    Thanks, David. BTW, the scannow program did not find any problems with the system.

    @ Auricman
    Check your firewall.

    You are welcome.

    I run dism & sfc often to keep small problems from getting bigger.

    You have 2 green pips now.

    Check your firewall.
    I tried searching for 'firewall' in the search charm, but all it turned up was something on the internet.

    Found this thread at:
    Store - Re-register in Windows 8 and 8.1

    After upgrading to Windows 8.1, the Store may not start at all.
    1. Open a command prompt.

    2. In the command prompt, copy and paste the command below, and press Enter. (see screenshots below)

    Code:
    powershell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $Env:SystemRoot\WinStore\AppxManifest.XML

    This allowed me to visit the Windows Store. I hope it is a stable solution to not being able to shop at the store.
    It has been working for several days now, so it looks like it is the solution; but why was this patch necessary in the first place?
