None of my Windows Ten Modern Apps Work.

Q: None of my Windows Ten Modern Apps Work.

Hi, none of my Windows Ten Apps will open, including the windows ten store, xbox, groove music, mail, photos, minecraft windows ten edition, calendar, you get the idea. I'm running version 1511, (OS Build 10586.318). I can't remember when it started, but it's a pain. I've looked up the issue online, but nothing seems to be the EXACT same problem with me. My start button works fine, and the apps don't give me an error message or anything. If someone could fix this I would be SO grateful!

Preferred Solution: None of my Windows Ten Modern Apps Work.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:Modern Windows apps broken.

I find when there is a pending update to the modern windows apps they won't work correctly. Then navigate to store and generally can see an update waiting. It then updates and seems to work fine. I've had it before where photos or calculator flash on screen and then disappear. I then see the updates are lurking. So basically a looming update seems to break functionality until you actually go and update.

I now need Microsoft Store to install the Windows 8.1 update.

Hello all,
We have some workstations running Windows 8 that we would like to get upgraded to 8.1. We originally deployed Windows 8 using a customized image with all the Modern UI apps removed, e.g. Mail, Calendar, People, Maps, News, Food & Drink, Health &
Fitness, Reading List, etc. I've run the upgrade on a test machine using "Setup.exe /auto:upgrade" as documented at https://technet.microsoft.com/en-ca/library/dn744271.aspx and it works; however, all the Modern UI apps are re-installed. 
Is there a way to perform this upgrade without all the apps installing, or, at the very least, not have the icons appear on the user's Start menu?

A:Close 'Modern' Apps Quickly & Completely in Windows 8.1

Nice demo but, can I say that... to be accurate like that requires dexterity and a healthy wrist.

Don't pull it down completely or too slow or hesitate or let go of the button - oops...

Hi I was given these instructions from another forum to show me how to remove unwanted apps from my computer. Problem seems to stem from the fact that I am unable to replicate a certain "caret" into the command, for example: "Get-AppXPackage -User <username> |  Remove-AppxPackage". I highlighted the caret in red that I mean. It says to open Powershell and at then "Type the following command to remove all Modern apps from the system account", but I tried this but because I cannot put in the " | " in the command it only opens another command beginning, for instance:
PS C:\Windows\system32>

In desktop mode of Windows 8 you can use the snipping tool (love that little guy) or Sent to One Note screen capture tool to grab a snapshot of any part of your computer screen. However, neither of these applications work in "Metro" mode. How can I snag a small screen capture in modern UI mode of Windows 8 on my PC? I know on my Surface I can take full screen captures using the Start Button+Volume Down key, but how about on a PC and how about something smaller than the entire screen?

On a PC it is really easy to take a screen shot. Just press the "Prt Scr" button on your keyboard. Then open Paint (or any other image editing software) and press "Ctrl+V". The screen shot will get pasted into the app. And if you want something smaller than the entire screen then just select the portion you want and crop the image.

I am reading everywhere that Windows 8 is not being very successful by now, but the big thing with Windows 8 is Modern UI and the whole new ecosystem of apps, market and interface.

And I still don't know how much are Windows 8 users using all of it.

For instance, I never use Modern UI at all. I never check the app market, never install apps, never use them...

What about you?

My modern apps no longer will run in my windows 8.1 Pro laptop.
The two that I use are Microsoft Solitaire Collection and the Weather app.
I don't want to uninstall and reinstall them (also for the umteenth time), because I DO NOT want to lose my Solitaire collection stats, 500 wins out of 500 plays in Freecell.
What to do!
I know it's just a stupid game, but, still, there should be some way to fix this without having to uninstall and reinstall, again!
Or, if there is a way to preserve the stats in an uninstall/reinstall scenario, that would work for me.  In the past, the stats get reset in an uninstall/reinstall of Microsoft Solitaire Collection.
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

A:My "Modern" Apps have stopped running for the umteenth time in my Windows 8.1 Pro

The answer turns out to be quite simple.  When I added the "Authenticated Users" user in the security tab for my Users folder, and propagated the changes down through the directory tree, any folder that had the ALL APPLICATION PACKAGES (or
some other metro based user account) user got hosed.  (The ALL APPLICATION PACKAGES user got dropped).
This, combined with the fact that, I guess, the metro apps run under some user other than the logged in user or depend on a software component that does the same, AND that when folder access is denied to the metro app, the program just closes with no error
message, created the problem.
I understand that the metro app programmers are just too cool to need to bother with such error popups ...
Once ALL APPLICATION PACKAGES is added, the metro apps start working again!

