Windows 8 App Store


We have a Windows 8 machine that is unable to access the App store, when we click the icon the store crashes and returns to the desktop. the same happens with Skype, which means we are unable to reinstall skype.
We've attempted to do system restores and that does not solve the problem at all, I wondered if anyone had an y other ideas.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Create a new user (enter email address) and switch user to the newly created user. It'll take a few minutes to create user's desktop, profiles, etc., (automatically). After the desktop appears, click store. And enjoy the store.
