    i upgraded to win 8.1 from the store on my 3 computers,they are all legitimate installations of pro,and now the store app crashes on 2 of my computers,i can see the live tile working,but when i click it opens and just goes away,but i can still see it up on the left side with running apps as if it's open,but every time i click it just goes away,have tried the apps fix and the accounts fix,it says it can't verify my account and to go to store and sync and verify,but i can't get into store to do that,i've signed in with microsoft account and local account,the computer that store is working on is a local account,this is driving me nuts,i hope someone can help me,please.

    heard about that issue and was solved with updating graphic driver which was outdated for 8.1. They used the generic Windows driver first, had the problem and then they installed latest driver from manufacturer and all went fine

    i just created a new account on my laptop and now the store app works,but it didn't save my files and programs,i can get away with it on my laptop,but geez my desktop has the boys games some 11g that have to be downloaded from steam,and that computer has the latest nvidia driver,so it's seems it's something to do with the account,is their away to reset the account tied to the computer without losing all my programs?

    Please run the following in a Command Window to re-register the Store app:
    powershell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $Env:SystemRoot\WinStore\AppxManifest.xml

    edit: if you encounter some apps not to respond after that procedure you should uninstall them and reinstall. Then they work properly
