    My Metro Has Died.A sfc /SCANNOW shows no errors.see below

    sfc /SCANNOW shows no errors
    My metro shows the Desktop Tile and the store tile. and the store tile doesn't work. There are no other tiles.
    Under another login i have some colored tiles and some with symbols , all are dead/they don't update and the store doesn't work either.

    i ran the

    an it said i needed a microsoft live account and i had corrupt files
    is there any command to restore the app files and fix my store and re-install metro?
    if sfc /SCANNOW doesn't detect corrupt files then what?
    A refresh is out of the question as i am not re-installing all of my desktop apps.
    with a clean sfc /scannow there must be a fix.

    I already tried this and it fixed the sfc /scannow problems with the command below
    DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    is there a variant of the above command to fix Metro?

    In the event viewer i do see this error

    Unable to start a DCOM Server: Windows.Store as Unavailable/Unavailable. The error:
    Happened while starting this command:
    "C:\Windows\System32\WWAHost.exe" -ServerName:Windows.Store
    I have read that if i got the store to work it's easy to restore your apps.
    I have never purchased any apps i just wanted the default apps back.
    My charms still work. Luckily i have enough sense to have a start button alternative!

    Imagine No Metro and No Start Button!

    Hello DrHaze, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Other than to refresh or reset Windows 8 to fix this, the only other thing that may would be to do a system restore using a restore point (if available) dated before this happened.

    Hope this helps,

    If that's the official answer then i just disabled the store tile.
    I will be using Stardock Start8 and waiting to see what windows blue update does to a broken metro in the middle of this year.
    Windows updates seem to work fine.Hopefully all the updates will install until "Blue".
    Since there is no corruption with sfc /scannow. and there is now way to re install the store itself.Which is a design flaw.
    I will be fine. I have so many games installed, everything runs beautifully. I can live just fine without metro.
