    Yes, exactly the same thing for me, too. All was fine when first upgraded but for the past couple of days not been able to even get Mail to open, then tried to update it using the Store/update facility and found I can't even open Store now so am totally stuck. Am also thinking of removing 10, but feel I should persevere to get these glitches sorted as it hopefully will be worth it in the end! Let's hope someone can help!!!

    I had already tried those things a few times as found info in other threads. Have also messed around with Location settings and stuff but nothing seems to work. Have tried the commands in both Powershell and Command Prompt windows....
    Should be a screenshot attached of what I get - nothing further happens....windows store and mail not working-image1.jpg

    have you tried wsreset? You need to wait until the command prompt closes on its own.

    If that has failed there is always System File Checker(SFC) and DISM:


    You can try fixing some errors by copy & pasting in an Admin

    CommandPrompt:

    Dism.exe /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup&sfc/scannow&Dism/Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth&sfc/scannow&pause

    And let it run through then
    reboot and run it again to check if it cleaned everything. It
    may take awhile depending on your hardware(HDD or SSD), and it may
    appear to freeze at 20% on the third part, just be patient and
    let in run out.

    Microsoft tech tier 2 , if you smooth talk your way threw the tech person she or he will help you for free one time as a courtesy, and then if she can't help she will elevate it to tier 2, but make sure you really get on it and tell her i thought windows was supported for 10 yr life cycle, and a bunch other BS and they will help you for free, it worked for me.
