    Well, my store isn't opening. After starting the store is freezing on loading circle and nothing happening. I've tried three or four tricks to fix the problem and it's still not working. Well the problem with the store didn't come after update 1. To refresh or reinstall my windows isn't an option. What I tried:

    1: Repair Corrupt Windows Files
    - sfc /scannow

    2. Some different way to fix windows files
    - dism /online /cleanup-image /checkhealth
    - dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
    - sfc /scannow

    3. Repair Windows Store
    - "Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppModel\Repository\Packages"
    -Right click -> Packages key -> set Permissions
    - Advanced -> Owner -> change to System

    4. fixing store
    - "powershell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $Env:SystemRoot\WinStore\AppxManifest.xml" in cmd

    5. Clean Windows Store Cache
    - wsreset.exe

    And that's what I've tried. But these things didn't help. If I create a new account the store is working, can somehow copy from the new account store app files to my account. I don't want to use a new account because of used settings, options, programs, paths and blabla. Everything else is working well, like apps and etc, only the store is broken.

    If you know how to fix it, I will be very greateful and happy :p

    Just installed Update 1. Store works for me. (Not signed in, haven't used a MS account in this VM install)

    Could try removing and recovering your account.

    What if you make a new local account as administrator, log in with that account, remove the stuffed account without deleteing your files & then re-create it.
    Maybe you can rename it instead of deleting it. I have never needed to do this but that's what I'd try.
    There's also the disabled administrator account you can enable. "net user administrator /active" from admin command prompt...
