    Hi Guys,

    I'm at a loose end, my computer has one problem which is driving me crazy. My settings app, opens and then immediatly closes. I'm trying to avoid a fresh install as I have terabytes of data stored.

    (Other standalone merto apps are working perfectly apart from the ones that are dependant on) SystemSettings.exe

    What I have already tried

    Virus and system checks all passed - (Malwarebytes/ Windows Defender)
    Harddrive Scans/Defrags - (No errors)
    Chkdsk -
    (Windows has scanned the file system and found no problems.
    No further action is required.
    )
    Sfc /scannow -
    (Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.)
    Dism Repairs - (Online & From ISO Source)
    (No component store corruption detected.)
    Reset ImmersiveControlPanel Manualy (Renamed to ImmersiveControlPanel.bak)
    (Regenerated Applications Via Powershell) -
    With Command-
    powershell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $Env:SystemRootImmersiveControlPanelAppxManifest.xml
    Results
    cmdlet Add-AppxPackage at command pipeline position 1
    Supply values for the following parameters:
    Path:C:\Windows\ImmersiveControlPanel\appxmanifest.xml
    PS C:\Windows\system32>
    Created new user account (Issue still persists)
    MemTest86 - (No errors)
    Created new WindowsRE for refresh (Mounted Install.wim, extracted Winre.wim and enabled recovery and updated BCD) - Reset Failed

    Sorry it's my first post and I dont know how to copy and paste result logs into spoilers/extendables.

    Any further sugesstions would be greatly appreciated.

    :)

  2. Metro apps are gray-ed out and crashes instantly

    I recently did a system restore on windows 10 and all my metro apps were renamed to something like this: microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps_8wekyb3d8bbwe so I decided to reinstall windows 10 by going back to windows 8.1 and reinstalling.

    After reinstalling, my metro apps are grayed out when pinned and it instantly crashes when I try to launch. Windows store doesn't work either.

    Please help !!!

    UPDATE: When I try to open a file with a metro app for eg. photos, it says 'The application cannot be started because it is currently updating.' When I create a new user, windows store and the metro apps works fine.

    Metro apps are gray-ed out and crashes instantly

    Hi,

    Thank you for using Windows 10.

    I would suggest you to follow the steps:

    • Open the Task manager. Here’s a tip: Press CTRL+Shift+ESC.
    • Click File > Run New Task
    • Make sure you have a check mark beside “Create this task with administrative privileges”
    • Type CMD
    • Type the following 4 commands at the CMD prompt:

      dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

      sfc /scannow

      powershell

      Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers |Where-Object {$_.InstallLocation -like "*SystemApps*"} | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
    • Close the CMD window
    Check to see if the issue is resolved. If not, restart the PC.

    Keep us posted on the status of the issue and we’ll be glad to help.
