    Microsoft Photos Giving Errors [​IMG]


    I cannot open any picture files and it looks like Microsoft Photos is corrupted. I didn't have this problem yesterday. When I go to the Microsoft Store and try to reinstall Photos, it doesn't work. A screen will pop up for a fraction of a second then close. I checked online for a solution and it said to uninstall Photos and reinstall it through the store. So, I uninstalled it by using Windows PowerShell and then tried again to reinstall it through the store..... And of course, it still doesn't work.

    When I tried to reinstall it using PowerShell, it said something about Window's Firewall being deactivated and that I need to turn that on first before installing Photos. This is very strange because I have Malwarebytes and that's pretty much my firewall. I've had it for a few weeks now and never had this kind of problem. I wonder what corrupted Photos. Has anyone else experienced this kind of problem?

    :)
