I had discovered 2 services for my Lexmark printer that had been turned off after my upgrade.
