Thanks again Boggin.
I have made a note of that program, just in case.  Who knows, it may come in handy some time, lol.

There is a detailed fix for the November update bug (which trashes the Store and many apps). It does not require a re-install, but some effort, although the explanation in a nine page article is clear (even for me), with step by step instructions for each app. It does work, I had restored a handful of apps with the author's help when I had to do a re-install, so I no longer need to work through it all. For others who still need it here is the Link:

Good luck!

Many thanks Clayto.  I have made a note of the url. 
I did a complete re-install of Windows 10 and at the moment all seems to be working well. Fingers crossed that I have no more problems.
However, it is always useful to keep these 'pages' handy just in case.   :wink:

Maybe Microsoft has fixed it in the next big update that is to come out this summer and it is free. The just pushed a preview version of it to slow ring for testing. I just hope their is no big problems when it comes out and users have trouble installing the update.

This is quite an old thread and as it should have been locked 30 days after the last post, I'm not sure how you were able to add to it - but you should have created your own thread in the section above this one.

However, as you are here, you can create Win 10 install media after reading the instructions at https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/software-download/windows10

When you have done that, open Windows Explorer - insert the install media and double click on its drive.

This will effect what is known as a repair install which will reinstall Win 10 but won't affect personal stuff or installed programs.

The process will start if using a DVD but will open to its files if using an USB where you would then double click on setup Application.

This takes about 3˝hrs on my Win 10 laptops.

Which version of the program had you used ?

What you experienced has been found to occur when not using the latest version because of the way Microsoft change the Permissions with subsequent updates, so Shane has to keep updating the program to keep pace with those changes in Win 10.
