I can't open any Windows 8 apps including PC Settings and Store:

All windows apps installed with OS will not launch

 

Activation of app windows.immersivecontrolpanel_cw5n1h2txyewy!microsoft.windows.immersivecontrolpanel failed with error: This app failed to launch because of an issue with its license. Please try again in a moment. See the Microsoft-Windows-TWinUI/Operational log for additional information.

 

I can't even launch PC Settings to install a clean OS.

 

Microsoft Support says I need to reinstall windows from Scratch?  Great productivity tool.
