    OK, here is the bottom line, nothing has changed. Cannot check for updates and cannot download anything from the store.

    All I can say is Wow !! You have one stubborn machine.

    I would like to recommend you do a clean boot and try updates, this would rule out third party software issues.

    Perform a Clean Boot in Windows 10 to Troubleshoot Software Conflicts

    After that I would get new media, I would backup my personal data off machine and I would start with a clean install. Part of that clean install would be to wipe all and any partitions on boot drive.

    Have you run any scanners for little unwanted guests, something like adwcleaner from malwarebytes?

    Well tomorrow came and went, with a much bigger issue to deal with then the inability to download apps from the MS Store.
    Check out this post: Multiple SYSTEM drives show in File Explorer. Solved - Windows 10 Forums

    You may be happy know that all is back to normal and I still cannot download apps or get updates. :)

    You live an exciting technology life. Very glad mine is very boring, touch wood.

    Have you used the Windows 10 Recovery Drive to create what I will call loosely the Emergency disk from 7. This Recovery Drive creates a USB key.

    Depending on how important the Store and apps are to you I think your last resort is a clean install, deleting all existing partitions.

    Good luck.

    It appears that youíre unable to install or update apps from windows store.


    The solution is:


    1. Open the start menu.
    2. Type msconfig.
    3. Open "System configuration"
    4. Select "Normal boot."
    5. Restart computer.

    Thanks Ken, because I am back to where I was right after the unwanted automatic Creators Update was forced on me, I am going back to the MS Store in Orlando and have them (if they are capable) fix the store and update issue. I have captured lots of screen-shots for them to look at, and a list of all the suggested (by MS) corrective but failed actions they recommended.

    I could always ask for my money back, I suppose. However if this machine can be fixed, it has great potential. I can then install all of my NLE and audio software and get back to business. Until then I am back to using my 2009 Windows 7 Sony Vaio VGNZ laptop.

    Oops, I omitted to mention that I did create a win 10 Recovery Drive using my Win 7 laptop, that is what got me going again.

    Great. I think you said you use the media creator to create a USB key.

    The recovery drive is similar but it allows you to load all you system drivers specific to that device. It is a built in process. If you want to check it out type recovery drive in cortana.

    A funny thing happened on the way to the Win 10 Forum just now. I have several Win 7 machines so I thought I would give one of them a shakedown and try downloading from the MS Store. Guess what, same deal, no go, kaput? Is it me or what, maybe my MS account is screwed up? I am going to try my Dell 755 Win 7 desktop. Grrr...
