    Windows 10 Store not Downloading or updating


    I get error code 0x80071AC3 when I try to download or update. I have currently 4 apps waiting. Tried resetting Store as administrator and also removing and reinstalling Store. No change.
    Facebook however DID update today!

    Try this....Open Task Manager....click on Startup tab.....if OneDrive is there disable.....then Restart computer.

    Do a Chkdsk on main "C" Drive by right clicking on Winkey (bottom left corner) click on Windows Powershell (Admin) and type chkdsk /r ......press enter......when finished try downloading a Store App.

    If successful re-enable OneDrive in Startup and restart computer.

    Now try once again to download app from Store

    Thanks for those suggestions. OneDrive was already disabled. chkdsk /r had to be run on restart, which it did. But same result as before I'm afraid.

    I tried that at the very beginning .. tried it again just now .. same issues.
    I think I will try disabling everything in startup one at a time. Might work?

    Check for disk errors and it would not hurt to perform a disk cleanup.

    Or download WC.bat and run it as admin.

    Well I removed startup stuff .. even uninstalled AVG antivirus. No difference. Ran your batch file .. no difference. Crazy! Must be a MS issue. Haven't got the Creators Update yet .. maybe that will sort it.

    That's the way to go now...
