    Firstly, I am working on a friend/client’s PC, Windows 10 64 bit, fully up to date.

    I had done a reinstall of Windows 10 (using a USB drive) as a means of trying to affect a repair.

    This did not work and I have been through all of your processes, to no avail.

    I am beginning to think that the only way to repair this PC is to do a total re-installation of Windows 10. I have all of the client’s files backed up via Backblaze, so am able to restore them.

    Basically I have the “Store” icon missing totally, as well as having several other with TWINUI as their default (Which I cannot change).
    A possible clue to all of this is that I do have, in the Apps & Features (in settings) things like…


    I have 27 similar entries prior to the first “proper” app entry, Adobe Acrobat Reader DC.

    I would appreciate any suggestions, as I really don’t want to have to do a full clean install if I can avoid it.

    1. Have you tried running DISM command? It can help fix the above issue. You can also try this post:
      But if nothing is working, then I am afraid that you might need to do a clean installation of Windows 10.

    Hello, I tried to install a clean Windows10, an option given by Microsoft. It should remove all old files and programs from the harddisk and automatically install a clean version of Windows 10 on a clean disc. So far so good, first the program removed all files and programs and then started to install a new version of Windows10. But halfway the installing process I was asked in which language the installation should continue. I had the choice of three languages, I should select one and then click the YES-button. But my keyboard and the mouse that were connected to this computer did not work, so I could not confirm my choice and the installation did not continue. What else can I do?

  7. that’s not a solution! is an installation of windows but keeping your files and apps.
