    I can open the microsoft store just fine, but if I try to sign in this happens. This also happened when I was already signed in but signed out because I was trying to fix the problem.

    So far I have tried:

    • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\

    Change RemoveWindowsStore 1 to 0


    These have not worked. Recently I visited the IRL MS Store to get them to reset my system as it bugged out when I reset it and possibly this occurred from this being an offline account that was switched to online.

    :)

  3. group policy blocking programs

    Hi,

    I'm currently trying to reinstall internet protocol (TCP/IP) Tunnels, but an error message indicates that group policy is blocking the program. I have already tried to manually find the policy in question but was unsuccessful. I have also tried to disable
    the group policy program overall thru both the command prompt and registry editor (regedit). The problem still persists and I have no clue what to try next. Anyone have ideas?

    Which apps got blocked by group policy?


    Hi. On Windows 10 Pro, I'm using group policy for non-admins to allow only specified programs ("Run only specified Windows applications"). But how to get a list of programs that got blocked by the group policy? I tried to see that in Event Viewer, Process Explorer and Process Monitor (from SysInternals), but they don't seem to help, or I don't know what to look for. Please help, thanks a lot.