I don't understand why Microsoft requires UAC to be enabled for me to use any Modern Apps or the App Store. I always turn off UAC and one of the programs I use, Object Rexx from IBM does not run correctly with UAC enabled. I find the UAC prompts intrusive and extremely annoying and as far as I'm concerned UAC is a total waste as after a very short period of time it becomes automatic to click OK without even reading the UAC notice.

Anyone know what the rational for this is? Is there a workaround for it? I'd like to play with some of the Apps but I'm not going to enable UAC to do it.

A:Why does UAC have to be enabled to use any Modern Apps

Hey Rich,

When UAC is disabled, the account basically runs elevated. Modern apps will not run in an elevated account by design for security purposes.

About all you can do is set your UAC settings to the bottom level.

I've posted this on another forum but would like to get opinions from this group as well.

I'm curious. Why would anyone go to the trouble of developing or updating a Windows "modern" app considering the current environment. As I understand it, the current "Universal" app was supposed to bridge the environments between Windows Phone, Windows RT and regular Windows. It appears Windows RT has no future except for a trivial update that will come in October. Also, it appears that Microsoft is not being fully honest when they promise new Lumia phones, but then fired most if not all of the phone development team. Windows 10 appears to have deprecated touch. So what is left? Where do Windows Universal Apps really fit into the grand scheme of things? Is there any particular reason to develop apps in an environment that is so restrictive?

A:Discussion: Are Windows "Modern" Apps of any value?

My observation, from seeing the changes introduced in Win10 from the Insiders program is that MS is obsessed with the Metro UI -- and wants EVERYTHING to take on that look and feel, period. I don't use a Windows phone and don't have a current Windows tablet -- so I have no use for a one-size-fits-all UI experience. That means, I have no real love for the Metro UI.

Plus, MS is clearly choosing looks over features -- when they swapped out a fully functioning IE browser for a half-baked Edge replacement. And now, other app developers are jumping on the same bandwagon with VideoLAN producing a Store version of VLC -- which, folks have said -- (like Edge) does not have the functionality of its "legacy app" counterpart.

MS's end plan is probably to have everyone using apps from their Store -- so they can control the content, and ALSO, so they can charge folks for new apps and for upgrades. They're pushing their subscription model onto their Office products, wouldn't surprise me if they did this on their Store apps, as well.

One of the frequent questions on the Win10 forums is how to uninstall these Store apps -- and from what I've read, it's very difficult (if not impossible) to do. So, folks end up disabling them, instead.

So on my dad's notebook, an ASUS K55N, all of the sudden, all of the Modern UI apps stopped working, every time he clicks on one he gets a message saying "This App Can't Open", and all he did was run Windows Update this morning (he downloaded SP1 for Office, the big Update was installed yesterday, and he could use these Apps with no problem).

So what's going on here? What can be done?

Thanks.

Hello,

I am a developer and also Windows user and curious about some things. From reading this forum, I think the nice knowledgeable people here will be able to help!

Are Modern UI apps truly sandboxed? If so, how will system apps like A/V, Firewalls, and others work from a sandboxed environment?

Can system apps from the Old Desktop scan and check things related to Modern UI apps?

I am trying to find out how much Modern UI apps and Desktop apps can communicate and coexist. Also, when the old desktop apps go away (if it goes away), how Modern UI apps will deal with System Applications.

Modern UI apps seem like WPF apps to me with an XML style interface and code behind with a new framework for the tiles. Is that correct?

Thanks!

Is there a awy to make it so Windows 8.1 does not show any of the Modern Apps in the taskbar?

For instance, I like to keep NotePad8, Weather and some others running, but I don't want them taking up Taskbar realestate since (as far as I'm aware at least), those Modern apps will remain open until I close them for good by moving to the upper left part of the screen.

So, if anyone knows of any methods I could try to do this, I would be all ears! I suspect there's probably something I could do in the registry, and if there is, maybe someone could attach a .reg file for me.

I'm also attaching a screencap of what I'm talking about.

Thanks a lot, everyone!

When I first got Windows 8, I was like a kid in a candy store downloading way too many modern apps. Many of these early modern apps are no longer working. Another side effect is that newly installed modern apps no longer have tiles created on the modern desktop as if these is no more space available.

