Apps / Software :: Windows 8.1 Built-in Apps Doesn't Start

Feb 22, 2014

Some few days ago there came a problem with my Laptop; and the problem was it starts consuming lot of battery when goes to idle mode. After Searching on internet i came to know that there is virus in My Laptop and there are only some programs which can remove it. Not even Avira, Microsoft Defender and any other. So i Just installed UnHackME software are cleaned my Windows 8.1. It worked Perfect and my problem seems to be resolved. But after removing that virus. New problem came in my Windows 8.1 and the Problem is :- When i Open Built-in Apps in my windows 8.1 Like App store, Skype, Mail, Finance, New, Health & Fitness, Weather, Calender, People, Food & Drink, Music, Games, Maps, Videos, News etc they just disappear after a single flash screen. The only apps which are in working condition are Camera, Sky drive and some apps which are created by installing some programs in my Windows 8.1.

What happens when i Open my apps :-

The app Screen Comes and after some 2-3 seconds it disappears...

What I've done so far :-

I tried to visit many communities and blogs but didn't find my problem resolved. I tried to run command sfc /scannow gave me following results after full scan Windows Resource Protection Found Corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. Details are included in the CBS.Log windirLogsCBSCBS.log. For example C:WindowsLogsCBSCBS.log. Note that logging is currently not supported in offline servicing scenerios. (Problem Not resolved) I tried to run different commands in different blogs even to re-install App Store so that i can even uninstall all apps and re-install them all but .. (Problem Not Resolve)

Because i have huge collection of software installed in my Windows and being student i cannot afford to get the pain of re-installing the windows 8.1. And after some days I have exams and I've to study as well.

Apps / Software :: Windows Store Apps Doesn't Render Properly

Feb 20, 2014

I really like windows 8 and stuff, but ive been having problems with windows 7 so i decided to install windows 8.1 and never look back, but it appears that ive had an issue for the first time ever with windows 8.x

So I was trying to make this game called blacklight retribution run on windows 8 (it crashes for some reason)

And at some point i was installing some radio apps for the metro interface and trying to play the game at the same time (my PC is pretty weak -3.1ghz AMD processor, 4gb ram, 500gb hdd and a radeon 3300 hd integrated graphics card)

So my windows 8.1 (with the latest updates) crashed with the all-cool-new-bluescreen-of-death and after that my windows store app renders its content as if its broken, here's what it looks like:

I restarted windows numerous times, but the windows store app still appears to be "broken" but other apps seem to work as they should.

I am new to windows 8 and I couldn't find a way to restore windows to an earlier point, I know a very straightforward way - reinstall windows 8.1.

Apps / Software :: Downloaded Metro Apps Doesn't Work

Feb 24, 2014

when I used one of my Metro App(Asphalt 8), The game showed the Gameloft logo but right after that it crashed.

Then I used another app which was Weather.. but it worked fine.. Again I tested Facebook app and it also crashed...

So then I downloaded one app (Flappy Birds Free) and it also crashed.. So I think that the downloaded apps are getting crashed.. I tried several fixes like using another user, turning off Windows Defender and Firewall, Clean booting, Updating Video drivers, scanning for viruses, using Metro apps troubleshooter, sfc /scannow, and all sorts of things.. There is only one more option left and that is to refresh Windows. But I don't have 8 CD. It got broken.. and I can't afford to buy a new one.. What should I do now?

Apps / Software :: ERROR - App Can't Be Activated By Built In Administrator

Jun 22, 2012

It seems like exactly something Vista would do. How to fix this so I can activate applications?

It was giving me this error at first with IE10, but now it's able to open.

I get the error for trying to launch those built in apps that I'll probably never use anyway.

The worst thing is I get the error if I try to open an image such as a png or jpeg.

Apps / Software :: Windows 8.1 Start Screen Apps Screwed UP?

May 1, 2014

why Microsoft pushed these Store Apps out and then screwed them up? I have some installed which work fine, but when trying to install others - they won't open. are being offered by Microsoft but there seems to be no solid explanation.This along with the real mess up on Update 1 for many users make me wonder who is in control of Windows.

Apps / Software :: Start Screen Apps Not Working Including Store

Dec 18, 2013

About three days ago, all new style apps stopped working. I click on the tile, get a deep blue screen, and nothing else. On the left side of the screen, I can see the app as if it is working (just the name of the app, not content), so I can close the window and get back to desktop. The same applies to the STORE app. The only tiles that work, are the links to desktop applications, which open correctly on the desktop. The fault also affects all windows system apps. For example if I search on the start screen for "windows update", I can access "Windows update" as it just opens a window on the desktop, but if I click on "Windows update settings" nothing happens. The same is true with all windows system apps that open in the new start screen system.

