  3. Netflix

    Hi Marshall3,

    There could be a number of factors as to why you are having issues launching the Netflix app. This could be caused by a software conflict or due to an issue with the application itself.

    I suggest that you reset your Netflix application by following the steps provided below:

    • Go to Settings > Apps > Apps & Features.
    • Click the Netflix app from the list and then choose Advanced options.
    • Click Reset.

    If the issue persists, you can consider uninstalling and reinstalling the device. To uninstall, follow these steps:

    • Go to Settings > Apps > Apps & Features.
    • Click the Netflix app from the list and then choose Uninstall.

    Let us know how it goes and we'll assist you further if needed.

    iTunes not starting after WIN 10 Creators Update

    There may be a problem with the iTunes program that is why it is not launching whenever you're attempting to access it. Let us repair iTunes through
    Programs and Features under Control Panel to resolve the issue. To do this, follow these steps:

    • Delete iTunes shortcuts from the Start menu, Desktop, and Task bar.
    • Access Control Panel.
    • Click Programs and Features.
    • Look for iTunes, and then right click it.
    • Choose Repair.
    • Follow the repair prompt and wait for the repair process to finish running.
    • After running the repair process, check if you can start iTunes.
    Let us know how it goes after following the steps above.
