    KaozVirtus,

    The issues you are having are more than likely the result of downloading cracked/pirated/illegal software.
    Participating in the use of such software is a definite security risk.

    Accepting and allowing the use of illegal software is not a motivation for volunteering my help in this forum.

    Also, apologies that I took this long to get back...

    I have included the results
    Does any other Metro app work, or is Edge the only non-functional app?

    Did you turn off User Account control?

    Have you tried running an sfc/scannow?

    Hi there

    Question -- How much TIME have you spent on all this

    Next time - CLEAN RESTORE FROM A CLEAN BACKUP - would have taken you around 30 Mins max -- end of story

    Why don't people EVER LEARN - TAKE REGULAR CLEAN BACKUPS - then if you do get something nasty from a torrent site or elsewhere a CLEAN restore will rid the computer of any of this nasty stuff.

    Cheers

    "Accepting and allowing the use of illegal software is not a motivation for volunteering my help in this forum."

    Your 100% right about this - not arguing on that, although the only things I usually pirate are TV shows and Movies... seriously.


    "Why don't people EVER LEARN - TAKE REGULAR CLEAN BACKUPS - then if you do get something nasty from a torrent site or elsewhere a CLEAN restore will rid the computer of any of this nasty stuff."

    I actually have clean backups, I just dont know how to restore back to them :/


    "

    I have not turned that off ever - no


    "

    Doing that now.. didnt think of that...


    "

    I`ve noticed that the Windows Store doesnt work and keeps saying please check your connection... Shazam also doesnt wok....
