Ive had Windows 8 for several months and not had too many issues. Just noticed recently that some of the apps, like Mail, Calendar, People aren't loading when you click on them. If you click on Mail, nothing happens, if you click on Store, it looks like it's going to load but then redirects you back to the apps screen. Some of the apps work fine though like Skype.
I keep seeing info that having 3rd party anti-virus software might be the issue but I only have used Windows Defender since my McAfee subscription that came with the Dell Inspiron ran out. I didn't have any issues with the apps while McAfee was enabled.
I don't use most of the apps, but I do use Mail and it's most just annoying that it's not working. Help would be appreciated.
