I keep having to repair Windows Store with the Troubleshooter Wizard after every Shutdown or Restart and want to find a permanent repair.  The Troubleshooter constantly reports three things, only one of which is Fixed, namely 'Store cache may damaged', and this has to be Fixed again every time.  The other two are: (a) Display adapter may be out of date  (B) Store configuration may be damaged.  How do I set about trying to repair these two / three conditions permanently?

 

Following advice I have repeatedly used ScanNow which does not report any problems and DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth ---- which does report problems but says it has repaired them.

 

What else can I try?

2. Type WSReset.exe, and click/tap on OK.

3. The Store will now open, and state the following: The cache for the store was cleared. You can now browse the store for apps

Thanks I will give that a try.. I have also just hard a return of the problem of various Store apps not working, including Store itself, with the message that they cannot open while File Explorer is running with Administrative privilages.  I asked how you withdraw Admin Privileges and never did get an answer to that.  Is it a sensible question?  If so, how do you do it? Otherwise I find I have to shutdown the computer and when it has restarted the issue has gone away.

Hi Clayto,

 

Let's see if this fixes some of the issues. It could be tied together.

Hi --- no I am afraid it did not work, it just too me back to Start after Store flashed on the scree and off in a moment.  Two error messages are displayed:

 

'Windows cannot find WSR.exe' and 'Windows cannot find 'ms-windows-store:Purge Caches'.

Hello again

 

By pure chance I tried to run WSReset.exe in Command Prompt with Amin, not in Run.  It worked!  It does not completely resolve the issue but it is quicker / simpler than using the Troubleshooter.  It does not however, stop the issue on next Sartup.

Hi Clayto,

 

Found this fix hope it works. http://www.thewindowsclub.com/reset-windows-store-cacheIf this doesn’t not help, you may want to repair your corrupt Windows Image or Component Store using DISM.

 

Thanks,

 

Ron

Probably due, I am told, to the an Update download, I have had to have my Windows 8.1 re-installed and the Tablet returned to 'factory condition'.  Although I have spent hours reinstalling numerous apps / programs, some have benefited from being updated / refreshed and in particular the Store and a few corrupted apps are no longer giving me the trouble I was seeking help with! Some 'clouds have a silver lining'. I would not recommend this as a deliberate solution to the issues with the Store of course.  Thanks again for the help I was offered.
