If I try to install any app or update any app (I have 15 updates pending), I get the same message each time: "Something happened and this app couldn't be installed. Error code 0x80073d0a."
I am logged into the computer with my Microsoft account logon and I have Internet access. This is a clean install of Windows 8 Pro, I only preserved the data from Windows 7 ultimate.
I have tried a boot with all startup items and non-Microsoft services disabled and I ran sfc /scannow from an elevated command prompt. Neither had any affect.
I have yet to find a single app that will install although I admit that I have tested only free apps. None of the 15 pending updates to apps have installed.
I have 1.5 terrabytes free on drive C:, have 16 gigs of RAM installed and am running an 8 core AMD FX-8150 CPU so there is no shortage of system resources. All Windows updates are installed. I tried both with and without AVG Antivirus installed and it made no difference.
Thanks in advance for any ideas.
