    Can't open any windows metro app


    I can't open any windows metro app except internet explorer. Help? I have used AppsDiagnostic.diagcab and it only shows that I have an outdated visual driver (I do not, I'm simply not using windows' own driver) and that I might have corrupted files (I already used chkdsk and nothing was picked up).

    Please help? Thanks

    I've done some of those listed already, but it's nice to see you have compiled an easy to access list.

    I'll do my best to step through those and hopefully have my issue resolved.

    Thanks again.
