    Problem with Windows 8.1 Apps (Calendar, calculator, etc.)


    Hello Guys, lately I've been having some problems with my apps of windows thats driving me crazy, they just don't run.

    It all started when I uninstalled the antivirus Kapersky, now, when I click on any windows app, it pops up and then disappears, I can see the software running on the lower bar, but its blank, and everytime I click on it dosent do anything, I have read several posts and threads about similar issues, seems that refreshing the windows OS will solve the issue its just that I have about 50 softwares on my computer of great need for my work and refreshing the OS will erase them all.

    Can someone please help me about this, its urgent for me, THANKS!

    I don't believe it's just you, daviduzago. I have been having problems with Windows 8.1 apps also - the ones I already have installed seem to be ok, but when I try to install a new one, it installs and then will not open - just reverts back to the Start Screen and I get errors in Event Viewer. I've tried many suggestions ranging from Synching the apps to changing user account, etc. but so far no luck in solving the problem. Will post back here if I believe I've found an answer, please do the same. Thanks.
