I would appreciate some help with a number of Windows Store problems. The original problem occurred a week ago when I could no longer load the Microsoft Solitaire Collection Windows Store app running on my Win 8.1 Dell tablet. When it did not load it asked to be activated. The initial recommendation (from the answers.microsoft.com forum) was to uninstall and reinstall the app. However after uninstalling and attempting to reinstall the app it gives me a x80004005 error. I have run the WS reset command and the Windows App Troubleshooter and it has not fixed the problem. I have also run a sfc /scannow and the dism commands to check the component store, but both of them came back with any errors detected.
The Windows App Troubleshooter does mention that the service registration is missing or corrupt and resultant disposition is "Not Fixed".
I have tried to re-register the Windows Store app because it now errors out when it loads and claims it cannot connect to the Internet or server whenever it starts or when I go the App Updates page. A restart after the powershell re-register command (run under the Administrator account) did not fix this problem.
I have checked the Window Update, BITS and Crypto services and they are all running as expected. I have checked the Date and Time and it is set appropriately.
I also noted that when I open the MSN News app that my customized news sections are not shown (just the default sections).
Are there any other options / solutions that you can recommend to try?
Thanks for your help.
