  6. After hours and hours of googling fixes for this stupid Windows Store issue, and following instructions into places I had no business being; completely removing the Store via Powershell, and adding it back, only to have the same result, I finally happened upon your fix. I can't believe it, but your method 1 was the cure. My region and language settings were out of sync. Once I corrected those, the store opened normally. Good Grief!! I am now a subscriber. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Now if I could only find a way to keep the auto-rotate from locking every time I boot up. I have to manually go into the settings to turn it off, so I can flip the screen and auto-rotate. For some reason, the "apply" button doesn't become active when I change the setting. Go figure. But thanks for getting my Store back. (So frustrating.)

  7. I talked with an actual person from microsoft to fix this problem all you have to do is go to settings then scroll down to updates & security then go to updates.. download and install updates and restart your computer and let the updates finnish and it works again.. easy fix with none of this other crap.