I want to clean up these obsolete apps en mass. I want them off my machine and off of my list of modern apps attached to my Microsoft-ID so they don't reappear.

I am willing to have ALL of my modern apps removed, and reset to only those that come preinstalled. I am more mature and believe I can use more discretion on modern apps I download moving forward.

A:How can I cleanup my modern apps to only preinstalled?

You could try this, has worked for me. I am not sure if this script will remove third party apps, I have used it to remove some default apps. Anyway, worth a try.

Download the uninstall script from Microsoft TechNet: https://gallery.technet.microsoft.co...-Apps-a00ef4a4Follow the instructions on that page to remove the apps you want to get rid of

Hi all,

I offten play game online, and my network is not fast. So when I playing game, it's usually "lag". I think it is because the modern apps (mail, people, weather...) and other background services auto connect to internet. I can stop or turn off these background services, but I don't know how to turn off or prevent modern apps do that to improve the network speed. So I really need your help.

Hi
I just updated my laptop the other day and I found a black bar appearing on the top of Apps. It's an unwelcome animation. I want to get rid of it after App has finished starting up because it doesn't do anything.
Not only does it not do anything, every time I try to change tabs in a web browser (chrome) I keep hitting the bar bar and it ruins my browsing experience.
I can understand the black bar appearing when an App starts but looks stupid when it doesn't do anything new and interferes with the user experience.
Is there some way to disable it for the likes of apps that use tab browsing as I like to use a mouse to go to the top of the screen to select another tab and not worry about a pop up advertisement type black bar.

Hi there. I'm not in agreement with this bar addition either. I don't use Chrome, but this problem has been reported by other users as well. I have seen no resolution to the problem yet. It's either going to take a Registry hack, MS to give option to turn off, or Google to fix Chrome.

I set up my 8.1 installation, played with all the apps, got used to how M$ wants the future to be...and this morning when I turned my PC on, it said it was installing some updates. No biggie.

Now today I am having a bad time with some of the Apps. Skype for example(though this seems to be a known issue?) loads for about 4 seconds then CTS(CrashToStart). Photos will let me look around for about ten seconds, then CTS. Reading List, CTS soon as it looks loaded.

I have tried re-installing the apps, to no avail. Hopefully someone here can help, or a hotfix will be released, because a refresh would be a sucky option just for it to break again.

I'm more curious about this than anything because I just wasted and hour to figure it out. If I disable the DNS Client Service on Windows 8.1 it seems to break a lot of Modern apps. If it's set to start manually, some Modern apps trigger it to start.

Do Modern apps make queries directly to the DNS Client Service or something weird?

A:What's the deal with Modern apps and DNS Client Service?

Yeah I came across this just now, and was diagnosing the firewall and know the exact cause.

So when dns client is enabled, all dns requests are routed via it, meaning applications do not need specific udp port 53 internet access.
If the dns client is disabled any internet application that wants to do a dns lookup will need outbound udp port 53 traffic allowed.

Now there is some undocumented behaviour going on.

There is hidden WSH Network hardened rules in the windows firewall, these rules are "always" enabled. Regardless of default outbound state in the windows firewall. (allow rules also wont allow the traffic)
So the default windows firewall configuration is to require allow rules for inbound traffic and allow all outbound traffic.
However there is hidden rules that block certain traffic Microsoft decided to block, and it seems wermgr.exe which is used by metro apps, cannot send out dns traffic, the hardened rules block it.

My gut guess is this is a bug that is yet to be fixed. Because the vast majority of people (well over 99%) will have dns client service enabled in its default state.

Interestingly the hidden rules still kick in if you disable the firewall in the advanced UI. The only way to stop the rules is to actually disable the firewall service which is obviously not recommended, meaning the sane choice is either to keep dns client enabled, dont use modern apps or use a 3rd party software firewall in place of the windows firewall.

1. The modern apps having the titlebar which allows us to press close in the corner messes with the Start Taskbar if you have it set to the top of the screen instead of the bottom. When you mouse up to the top with and try to drag the file down as normal to close it using the old mouse behaviour it now brings the Start Taskbar down on-top of it, as though the Start Taskbar is using 'auto-hide', which gets in the way and sticks around for a good while, stopping me from closing the modern app.

