    This happened to me ... all you need to do is click on the arrow in the lower left hand corner, then reload the start screen ... this will jump start the live tile again

    I kept getting messages about using my location so I enabled it.

    Sometimes the app works & sometimes it does not.
    It shows the wrong temperature.
    Bing is busted.

    I gave up on it & use NOAA for weather reports.

    Ease of Access


    I had the same problem on 2 computers and this worked for me:

    Control Panel\Ease of Access\Ease of Access Center\Make the computer easier to see.

    For some reason "Turn off unnecessary animations (when possible)" was checked. So I unchecked it and my live tiles that weren't working before are now.

    I would have thought this would have nothing to do with live tiles.

    Had a look and "Turn off unnecessary animations" is unchecked

    I did some more googling and found that 3rd party Anti-virus/malware software can cause issues with live tiles. Also if UAC is turned off tiles will not work.
