Some Windows 8 apps immediately close after being launched.

Original title: Some windows 8 apps close after launch, wont open

 

Several Windows 8 apps including mail, skydrive and others no longer open after first launch. The screen comes up but immediately disappears. They are still active, however because they are listed as a running app.  They were all working two days ago then they began acting up. I have run sfc/scannow and it found and corrected some corrupt files but it didn't make a difference. The store itself is working OK.

I fixed the problem by reverting back to the last restore point. It was labeled a Java update however I don't think that was where my problem started.

 

Thanks,

Dave
