    Metro apps won't open suddenly


    Hi all,
    I've been using Windows 8.1 x64 version for a long while now and it was all good ..
    until today when I was playing Football Manager 2014 for the first time and it gave me a BSOD during the first match ..
    after restarting the windows logged into a "Temporary account" and my main account was corrupted by the problem ..
    so I followed this useful guide here and got my account back (thanks to you ! ) ..
    but now all metro apps won't open .. even the "PC Settings" !
    they just "crash on startup"
    any ideas to fix this ?
    sorry for disturbing and thank you.
