8.1 pro

We are currently experiencing issues 8.1 pro, when we put the computers in the domain the metro tiles x out. We checked and they are not  pulling any group policy. When we take them off the domain the tiles reappear as soon as we put in a domain they x out I have read that you need to keep the firewalls on the machines running we can not do this since we have a backup system that copys all the machine drives. Any ideas??

I doubt it has to do with the firewall, but running the machines without a local firewall is crazy. You should look into some way to get the backup system to login with credentials instead of just leaving the systems wide open.

This link seems to provide the answer:

From the link:

The following finally fixed all issues for me (Store and all apps broken with black X, can't access PC Settings):
A.) Fixing the app store:

1.

Open registry editor typing regedit.exe from a command line.

2.

Browse to the registry key at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\appmodel\repository\packages.

3.

Right click on the “packages” key and bring up the “Permissions” tab.

4.

Click the “Advanced” button located at the bottom right corner.

5.

Check to see the account name that shows up as the “Owner” (this is the first line of text on the “advanced security settings” dialog for the “packages” key). It should say “SYSTEM”.  (For me this showed the built-in local Administrators group)

6.

If it is any other account, click on the “Change” button next to it.

7.

Type SYSTEM in the “select user” dialog. If “Multiple Names Found” window comes up, select the row for “SYSTEM”.

8.

Click OK to the dialogs and close them all.

9.

Run from admin command prompt:     Powershell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $Env:SystemRoot\WinStore\AppxManifest.xml
B.) Fixing all modern apps:

1.

Run from admin PowerShell:
((Get-ChildItem "HKLM:SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Appx\AppxAllUserStore\InboxApplications") | Get-ItemProperty).Path | Add-AppxPackage -Register -DisableDevelopmentMode
    * When I ran this the black X persisted until after the next step and reboot.  But trying to start an app gives me a new message and a link to the store.
C.) Fixing 3rd party apps:

1.

Delete the regkey:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Appx\AppxAllUserStore\[UserSID]

          You can find your SID by going to an elevated command prompt and typing
                        wmic useraccount get name,sid
D.) Restart.  After a reboot the apps still showed the black X for a minute or so, but it soon cleared up on its own and all apps seemed to be working again.  I was also able to update the apps from the app store once signing in with a Microsoft account.  Finally, I am again able to get into PC Settings.

Are you launching the registry editor and  command prompt as administrator? You have to right-click on the icon and select "run as administrator"

Running as Admin

marsiliesCommented:
Do you mean your login is admin, or that you're explicitly starting programs as admin? UAC prevents programs from running as admin, even on an admin account, unless you explicitly start them as admin.

What is the error message that registry edit shows when you try and start it as admin? Can you take a screen capture using the snipping tool?

I am logged in as an Admin and Trying to change the permissions on the Packages folder and it tells me that I need admin rights  to change the permission levels. I was logged in as an admin local and domain and could not add the rights to the permissions.  So I thought i could just run the  first powershell script but it errored out which i attached earlier

Check your User Account Control (UAC) settings. In Control Panel, View by: Large Icons and go to "User Accounts" and click on "Change User Account Control settings."

should I put this at its lowest level?

marsiliesCommented:
You can put it at the lowest level while running the steps, to make sure they have administrator privileges while run. However, UAC is useful in protecting against malware infections, so set it on the highest level once done.
