    Can't update or find any apps in windows store


    I can't update of find any apps in windows store. The store broker, wshost.exe, is taking around 30% cpu usage and will increase easily to 80%. Any help would be appreciated.

    many, many people are having this problem. The general fix people are resorting to is disabling the store until the issue is identified and fixed.

    This tutorial by brink should help if you choose to disable.
