    Issues with Store

    So I'm having some major issues with the Store application at the moment. The issues started appearing day or two before the November update was released, and I couldn't install any application through the Store. (It was returning an error, can't remember which one.)

    After I managed to install the November update the issue disappeared until recently when it started happening again. I decided that today I should try a way to fix it. I saw some guides on the internet, by restarting the services, using WSRestart, rebooting and nothing worked. I also came across a few guides that required me to write some code on the Powershell command. Unfortunately one of them did this to the store:

    Any way to fix this issue please? Is a clean install the only thing left for me to do now?

    EDIT: The error I was getting on the Store while installing was 0x80240438

    So after a quick system restore to the previous day, the Store is back as it was. But I still can't download applications, anything at all. It says "Starting download" for a second and then switches to "Give us a few minutes". After clicking 'See details' this appears:

    As I said I did have this error before, briefly, but it got fixed after applying the November update. Now its back again and it is very annoying.

    Apparently, the reason why my system is damaged beyond normal repair is the installation of this program called "DWS Lite 1.6" which promises to destroy the spying done by Windows 10 but unfortunately as I didn't read it also deletes applications and the changes can't be reverted back.

    I believe that the only thing left for me to do now is to do a clean installation, and lose many applications and games. I decided to write this as a warning, to not trust this software. There are other safer alternatives if you want to disable the system from spying you.
