We all know that Windows 10 comes with some pre-installed apps called built-in apps. It means whenever we create a new user account, all of these built-in apps will be available on that account. So whenever users have issues with built-in apps, Windows experts give them the advice to create a new user account and sort the issue. But by following that advice, the newly created user account won’t have those app which are installed from Windows Store. Hence, in this way the advice of creating new profile has a limitation and it doesn’t helps for apps installed from Store.

Start by running the Windows Store Apps troubleshooter. Open Start > Settings > Update & security > Troubleshoot Scroll down to the bottom Click Windows Store Apps Click Run the troubleshooter When complete try opening the Store again. Also check if the Store works in another user account. Press Windows key + R Type: wsreset.exe Hit Enter Do this a couple times then try launching the Store again. Your Antivirus might be interfering with the Store, try disabling it 'temporarily' to see if it launches. Check Windows Update and install the latest updates. Sometimes Microsoft releases infrastructure fixes for the Store through Windows Update. This can sometime help too: Delete the Software Distribution Folder Before carrying out this procedure, disconnect from the Internet. That means turning off Wi-Fi and disconnecting from a wired connection. If you don't, Windows 10 will indicate some files are in use and cannot be modified or the command will be non-responsive. Also, you should restart your computer after disconnecting from the Internet. The easiest way to do it is to enable Aeroplan mode from the Action Center. 1. Press Windows Key + X on the keyboard and then select “Command Prompt (Admin)” from the menu. 2. Stop the BITS, Cryptographic, MSI Installer and the Windows Update Services. To do this, type the following commands at a command prompt. Press the “ENTER” key after you type each command. net stop wuauserv net stop cryptSvc net stop bits net stop msiserver 3. Now rename the SoftwareDistribution and Catroot2 folder. You can do this by typing the following commands in the Command Prompt. Press the “ENTER” key after you type each command. ren C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.old ren C:\Windows\System32\catroot2 Catroot2.old 4. Now, let’s restart the BITS, Cryptographic, MSI Installer and the Windows Update Services. Typethe following commands in the Command Prompt for this. Press the ENTER key after you type each command. net start wuauserv net start cryptSvc net start bits net start msiserver 5. Type Exit in the Command Prompt to close it and then restart the computer. Try accessing the Store again.
