Windows 8 Apps NOT Loading

    Question

  • Hi,

    I upgraded to Windows 8 pro from Windows 7 two days ago. Initially all apps were working just fine. However, after I updated some application through the App Store, all of my apps stopped working. They would load, but then disappear. I even tried to refreshed my entire computer and it did not help. What should I do?

    Thanks.

  • Hi,

    If so, you could perform system restore to go back a previous time point to get rid of it.

    For this kind of issue, it mostly is related to the software conflicts, we can also reinstall apps to see how it works.

  • Hi,

    If you are using Avast...try disabling it.

  • Same problem here.  I have my resolution was 1920x1080 (tried others with no luck).

    Updated all graphics drivers, tried an external display, can't figured it out.

    The apps bring up the splash screen and sit there with the little dots spinning in a circle.

  • Hi,

    Please try testing in Clean Boot mode, due to this may be caused by software conflicts.

  • Hello,

    I was having the same problem... it has to do with a particular update they rolled out.  I forget which one though, but it was roughly 170MB.  I was able to find the exact name of the update on a Windows 8 board, but I am having trouble locating it again... I have since turned off auto updates on my HP.
