    Downloads are enabled over metered connections and the Desktop PC is hard wired to the router. The Apps update if you check manually and the auto update works from an Administrator account. I'm this shortcut for the time being Store "Check for Updates" Shortcut - Create in Windows 8

    Please advise how to solve this problem.
