Hi Shoopang,

We appreciate your interest in Windows 10.

Sorry for the inconvenience caused to you.

Before proceeding, we need more information to help you better.

Kindly follow the below methods and check if it helps.

Method 1:

  2. Click File > Run New Task.

  3. Make sure you have a check mark beside “Create this task with administrative privileges

  4. Type Powershell

  5. Type the following in the Powershell prompt:
    $manifest = (Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.WindowsStore).InstallLocation + '\AppxManifest.xml' ; Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $manifest

Note: If you are not able to repair some files after performing SFC scan, I suggest you to refer to the point 3 “Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. Details are included in the CBS.Log %WinDir%\Logs\CBS\CBS.log”. Under the section “Run the System File Checker tool (SFC.exe)” to repair the corrupted files after performing SFC scan.

Use the System File Checker tool to repair missing or corrupted system files

I hope the above information helps. Kindly let us know if you need any further assistance with Windows. We are glad to assist you.
