    News and Sport apps crashing


    Wondering if this is happening to anyone else, or of its just me. My News and Sport apps keep crashing. It started a couple of weeks ago. I've uninstalled them, reinstalled them, even refreshed my pc. Nothing works. Open them and after about 20 seconds they crash. Any ideas how I can fix this? Pretty frustrating.

    I've got a crummy Intel integrated card. But I used the Release preview and RTM extensively, and never had this issue.

Hello, I just recently upgraded from Win 8 to 8.1, and most everything seems to be working fine. The only issue I'm finding is that if I'm viewing some of the apps stories (News and Finance to be specific), and if I move my mouse/cursor, the photos in these apps will begin to act funny, like...
