How do I fix get rid of broken apps from W8 after updating to W8.1?

    Question

  • After I updated my Windows 8 x64 Lenovo y410p PC to Windows 8.1 from the app store and updated and repaired all possible apps from the store, there's 5 apps (that appear without images):

    Microsoft.Camera
    Microsoft.WindowsLive.ModernPhotos
    Microsoft.Bing
    Microsoft.WindowsLive.Chat
    Microsoft.MicrosoftSkydrive

    that when I try to run them, I get the message "This app can't open" and it asks me to check the Store for a fix. When I click the button to do that, the Store opens and I get the message "There's a problem with the app you're trying to run, and it can't be repaired by Windows Store." I'm guessing these are the old apps from Windows 8 that are no longer supported on Windows 8.1 (since I also have separate working Photos, Camera, and Skydrive metro apps). The only exception is that when I run the broken chat app, the Store app offers to repair the Mail, Calendar, and Peoples app, but that does not remove the broken chat app. How do I get rid of these apps, since I can't uninstall them from then normal uninstall menu?

    Here's what there apps look like:
