    Bing News App Crashes Settings Corrupted


    I have 4 Windows 8.1 systems and the Bing News app crashes after a few seconds to a minute on all four. It used to work fine so obviously, the settings (which are synced by OneDrive) must be corrupted.

    Is there any way to clear the app settings? I tried uninstalling, rebooting, installing and that didn't work.

    I tried turning off sync on all 4 machines, uninstalling the app, deleting sync data using the web, rebooting, and reinstalling but the settings just come back!

    News was the one phone-style app that I used on Win 8 until it started losing my settings daily. I could not fix that either. Now win 8 is a purely desktop animal for me. The only icon on my start screen is "desktop", in case I accidentally end up there. :-)
