    Restore points breaking start menu apps

    Does anyone else have the problem of restoring from a restore point causing the Start Menu Apps to crash? After restoring from a restore point, every time apps such as Weather, Sports, any Store app requiring communication, crashes. I've been having this problem since build 9941 thru 10122, on my old system and a brand new 7 day old system. Also happens with a clean install with no tweaks or mods of any kind. Re-register does nothing. WSRESET does nothing. Only cure is to re-image from backup. There must be a reason this continues to happen. Been going on now for almost 9 months! Help, please. Thanks.

    Now that you mention it, I think I have. I did a System Restore yesterday and all of the Modern apps except Settings and (I think) Spartan broke. I got errors about app integrity in the Event Viewer.

    The solution for me was to make a new local user account and log in to it. For some reason, this restored them.