2. When I have a modern app pinned to the Taskbar, and open, it will not update it's status. Take Mail app for exampel. The Start Screen tile shows me that I have two emails, but the taskbar pin doesn't have a '2' on it. I've seen pictures online that it's supposed to do this.

I updated from Windows 7 keeping apps and files etc. I had Chrome as the default browser and that basically turned off Modern UI IE, so I made IE the default (and unchecked the use desktop browser to open links) but it still won't open any links.

The little hand over the link just does nothing when I click it.

This is pretty frustrating as it makes my entire start screen sort of "dumb".

I tried using fiddler, turning off my antivirus (trendmicro security), refreshed (which was a pain because i had to install all my stuff again). nothing seems too work. any suggestions?

HOW did you get Skype to work!?!?

When I open the app it says it needs to be updated. So, I click it to update and it will either say pending forever or say downloading with only a tiny bit of green and won't move for HOURS. Did your Skype just automatically work!?

I was wondering if there was *some* way to launch Modern apps with the "Microsoft Mouse And Keyboard Center", or whether there's a Modern version of "Microsoft Mouse And Keyboard Center" in the works.

Is there some sort of command or something that can be put into the "Open a program, webpage, or file" field?

If nothing else, is there a program that can be launched that can automatically launch a metro app?

Thanks.

A:Launching Modern apps with "Microsoft Mouse And Keyboard Center"....

I was wondering if there was *some* way to launch Modern apps with the "Microsoft Mouse And Keyboard Center"



The only method that I have seen is using macros.  E.g. find the minimal, most reliable method of using the Start Screen to do whatever it is that you want to do via the keyboard, then express that sequence by a macro and assign it to an "unused"
function key.

Hi,

The most strange thing is that all those apps has some strange strings appended in front of the original app names. By clicking those apps, they me to no where. For example, searching "Store" on the startup, the screen snapshot is shown below:
The other snapshot is below, where the red brick on the left corner should be the App Store tile. Applications not installed through the app store like OneNote still work.

I ran a basic trouble shoot through Microsoft and it came up at one point saying I need a Microsoft account. which is crazy because I've put in my CD key like 50 times and registered it when I put the OS on this computer.

A:Windows 8 metro apps do not work

This is the sort of issue that makes IT departments go absolutely crazy, and why most avoid new versions of Windows until the first Service Pack appears.

Since its such a mind-boggling oversight on Microsoft's part, I thought I'd take a look around, and see what fellow sufferer's of the issue had come up with. You've already covered quite a few of the strategies, but here are a couple more that some users have come up with.
_______________

Enable the Windows Update Service
It appears that the Windows Store and possibly other Metro apps rely on a network component of the Windows Update Service. For some users, enabling this service fixes the trouble with Metro apps not opening. For domain accounts, to make the fix stick, the policy would probably have to be altered to allow the service to run (as it is commonly disabled).

Clear the store cache
a) Press "Windows key + R"
b) Type " wsreset.exe" and click OK

Proxy issues:
---1--- A windows internal HTTP service might not be using the proxy settings defined in IE. Running the following command changes the service to use the IE proxy settings. For some users, this has then enabled the Windows Store to work.

Open a command prompt with 'Run as Administrator' and type:
netsh
winhttp
import proxy source=ie
Now go back to the store and try it and see if that fixed your issue.

---2---Or: Disable Proxy connection if enabled
(use this only if your network setup does not require a proxy)
a)Press ?Windows + W? and type ?Internet Options? and press enter.
b)Click on ?Connections? tab.
c)Click on ?LAN settings?.
d)Uncheck ?Use a proxy server for your LAN?.
e)Under ?Automatic Configuration? select ?Automatically detect settings?.
f)Click on ?Ok? and click on ?Apply? and ?Ok? again.

HyperV
I saved this weirdest of solutions for last. I have no idea why simply enabling the HyperV feature in the computers Bios (if available there), and adding the feature in "Programs & Features" in the Control Panel (under turn Windows features on and off), should make Metro apps work. But some users (at least in a couple of threads) have reported:

Quote:




Adding Hyper-V feature to the computer fixed the issue. I can now access store and add also interact with Modern (Metro) apps.




How crazy is that! They didn't add any virtual machines, they just enabled the feature. I'm going to keep an eye out for more information, in case a reasonable explanation appears (and I'll post it here).

Best of luck

What were you doing before all of this happened? What kind of third party Security software are you using ? Have you tried the Dism fix yet.

