    Windows 8.1 Start Screen Apps Screwed UP

    Can anyone tell me why Microsoft pushed these Store Apps out and then screwed them up? I have some installed which work fine, but when trying to install others - they won't open. Suggestions from corrupted user account to sync problems to etc to etc are being offered by Microsoft but there seems to be no solid explanation. This along with the real mess up on Update 1 for many users make me wonder who is in control of Windows. I have, in the past, been a defender of Microsoft, but I am rapidly changing my mind. Shouldn't they think of their users? Or is it that they just don't have to?
