Solved Modern UI Apps won't launch all of the sudden

So on my dad's notebook, an ASUS K55N, all of the sudden, all of the Modern UI apps stopped working, every time he clicks on one he gets a message saying "This App Can't Open", and all he did was run Windows Update this morning (he downloaded SP1 for Office, the big Update was installed yesterday, and he could use these Apps with no problem).

So what's going on here? What can be done?

Thanks.

Hello SlackerITGuy,

You might see if the listed troubleshooting steps in the tutorial below may be able to help. :)

Thanks for replying mate.

I ran the "sfc /scannnow" command just now, and it actually fixed it, so that was definitely surprising.

Thanks a lot, hopefully it won't happen a 2nd time.

I would +rep you but I need to spread it around more hahahaha, thanks again!