You will find that very few people even use the packaged apps from Microsoft, because they were not very well thought out to begin with and can be broken by just simple changes on the OS install.

My keyboard does not work within Windows Store and it's Apps. I cannot type anything in the search of the store, or within the Xbox App. I can right click and paste in information and click "Go" and that works just fine. But just no keyboard input works. Keyboard works fine everywhere else.

I've googled the issue and I can't find ANY other people have this issue. I think it might be related to when I completely removed Cortana and SearchUI, but I am not sure.

If I select Apps & Features under the system menu on Windows 10 I get the scrolling dots at the top of the window but no apps ever get listed, and eventually the window seems to time out and close itself. All of the other system menu options work fine and add/remove programs which I believe from reading around is linked into Apps & Features operates correctly.
I have run all the usual standard potential fixes like sfc /scannow and even utliised the Winfix for windows app on this very website, and nothing has been reported as being an issue. I tried re-imaging back to an early saved image of mine and the first time I clicked on Apps & Features it came up correctly but any subsequent selection went back to the same issue. I have literally tried everything and have so far come up blank (just like the menu option)!
Any thoughts?

I have been facing this issue from the day one since I installed Windows 10 on my laptop (Dell XPS L502x).

Native Windows Applications like all browsers, office products etc. anything that is not from the Store, works fine. I can use Touch Pad scrolling with no trouble. e.g. on Internet Explorer, Chrome, MS Word, etc.

But the apps that come out of store or the apps like those which come pre-built with Windows 10 such as new Settings UI, Microsoft Edge. Touch Pad scrolling just don't work with these apps. When I perform scrolling the scroll-icon appears but doesn't scroll the content.

This issue is only with Touch Pad. External Mouse works great with scrolling on any kind of app.

Hope to find a solution here.
Thanks

PS: drivers are all good on the machine and up to date with no warning or error.

Similar problem only I could not get Windows installed apps to open properly. I have a Lenovo G560 with a Dynadock plugged into a USB port and two additional monitors connected to the laptop (one directly and one through the Dynadock. In anticipation of installing Win 10, I upgrade my RAM and replaced my hdd with an SSD drive. I am upgrading from Windows 7 SP1 Home Premium. I did the upgrade and not a clean install. The upgrade seemed to go just fine. The first thing I noticed was and Notices icon so I clicked on it and some notices appeared. I tried to click on those but as soon as I moved the mouse off of the notices icon the list disappeared. The same thing happened when I went to Start. I rebooted the computer and the above problems went away. So I began exploring around the Start Menu. I got cortana to recognize Hey Cortana and she even told me a joke. When I asked her to play Rock Paper Scissors, she started having problems. Again I rebooted, and she could tell a joke but no RPS. Then I asked her to open MS Edge but that did not work. Tried myself by clicking on the E icon and I got an error message saying it could not find Internet Explorer.exe. Went to Start Menu and tried to start Edge. It looked like it was going to but nothing appeared. I went to Task Manager and there it was running so I ended the process and tried again. No joy. Again reboot. First thing was to open Edge from Start Menu. That worked-- it opened. Tried to go to settings in the Start Menu but it acted like Edge above. It was running in Task Manager but not visible to me. Chrome, Lync, Word, Outlook, all worked. Cortana worked but when I tried other apps like Calculator, they did not work. My keyboard has a calculator launch button and that did not work either. I did notice that the apps that appeared not to work actually were running but closing them in Task Manager did not help. I could get the app to work if I rebooted and clicked on the app first before anything else. After about 2 hours of rebooting only to not have apps work and not really able to see what Win 10 could do, I restored Windows 7.

Hi,

I am using the SDLC Threat Modelling tool 2016 by Microsoft on a Windows 10 virtual Box 32-bit.

When I am trying to generate a final report, it discards all the different risk ratings for each threat, and instead of having the respective high, medium, low levels next to each threat, it produces a html report putting only high next to each
one of them.

Any help?

Hello guys, i got a BSOD, got it many times in a row, i think it's my ATI drivers, but i'm not sure, could you check it and tell me how to fix?

It's just restarting after a while of playing, after that it's turning on telling me that windows recovered from an unexpected shutdown, after it dumped all of the memory i can't turn it on for like 10 minutes, if i try to turn it on then it imediately turns off again. After waiting ~10 minutes it can be turned on again.

