  1. Code 0x80072F8F Unable to do certain things


    I have recently changed the date and time settings on my computer and since then, I have been unable to download or update apps on my computer through the Microsoft Store, and I have been unable to check for updates on my computer because of Error Code 0x80072F8F. I have tried many of the common methods of trying to fix this problem, like changing the time and date settings to the correct settings, and none of them have worked. If you could please help that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    :)

    Cannot install updates or Store apps, error code 0x80072F8F

    All this looks alright, except the SFC /SCANNOW command returned a note about there being some corrupt files - I have the log saved if (part of?) it would be useful?

    Cannot install updates or Store apps, error code 0x80072F8F

    Puzzling. Tends to suggest permissions errors or other corruption.

    As a matter of routine, please run these basic checks.
    a. Check your disk e.g.
    HD Tune (free) Health and Error scan tabs (e.g. from Softpedia).
    b. If ok, run
    chkdsk c: /scan
    from an admin command or Powershell prompt
    c. if ok, run
    SFC /SCANNOW
    similarly

    Report the summary results.

    What is the status of these services?
