    Error 0x80080005 in Windows Store After Creators Update

    My computer updated to Creators Update a day or two ago, and I'm getting a similar problem to the one I was getting here. Apps like Photos and Groove Music won't open - they just hang on the loading screen, and Windows Store does the same. However if I leave that for a while it does load properly but it has a load of app updates that aren't going through. All of them said Error - see details (the error code is 0x80080005) and when I tried restarting the download a few of them started saying 'acquiring licence' but nothing was happening. I just wanted to seek some advice from the people here - should I just wait for the next update/patch in the hope that it will fix this or am I better off downgrading back to the Anniversary Update (under which everything worked fine for me)?

    N.B. I ran wsreset.exe and also the Windows Store Troubleshooter, the troubleshooter found that "service registration is missing or corrupt" and said it had fixed it but this didn't resolve the problem.

    Rolling back to the Anniversary Update fixed it; I don't know why Microsoft forces such crappy updates on people without testing them properly first.