I was given a Windows 8.1 tablet that once had a detachable keyboard which the guy lost. he reset the whole computer and after I got my information on it instead. After the reset, Windows was no longer activated and I had to reactivate it. which neither of us knows why, it was activated before we did a data factory reset. after I created my user, I installed a bunch of exes. now I go to try to see if I could test out the Windows Store to search for apps. but I search "Windows Store" or "app store" and several other things that may bring it up, but it always says, "no apps match your search" like if the Windows store is missing or somehow magically removed with the reset process. How do I get it back?

There's an OEM for it for $100 on eBay. (AUD, 72.91 USD) I don't have a paid OS yet (Win10 IP, planning on Linux Mint) I'd like a retail copy of 7 at some point, so I've always got a transferable licence for future systems.
 
Basically the plan is to have Windows 7 retail dual-booting with XP x64.
 
But I don't want to waste $100 on XP64 if it's not any good. I love XP, and to be able to use it with a 64-bit CPU and 8 GB RAM is enough to make me want to buy this. I'm just not sure if there will be any major problems with the OS that make it no better than the 32-bit version. (I know of the little glitches already)
 
So basically, is XP64 worth buying at $100?

A:Windows XP x64 on modern PC

IMO XP is not worth $100 plus it is no longer supported by MS so no updates leaving it vulnerable, I would move to 7 which has support until 2020.  That will give you time to think out your next step, 7 can be bought for about the same $$.

I never tried sysprepping 10 but i have faced similar issues with 8.1. Turned out that you need to save the default app associations to an XML file using DISM (before Generalizing the image ) and later import it.

Export or Import Default Application Associations

Configure, export, import App File Associations in Windows 8.1

I have used "Setupcomplete.cmd" to auto import the app associations during the last face of install.

Add a Custom Script to Windows Setup
You may also need to disable the new app notification before generalizing the image.

In Windows Microsoft has prohibited the user to log on straight to the Windows Desktop through a system licensing policy Due to this policy you always have to start with the Modern UI If you re a power-user or you just want choice you should be able to boot your system straight to the desktop I m not against the Modern UI and I have no problem with the start screen but I m pretty sure I and many others don t need it Modern Bypass 8 Windows UI right from the beginning of a session It is also Windows 8 Bypass Modern UI annoying to use Windows 8 Bypass Modern UI some of the current solutions out there as all they do is skip this screen on every sign-in but this results in showing the start screen for a split second which can be a very jarring experience for the user After a lot of work and research I finally think I found a native way and maybe the cleanest solution to bypass Modern UI during sign-in Therefore I wrote an application to skip this behavior Modern UI is not disabled It all works only the sign-in behavior is affected Source A Guy

"Modern UI"? Is that what they're calling it now? LOL. It's actually the "Atavistic UI", because its full-screen, modal program launcher is reminiscent of running Hotwire on my Atari ST circa 1988, except Hotwire didn't have anything as stupid as Windows 8's "4 Corners". And while I haven't read the article, bypassing the login to the "Modern UI" doesn't mean you never have to work with it. After installing programs, to pin programs to the taskbar, I would have to use the "Modern UI" or open the Start menu folders, which Microsoft has made hard to get to as a side-effect of getting rid of the Start Menu and its menu with "Open" and "Open All Users" commands for the "All Programs" menu item. My advice for people who recognize the ridiculousness of the "Modern UI" is to stick with Windows 7. Why spend money on a non-upgrade and then have to run various hacks to get it to a usable state? And then spend even more money to get Windows Media Center back, a part of Windows essential to anyone using CableCard, a part that hasn't even seen bug fixes much less improvements? Just because they're not thinking doesn't mean you have to stop.

If I click on them, it show the corrispondent icon and after 3-4 seconds the app crash and I return on desktop. Same thing if I try to use the search function. I also noticed that inserting removable media (usb, hard disk etc) can not navigate inside (always crash), and if I go on Download folder, If I scroll down, crash and back to the desktop. All of this happened in a few days, before everything was fine. I didn't install strange application nor any other antivirus. What happened?

A:Get Modern Browsers for Windows XP. Update

Firefox 46 works fine on my XP system. I have my "era appropriate" Lexmark Z816 Printer connected to that system. If the browser can't print it is probably better to copy paste to a word document and print that way, which is better in general since you can print only specifically what you want. On an older system that is no longer receiving security updates it is likely a good idea to keep the browser as up to date as possible.
