    I had been trying several things and something worked. I don't know what, but a setting somewhere (my guess the Registry) was set correctly. I have access now.

    I have an administrator account and another account (I'm the only user so will delete all but admin acct). It is just a home desktop. My admin account has the issue of any Metro app minimizing after 5-10 seconds, but the other account is able to access them, but I can't log into the Store because the admin account already is set up with a Microsoft account. How can I switch the account to both windows accounts?.

    I'm thinking I could just make the "non-admin" account an Administrator account and delete the other one.

    I no longer have this problem, only because I upgraded to Windows 10. Goodbye Windows 8.1!

    Upgrade to Windows 10 to avoid those problem. I have pressed reset 10 times, and Windows Apps are still working fine. I think Windows Vista and 8/8.1 are the failure OS, correct?

Hello! After a long search, I finally found a solution to the problem where metro apps crash after briefly showing the splash screen. What did the trick with me was installing the "media pack for the N version of windows 8.1" (if your Windows version would be "N" - didn't know it was the...
