    There's no error as such. When I open these bugged apps, they just open, show a blue screen that the app is opening amd then it closes.

    Sorry about the double post but I tried to undo the restore my dad done because he even lost a few emails from Outlook 2013 in the process which were quite important.

    But sadly this is the error I get:

    And apps are still having the same problem.

    you could try disabling the antivirus as suggest in the error box ,a system restore should not affect emails, you could reinstall the apps that don't work properly

    No antivirus installed on it.

    The files of the apps itself were missing. I have no idea how the files would go missing after a system restore. I had to uninstall the apps and install them through the store.
    I don't think the details in your link would have helped since the files themselves were missing. Maybe refreshing Windows would have helped.

    Thank you for your support guys. This forum really does solve a lot of Windows 8 problems. And so do your other sister sites solve problems for other Windows operating systems.
