    Unable to download free apps from Store


    I tried downloading various apps from the store, but the message I get was I can't install this app.
    For example, I tried to install PDF Reader 8, and I get error code 0x80070032.
    Does the error code reveal what the problem is?
    I am running Windows 8, not Windows 8.1, on the Lenovo IdeaPad.

    David, I clicked on that link and ran the scan, but it wouldn't fix the errors without my paying a subscription fee.
    It reminded me of a malware-scam.
    Would you recommend upgrading to Windows 8.1 instead?

    Sorry for the bad link.

    Yes, if it's still free from the Windows Store.

    Just finished installing Windows 8.1, and haven't noticed any problems yet.
    I'll report back if I notice anything wrong.

    Well, when I tried the apps on the start page, they don't allow me to proceed. When I click on the Store tile, a page comes up for a second, then the Start Screen reappears. I have seen that others have reported the same problem. Is this a bug in Windows 8.1?

    Probably.

    I never had a problem installing just once installed they wouldn't work.

    When I ran WSReset.exe, the message displayed was, "Remote procedure call failed."
    Anybody have any ideas?
