Issue: I installed Windows 8 upgrade in 2012, eveything was working ok, on my ASUS (x64 bit) desktop (Model CG5270). In last several weeks, started noticing that all the Windows 8 UI (metro) aps i use (IE, Microsoft store) etc are not working, when I try to launch them. For example I click on Microsft Store or IE, and they either hang, or in the case of IE, say they can't connect. However, if I click on the desktop, all of my Aps (like IE) work perfectly, so this issue is related only to the Win8 UI (metro). In some internet troubleshooting posts I have seen that this can be fixed by completely reloading windows 8, but I have installed too many aps to make this practical, so i want someone to fix the issue without require a reinstall or reloading my aps. Also, please note i have three windows 8 PCs and this issue is only happening on my desktop. All of my PCs are up to date with all the windows updates etc.
