    Hello remostalin,

    See if re-registering the Store using the method in the tutorial below may help. It has been reported to help with PC settings as well.

    Are you using Avast or some other 3rd party AV program?

    If so, you will need to make sure that the SystemSettings.exe file is added as a "Trusted process" (Avast) or safe list on other AV program to see if that may help like below.

    Hmm, ok. As a test, temporarily uninstall Avast to see PC settings will open afterwards to rule in/out Avast.
