    Problems with windows app/app store/and windows update


    I found out that some apps were corrupted on this system (2 weeks old) so I was told to disable or reinstall them. Turns out they don't seem to even be installed (don't remember which they were) - so I started looking around and found out running windows update gives me an error as well running windows apps.

    Delete the directory it complains about and then try again.

    Yes, you have to take ownership of the folder first, then give "ALL APPLICATION PACKAGES" permission.
