    Windows 10 Store not working (flashes opening opening before closing)


    Hello guys,

    Recently the windows store stopped working for me, well I say recently but I hadn't used it in a long time till recently so I don't know for how long it has actually been out of commission.

    When I try to open it it will flash for a second before quickly closing. Searching the internet for solutions has shown me that this is a known issue.

    So far I've tried a large number of things to try and fix it:

    -Tried Windows Powershell
    -Tried Win store Troubleshooter
    -Tried making a new Microsoft account
    -Tried using a local account
    -Tried clearing the store cache and deleting its folders
    -Tried messing around in regedit thinking it may be a permission issue
    -Tried Win store reset
    -Tried disabling firewall + antivirus and trying powershell + reset
    -Tried a clean install of Windows 10

    Nothings worked so far, so any new solutions would be greatly appreciated

    Cheers.

    Yes, a few of my other default apps do not work either, but I only really care about the store and the only reason for that is to buy Forza 3 :P

    I just went through a very similar scenario: Windows Store would open, but would frequently crash when a search was performed, and any downloads from the store wouldn't complete; an error message would be generated. Also, any pre-installed store apps would crash immediately. I went through all the 'solutions' (numerous times), except for a clean install, that you have tried, with no luck.
    What finally did work was booting from a recovery flash drive, and restoring the system to OOTB conditions. Choose "Remove my programs and files" on the Recovery screen, not the Recycle option. I then used a backup hard drive to re-install settings, apps, files, and programs.
    So, back up any and all files that you want to keep (You should perform a backup regularly anyway) on a separate drive, and run Recovery. Have fun!
