    Clicking on "App" and nothing happens apart from the tile going dark


    I am using a normal Administrator local account set up with my own user name. UAC is turned off.
    Any idea why I can't use the metro style "apps" (not a huge fan of them, but I want them to be accessible if I choose to use them). For instance "Weather", "Twitter", "Store", "Money" etc. When I click on them they just go dark and nothing more happens. If I close the Start Menu and open it again, they are still dark.

    Don't know why this is happening to you but it does seem to be a problem that crops up on these forums many times. The usual fix is to perform a repair install with an in-place upgrade.

    No. The advantage of this method is that it preserves your data and apps as explained in the tutorial.
