    problem accessing store


    I recently had the problem of a 'continual prompt to access store account' which Brink helped resolve realising it was a Microsoft Outlook glitch (thanks for that!)

    However try as I might when I attempt opening Store I just get the message 'Windows Store isn't available on this PC. Contact your system administrator for more information' denying any access.

    I've obviously done something qualifying my Silver surfer status that I need help with!

    Hello Stefos,

    That's the message you get when the Store has been disabled. Enabling the Store using the tutorial below may be able to help with this if so.

    Store - Enable or Disable in Windows 8

    Hope this helps.
