    Metro Applications and PC Settings don't start after click


    Hello,

    I click on the icons and the application don't start.
    The Metro applications were working fine, but they stopped working.
    Anyone have this problem or anyone know how to solve it?

    Thanks

    Try running System File Checker, open a command window with administrative priviledges and type "sfc /scannow" (without quotes).

    It's going to scan your Windows install and fix any corruptions you may have, if you're lucky it will fix your problem. After a Windows Update all my non native Windows 8 Apps disappeared from my Start Screen and no longer showed up in my All Apps list. I ran this command and they all showed up again. It's not a new command, it existed in Windows 7 as well.
