    Win8.1 Update Killed Apps, Error Code: 0x80073d0a


    Ever since this new update with 8.1 I can't install any new apps.. I first noticed when my Mail app stopped working and froze my computer. So I uninstalled the app and when I tried to install it back I get the screenshot below.. So I tried Yahoo Mail, some games, some other apps.. Nothing will work. Mail finally said it installed, but it's not on my computer and the app store says it's already installed. It's just really f'd up and I'm running out of ideas to try.. I have my own custom built computer, if you need the specs look under the specs drop-down, it's all there

    One of the solutions from Microsoft is to turn on/off Windows Firewall.. I use another Firewall so it's been disabled, but I no longer have the option to turn it on or off or get into any settings.. I get this error instead.. Microsoft seems to have screwed up my OS..

    Problem solved.. Looked in msconfig and Windows Firewall somehow got disabled from boot up.. All is working again
