    Trouble with Win 8.1 ( apps not functioning )


    Ive noticed since I installed windows 8.1 none of my apps have been working I figured this is because I left the installer running over night and my laptop might of turned off before finishing the installation so it might be corrupt didnt think much of it at the time since I never really used the apps but now I want to system restore my laptop and the PC settings app wont open like the rest of my apps I click on the tile and it opens for 1-2 seconds then takes me back to the home screen. :C
