    Check to see if it may be on your Apps screen. If not, then you may need to reinstall the Bing Weather app.

    As a test, switch your current Microsoft account to a local account, create yourself a new local administrator account, sign in to the new account, and switch the new local account to a Microsoft account with your same email address.

    See how everything works in the new account.

    Set your UAC settings to "Always Notify" (top level), and you should be able to do so in Control Panel -> User Accounts.

    SFC is not going to help with a user profile error though.

    SFC /SCANNOW Command - Run in Windows 8
