    Hello prasvenkat25, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Run a SFC /SCANNOW command to repair any corrupted system files, then see if you may be able to do this to fix PC settings.

    If SFC was unable to repair the files, then see if doing the items listed in the blue note box at the bottom of OPTION TWO in the sfc tutorial will allow SFC to repair them afterwards.

    Hi! Thank you so much for this, I just did this because none of my windows apps like the store, settings, camera, music and video were working. Now the store and the settings started working again, but the others still won't open. Do you know what I should do to them to get them to work as well?

    I'd like to thank you as well! This has been bothering me for months and I finally got around to fixing it, thanks solely to your tutorial.

    Every other tutorial I tried seemed to miss the mark, but this one worked perfectly.

    Once again, thank you!
