    Help with Blacked out apps including Windows store

    I have lost access to the Windows app store weather and other functions. It seems these items are blacked out and offer me no access to the market.

    Having noticed this and and having no luck finding resolution, I restored the PC to an earlier point. Still no joy.

    In Apps and features they are also grayed out

    Have I blocked these somehow? Is there a way to restore these?

    Here is the error when opening from apps and settings

    Also tried this, both from the app and then cmd (advanced)

    Something flashed across the cmd box quickly the went back to c:/....

    It doesn't appear to have fixed my issue

    I also ran
    dism /online /cleanup-image /checkhealth


    2.dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth.

    No joy

    In the process of attempting this sequence Refresh Windows 10

    This looks to be the way I may need to go. Though I'm hoping there's a more simple solution to restoring the blacked out apps
