    Unable to click "free" button download in store...


    Hello,


    Noticed this issue on my laptop recently. I chose to reset my laptop to factory settings as it wasn't running the way I wanted to so I did a factory reset.


    Since the reset and updates installed I noticed that when I attempt to choose an app to download (apps I have previously had) it flashes up very quickly "Free" so as I hover over to click it disappears, then appears to be shaded out and the link does not work and no action is taken thereafter.


    I can see a few messages boards with topics of similar areas so I was hoping someone would know a fix or potentially what I should do.


    Cheers!

    :)
