    No windows apps working... won't connect to internet


    Here is what I've done:
    1. Refresh Install
    2. Reinstall
    3. Use wifi and ethernet
    4. remove all antivirus
    5. restart computer
    6. make account local and then back to internet

    I have a dell 6400. It originally had windows 7 64 bit, and I installed windows 8 64 bit on day one. At one point I was able to access the store, but as of two weeks ago, I can no longer. (other apps have been knocked out for some time). I've installed the latest updates. What do?
