    News App unusable, suspends after a few seconds


    Hi.

    After yesterday's Windows 8.1 Update everything else is working well but the Bing News App has become unusable. Cold started or restored from Taskbar when suspended, the app allows me to browse news only a few seconds, then suddenly suspends and returns me back to desktop. See the video:



    I've done everything I know in my efforts to get News App working (everything here except not contacted the publisher, Bing (Microsoft)).

    Any ideas?

    An update:

    I've had no time to check my wife's laptop and one desktop this week, decided to do it today. Both have this same issue but not only with News App, it's all Store Apps. On my laptop, it's only the News App. On these two other rigs, all Store Apps; they start normally, then suspend.

    Anyone else experiencing this?

Hi I upgraded to Windows 8 about a month ago, and quite frankly I have never had so many problems on my previous operating systems (95, 98, 98SE, 2000NT, XP Home, XP Professional) as I have on this. I have had to completely reinstall Windows 8 three times now due to things going wrong, such...
In the News app, personalized news can be setup by entering a search string. These are created under Topics. Does anyone know what filter to add to have the results restricted by date (as only items for the last week) or to change the results filter to "most recent" rather than "best match". ...
Hello, Maybe it's just my Gateway computer or I messed it up somehow or it is Chrome or Norton, I don't know. A lot of times when a page loads it is unusable. Can't click on things or scroll it up or down. Until I right click an empty space on it & click on Inspect element.
