    Many Windows Apps like calculator, photos, and store not working.

    Hello all, I am new here and have never posted before so sorry if I do something wrong. I previously I had a problem with the start button and Cortana not working and I did some research and fixed that issue. Unfortunately I cannot recall how I fixed this issue. I think I read somewhere that the solution I used could affect the windows apps, and I don't regularly use these apps so I wouldn't have noticed immediately. I just found out that these apps are messing up and will not open. When I press the start menu and click all apps at the bottom there is a list of apps that do not work and they all start with "@microsoft" (I was having issues trying to attach a picture so here is a gyazo link for the picture attached. I've been trying to fix this issue using the powershell solution but it is not working for me. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

    Hello The Texman7, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    I'm afraid that your apps are broken, but you could do a repair install to fix them without losing anything.

    Thanks for the response. Just to be clear I need to disable my security program, download the windows 10 ISO File, mount it, then run it and follow the other instructions in the tutorial correct?
