    I'd recommend to switch your broken MS account to a local account, create a new Microsoft account on the PC with the same email address, then set it up how you like. This will minimize how much you may have to set and reinstall since most of it will be synced.

    Not with a local account, but you will after you create a new Microsoft account on the PC with the same email address to use instead of the old broken user account.

    For some reason, Store and any other Modern UI apps/titles, such as PC settings, wouldn`t open. Just followed this tutorial and everything is working now, thanks mate for your help

    I have to do this on a lot of machines (after custom Image RefreshImage), Is there a way to make this a .bat file?

    Nevermind, (duh) Just added it to a txt file and changed to .bat

    Hello Phil,

    I'm happy to hear it was able to help.

    Sure, you would just copy the command in a .txt file, save it, and rename it to what you like with a .bat file extension.

    Here's one below ready for you if you like.

    Windows 8.1 Pro [Trying at least!]


    Hello Shawn! First of all I would like to to compliment you on all those tutorials and helpful guides you provide. I've done pretty much everything, but the thing is, I'm using a netbook. My store opens, but when it starts to load, it freezes up and crashes. Since I'm running my windows on a netbook Asus 1025C, I honestly don't expect it to be fully functional. So, if you can help me solve this out, I would be quite happy! But not only that, I would like to ask how "necessary" that store is, since I can still download and install programs out of it and they work perfectly.

    I'm attempting to use Windows 8 simply because it runs smoother than 7 this netbook, which I use pretty much only for studying and on the go movies, hehe.

    Thanks in advance!

    Thanks Shawn, I've read and tried all those steps before posting actually. Since I booted from 7 to 8, I think I'll try to do those steps again and see if everything fits properly. Like I said, I'm using a netbook, which might be the actual problem since the graphic component it hosts (though it says it can handle Win 8), might not be enough to do so. Or maybe something went wrong during the instalation process, that's why I might do it from the beggning again, hehe. I'll let you know of my findings! The native apps open, but crash right after and the netbook boots (I think this might be related to the instalation process overall). I ran the sfc / scannow, which returned me no errors, and the troubleshooter, which asked me to register the store again and clean the cache, but even after doing so, the store kept crashing and forcing the boot. If doing the upgrade process from 7 all the way up to 8.1 don't work I'll try to get some logs and send then to MS and see what what happens.

    Thanks once more!