I've uninstalled two Microsoft updates that were installed over the past three days, no change. I uninstalled AVAST, no change, so I reinstalled it! I tried restoring the system, but found that I had only one restore, and that was corrupted. Very strange. Without access to many windows system apps, the computer is really limited. The desktop seems to be working OK. I can't refresh the PC, as firstly it is a system app that runs from the start screen, and secondly because I upgraded from win 8 to 8.1 online, this can't be done anyway, as I don't have a disc. I'm really trying to avoid reinstalling windows 8!

(Pavilion dv6, i7 processor, 6GB ram, originally win7, then I upgraded to win 8 and now 8.1. I've been running 8.1 for some months without problems, just occasionally on start-up from sleep, I get "error in non-cached memory" BSOD, and the system restarts.)

Apps / Software :: 8.1 Installed Apps Missing From Start Screen

Nov 12, 2013

When I was on Windows 8 I could install an app from the store and it would automatically put a tile for it on the start screen. After upgrading to 8.1 it stopped doing that. Now after I install an app I have to search for it and right click and tell it to pin to the start. Is there any way to have a tile automatically put on the start screen after install with 8.1?

How do I remove (from the start screen) the text at the bottom that says, on mine "13 new apps insalled". I have opened them up, that way I was hoping it would go away, but it wont. This happened when I installed the Windows 8.1 update 1, yesterday.

It also says "new" at the right side of every app. I rather not have it like this at all. I know what new apps I have installed already.

Apps / Software :: OneDrive Windows 8.1 Sync Doesn't Work?

May 19, 2014

Whenever OneDrive tries to automatically sync its files (or manually too), there's a pop-up on the desktop saying: OneDrive Sync Engine Host - OneDrive Sync Engine Host has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Please close the program.

I have googled it a lot and tried the CMD command posted as a solution, but it didn't work unfortunately.

maybe fully reinstall OneDrive as it is a standard feature of Windows 8.1 Pro...

Apps / Software :: Run As Administrator Doesn't Work In Modern UI

Aug 22, 2014

I'm not exactly sure when this problem cropped up since I don't use it often, but when I type "cmd" in Modern UI and right-click on the program, choose Run as administrator, I'm dropped to the desktop and nothing happens. This also happens if I list programs installed through the Modern UI and right-click on Command Prompt.

However, if I go to windows/system32 and right click CMD and choose Run as administrator in Desktop mode it works fine. I also installed Stardock's Start8 to return the classic start menu and when I type cmd there and choose Run as admin it works fine, or if I right-click the Start button and choose Run cmd as admin (not exact wording) it works fine. The Run as admin problem only seems to affect the Modern UI mode.

How this can be fixed? It's not that there aren't workarounds, it's just I prefer things to work as they're suppose to. I've checked my user credentials as well as the UAC settings and everything looks fine. How to fix this short of "re-install Windows".

Apps / Software :: Win 8.1 - Do Not Show (New App Installed Notification) Doesn't Work

May 24, 2014

I hate it when I double click a file and Windows 8.1 pops up a message saying I have other apps that can handle this extension.

I disabled this notification through GPEDIT.MSC, it works now when I open pics/docs/etc.... but let's say I install another app, for example, when I install Pale Moon Browser,

I hate Windows 8 so much! Even with a start menu replacement, this ticks me off, it's crappy Wireless LAN manager sucks, its performance is less when I benchmarks my SSD

I can go back to 7, but I am trying to fix a few things if I could just to benefit from the UEFI boot mode as for installing 7, I have to enable legacy ROM which is much slower during boot.

Windows 8 Apps Won't Start

Apr 29, 2013

It all worked fine until tonight, some of installed app just wont start, those default apps from Microsoft are still working fine though; the problem is when you open the app, it quits to the sidebar while its still running on the background it just doesn't respond to anything until you close it, whats stranger is those apps running fine on my second monitor, when i drag them to my primary screen, they crash.

The only major thing I've done lately to my system was update my catalyst driver to the latest one, not sure if that is related; I've tried uninstall app and reinstall again, and I'm running default Windows Defender, nothing's been changed.

And I don't want to do a refresh just for that...

Windows 8.1 - Startup Apps Won't Start If Monitor / TV Is Turned Off

Sep 22, 2013

My system os is windows 8.1. I connect to this system remotely regularly. When it is off, I turn it on remotely with WOL and it autologins into windows.

This computer is connected to a LG LED TV through HDMI port.

My issue is, whenever the TV is off, and I turn on the computer (remotely or locally), system boots up fine but the start up apps (those that I have put in Windows startup folder) won't start. As soon as I turn on the TV, windows will start running those start up apps. Needless to say that if the TV is on and I boot into wondows, start up apps start normally with no problem.

Whatever I tried has failed on me. I even tried to turn off windows 8 Fast Startup in power options but it didn't work. I originally had this issue in windows 8. So I installed windows 8.1 hoping that this issue would be gone but it has not. I tried windows server 2012. In server 2012, this issue does not exist and I have no problem with startup apps.
