    Strange problems: No files on desktop, store not working etc.


    Hello there,

    I upgraded my win 7 to 10 like a month ago, and since then I have a strange problems on my (desktop) computer.

    Firstly I noticed the problem with user accounts: I have 3 user accounts, and from time to time everything disappear from my desktop (icons and stuff) and seems like just rebooting helps. Then I noticed that I can't view any images, as windows default "Photos" app suddenly stopped working, so my primary photo view app is automatically changed to "TWINUI" - whatever that is. And I can't change it, as the only option I can see is paint o.0 Then I wanted to go to store and see if I can get some other app for this, but now I can't even enter the store - it just doesn't responding at all, no errors, no nothing.
    Any idea what's going on and how can I fix it?
    I have a latest win 10 build - and I'm updating it regularly .

    Hi Nightmaster and welcome to Tenforums.

    You might want to try running sfc /scannow, to try and fix any problematic system files. It may require you run the tool at least 3 times, with reboots in-between.

    If that doesn't work, you could try an in-place repair to the OS, using the ISO from MSTechBench.
