Windows 8 Apps won't load

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
so i too bought windows 8, and tried upgrade form windows 7 ultimate 64bit , first itme since windows ME i did upgrade, i really just wanna see if it works out,

well it does, everything looks good, there's no decrease of performance as far i can see,

so i do intend to use the metro apps, when i'm lazy that is

however, non of the app would load, it would open and have the loading circle going on forever and never actually opens

i see the icons updates my emails and everything, but when i open it show nothing.

I tried search on ocn, i can't find anything relevant...

any ideas?


thanks

So. You can do a clean install with the upgrade version. I highly recommend against installing any operating system on top of another. Do a clean install.

oh i know, but I'm asking about Metro apps specifically, see if anyone knows about it, or even a reason of why,
even if i have fresh install windows, it's more important to me to confirm about the issue.

thanks through.

I ran another round on google, I find nothing simular to my question nor a solution...

there are other metro problems solves by , latest v card driver.... firewall settings... etc

lets try to see if we can have some kind of reasons on this.

or maybe i should just ask microsoft? where should i go to ask question like this?

okay, just done that, everything is the same

also notice, when click on IE , it goes to desktop version instead of the app version.

1) Uninstall the anti-virus program you have installed on the computer.
2) Create local account and see if the apps work in that account.

actually just went through remote help from MS,
your option 1 is the answer

Antivirus have to be REMOVED, disabling is not good enough
