    Tiles Don't Load, Return to Start


    Most of my preinstalled app tiles suddenly don't load. Clicking on them takes me to their screen and immediately returns me to the start screen. Any thoughts.

    Have you tried running SFC /SCANNOW on an elevated command prompt?

    MrShowdown,
    Thanks for your quick response and direction. I ran sfc /scan now and received response:
    "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations."
    I tried some of the tiles again as still have the same problem where the app does not load and immediately returns me to Start.
    Any other thoughts?

    I a problem at least much like yours once by setting up a new user and then deleting the old one. Then, I repeated the process to get my original user name back. There is a way to change user names without creating a new user, but I would not use this procedure. Recovering from some of the bad things that can happen when using this procedure is not all that much fun. Here is a link to the topic where I reported doing my fix.

    Thanks for your response znod. I will try that in a couple of days when I have the time and don't need the PC for awhile.
