Hello, So I just got 3 new Windows 8 computers and today the desktop need apps updated so I let the computer update the apps but it seemed like Windows Store is not letting them update. It says downloading but it never finishes or shows anything else.

Make sure you've installed any Windows Updates that are available for the system first - there are actual updates to Windows that affect the store itself, so until those are installed, the store will not work 100% with updating inbox applications. Search for "Windows Update", go to settings, and choose the "Install Optional Updates" icon to bring up the desktop version of Windows update. Use that to update your system (rebooting as necessary after each update pass) until you have no more updates. After that, the store will work without issue (or should, anyway).

Make sure you have Windows Firewall on even if you're using another one like Comodo - otherwise it won't either. (I know, it's retarded)
