    Thank your for this suggestion, but I am sorry to say it did not work. I wonder if there is a program in my startup that could be causing this.?
    I doubt it unless you're using a 3rd party firewall. Are you signed into a Microsoft user account or a local account? Also check the app settings and check for updates.

    If by signed in you mean signed into Windows 10, I use a local account and my windows 10 has all of the latest updates. Also I use a McAfee firewall.

    It could be that McAfee is blocking then(I'm not sure though. You may need to check the settings). Also here is a tutorial from @Brink on signing in to the store from a local account: Store - Sign in with Different Account in Windows 10

    I have turned off McAfee but it did not work.

    I already tried that tutorial. The popup screen in the in step 2 does not look like the popup screen I see.
    Mine says:
    Choose an Account
    Outlook.com, Hotmail, Live.com, MSN

    Work or school account
    Assigned by your organization

    When click on Choose an account I get a blank screen that then goes away.

    Yes, it is activated. What will happen if I reset the computer?

    You will need to backup any important files, documents, media and such before hand, as it sets your PC back to a fresh new state.

    NoteHere's what will happen:

    • All your personal files and apps will be removed.
    • All user accounts will be removed.
    • Your PC settings will be changed back to their defaults.
    • You will have an option to Keep my files or Remove everything.
    • If you have more than one drive (partition) on the Windows disk, you will have the option to remove all files on only the Windows drive or all drives on the disk.

    Here is the tutorial about resetting Windows 10: Reset Windows 10

    Will it delete all of the programs, such as Microsoft Office?

    Yup, that's why a repair install would be easier, and you won't lose any thing: Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade
