Preferred Solution: why jio apps not available in my lumia 640xl lte

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.)

Hi and welcome to windows central forum.
Jio apps are not available on windows phone yet. You could activate the sim on a separate device and then switch your device and use the jio card in 640xl.

Hi guys - this is a weird problem that I ve always had since building this computer or years ago and I don t think the drive was new when I built it so it went from totally normal in my xp machine to doing this weird thing when I put it in a new system with Win I ve searched and not been able to find anyone with the same problem It normally occurs when listening to music or watching a film and it only happens very occasionally when you go to skip to to a new song or skip to a different place in the video It s never been a Some then HD until whirs clicks apps unresponsive major problem and in fact I think it s only done it once this week so aside from googling it a couple of times never actually got very far with fixing it So in winamp for example just after opening it I ll click next song winamp installation and music are on different hard drives as are VLC and movies and it ll freeze Then the disk will make a whir and about seconds later there will be a click and everything will come Some apps unresponsive until HD whirs then clicks back to life During this time I can move my mouse and do other things on the computer Like I said it s always done this and it s never got any worse or anything so I don t think it s a faulty drive but I ll post this in the HD section too just to see if any experts there can shed any light on it Thanks for your help nbsp

A:Some apps unresponsive until HD whirs then clicks

Look at your power profile settings. Likely the HD is being powered off after xx minutes.

Previously used this phone with Zune on my now-deceased PC with Windows XP (although even that took a while to establish). Now have an HP laptop with Windows 7 but Zune consistently refuses to recognize it and just comes up with the usual 'disconnect, turn off and reconnect'. I have downloaded both Microsoft Fixes and neither of them find anything wrong; I have uninstalled/reinstalled countless times; I have been into my certificates and made changes and/or deletions - and I m now simply running out of options ...and patience if I'm honest.

Almost all the internet advice suggests the fix is easy. Would the fact I've worked on this for over a month now suggest I am a one-off?!!!

A Google search revealed that there are many people who have had the same problem still unresolved after two years or so - just as often with other Windows Phones rather than Nokia. Can anyone help please?

Before I get to the poll a little history is in order I got my first droid retiring my GS moved to iOS from WinMO few years ago But I think it is the most 920 or ATIV Lumia S regrettable of decisions I made Because despite the fact that I always went for the higher end droid at least of its time e g Desire SGS SGSII Sensation SGSIII to name few I never found a stable solidly performing android phone They all suffered from random crashes reboots sluggishness hang ups and I only install apps - I need nothing more They all have various annoying quirks as well e g SGS ATIV S or Lumia 920 III doesn t want to find any WiFi network at times folders on home screen will randomly open at ATIV S or Lumia 920 their own my older Sensation s screen would stop responding quot in some places quot etc IMHO almost all droids I owned had great hardware but a crappy OS Few months ago I got my hands on Lumia and used it along side my Sensation SGS III for months and my views about WP totally changed It easily outperforms all those multi-core droids with its dated single core SoC being absolutely rock solid and very easy to use UI unlike androids copycat of iOS It is time again to jump ship only thing to decide is should I get ATIV S or Lumia though I m tilting toward the later due to better support upgrade cycle of Nokia compared to Samsung However SuperAMOLED display of ATIV S will be more battery friendly and it also have expansion slot ATIV S comparison Lumia specs Specs of HTC X amp Accord rumored Lumia along side Samsung ATIV S So what you guys would pick nbsp

A:ATIV S or Lumia 920

I'm firmly set on the Lumia 920 right now. I've always had a thing for Nokia handsets, and until Android hit the scene I only ever owned them. Plus, I don't think I'll miss the lack of storage expansion (my SGS3 has 16GB now and I'm only using 1GB of it!), and I think Nokia will be quicker and more supportive with its own apps than Samsung will be.

A:Acer Laptop is corrupted and opens multiple apps and more

UNless someone else has a better idea, how old is this computer & is it still under warranty? If so, I'd get a hold of the where you bought it & get it checked out. IF you don't & have "other" work done on it, it could VOID the warranty.

I've got a iPod Touch 16 GB and want to fill out the memory a little with some game apps I can play during sitting in the bus.

I'm searching for a good racing game and it would be okay to pay if it's worth it - but their so many to choose between. Any tips of good racing game apps ( with many maps, choose car...) ?

Which free game app is your favorite? My favorite free game right now would be "Rat on run" by Donuts Games.

my current system is:

AMD dual core 6400+ Processor
e-GeForce 8800 GT Video Card
4 gigs of ram
I have a MSI motherboard but I can't remember exactly what it is.

I currently have 2 moniters hooked up to this computer and plan on running a total of 20 applicatons on it. It works fine when I am running the first 10 applications but as soon as I start putting up more applications on my 2nd moniter the screen starts to flicker. The flickering gets so bad that I can't see the mouse and phantom applications appear when they arn't really there. I have tried replacing ram/video card/processor out of a computer that I know works and I can't get anything to fix this problem. If anyone knows what I might try next please let me know.

Thanks in advance,

Bryan

Hello again everyone I have a computer that SHOULD be running amazingly well and it does for the most part I really have NOTHING on here it is a Dell customized PC only running processes regularly Here are the specs Dell Dimension DIM Pentium CPU GhZ GB RAM Windows XP Home Edition So everything runs fine I have a wireless Linksys router which I JUST upgraded to the latest firmwire and everything brand new speakers an external MyBook GB USB Hard Drive which holds my music Everything in consistent and midi-apps... Awful noises music crackling/popping was running great but my music pops and crackles id say about every seconds I also use a Midi Controller Keyboard Keystation es by M-Audio I play the M-Tron software and it crackles louder than hell when going on a note for longer than seconds It is all in and out on and off I have no idea what could be causing it people have told me it is the CPU and the computer is struggling but it just does not make sense I am barely running anything on here my processes are all normal and everything the Linksys wireless was a hog Awful crackling/popping noises consistent in music and midi-apps... for a while but the firmwire fixed it up a lot Does anyone have any ideas or can help me Also all of the midi keyboard software is Awful crackling/popping noises consistent in music and midi-apps... detached from the external HD the external HD is JUST music so it has no connection to the popping and crackling of the M-Tron software with the keystation es Thank you for any help anyone can give nbsp

A:Awful crackling/popping noises consistent in music and midi-apps...

Update:

I have tested old speakers with the OLD audio card, which is still installed above my new Audiphile one. Old speakers work PERFECTLY, so it is NOT the CPU or PC. It is either the SPEAKERS or the AUDIOPHILE sound card. How do I find out? I have no other speakers that connect to the Audiophile card, and I have no other PC with a card that can test the speakers.

Anyone have an educated decision? A popping noise every 10 seconds or so, on and off, sometimes never happens...audiocard most likely, right? The speakers were bought brand new, M-Audio Studio Pro 3's. They seem just fine.

Any ideas?

I can't find that thread so I'm asking if that or similiar happens with other programs such as Avast,CCleaner, M-bam & so on? If so, I think it might be best to use revo to uninstall & reinstall, is that true? I'm only asking because my Vista laptop has slowed a bit & I'm thinking I could speed it up a bit by doing such.

Sounds like windows is corrupted from the unexpected shutdown. Try a system restore from a early time. See if this fixes your problem. If not you have to do a factory reinstall .

Hello,

Is there any other free apps around that can prevent users from installing all kinds of software, pretty much like Deep Freeze. See I'm running a small internet cafe business, and I hate it when people install all kinds of third-party apps (e.g Yontoo). Kids are regulars here in my cafe and some have no idea what they're doing with the system.

I don't want to use Deep Freeze. I want something simple to use and with much flexibility.

Thanks.
 

A:Free apps to prevent installation

What version of Windows? Win/7 takes care of this by forcing use of the admin/password & the UAC feature.

Hi, I would like to as if there are any possibilities on removing a password protected apps, most likely these programs are those who restricts or blocks certain sites which is really annoying. To be specific, its escan. I tried removing or uninstall the said program but it requires me to provide a password. Now, can someone help me on how to overcome this issue.
 

A:Uninstall password protected apps

You can always boot into safe mode and simply delete it, likely from C:\program files\escan, but thats just a guess.

Dump files (DMP) attached.

I get a BSOD while doing pretty much anything graphics intensive... Before my most recent fresh install of Windows 7, it used to happen while playing games (occasionally while playing StarCraft II or Half-Life 2: Episode 2) but it now is starting to occur (after the fresh install) more frequently and has spread to programs like After Effects. I started to get graphics glitches while rendering a composition (which spread to other programs like Firefox) followed by a BSOD listing the cdd.dll file to blame.

My event viewer states that there have been 3 BSOD's since I've reformatted all linked to a "Kernel-Power" error. I have no idea what this is.

I am hoping this is not a hardware issue, as I don't have the money to replace my video card on a yearly basis.

I like Windows 10 so far, it looks promising.
Simple little things like this and Solitare go a long way to sell a product, silly as it may seem to some.

Microsoft is blending in instead of forcing their way and honestly, anything different would be disastrous at this point and they know it. From a networking and backbone/infrastructure standpoint they still have the best hand but on a user level (well them and Linux), its time for change and this is a good start.
As first when I read this article and saw it was only free for the first year I was a little disappointed, but I am over that now.
The question is, if someone upgrades for free and decides not to purchase Windows 10, what will still work and what will not? Can they just back down to W7/W8 or will a reformat/re-image be required? How will that all play out?

Hello,

Computer worked fine with Win8.1 until my antivirus self-disabled and a very high CPU/Mem/Disk usage episode occured last night. Following that, it became impossible to run Firefox and Chrome, they keep crashing. IE works for very brief periods, then crashes too. Tried MBAM twice but it refuses to complete and hangs up at some time. DDS will not run and gives out a 'compatibility mode' issue. Tried uninstalling / reinstalling firefox to no avail. After further tests, every kind of app seem to crash on startup or after a little while, including notepad... However windows boots fine.

The kind of crash is weird. ctrl alt delete seems to hang up too. I have to reboot or must be very patient.

I suspect malware because computer is recent and worked A1 til last night and everything was so sudden.

Sorry I cannot post the requested logs.

Thanks for your time.

All I have tried is restarting the computer, shutting it down and turning it off for 10 minutes. I have no idea what to do. I also managed to open cmd and try to run sfc /scannow but it said "Windows Resource Protection could not start the repair service"

I cant think of anything that changed between last night and today, I havnt downloaded anything... Please give me some advice!

I have windows installed on a SSD which is the C drive. I have all my apps and games installed on a HD which is the E drive. I started the windows 10 install and it said it could not save my apps and settings. I just re-installed because I got the SSD and I would hate to have to go through all of that again, not to mention hundreds of GB of game install on steam.

Is there an app that can backup the windows portion of the apps, and not the data files themselves?

Thank you for your help.

A:Back up system that spreads multiple drives? SSD for win - HD for apps

"Backup" can mean different things to different people.

It might mean simply copying certain folders and their contents with the mouse or keyboard. In that sense, you can backup whatever you want, without any application. File by file, folder by folder. There are applications that can do this in an automated fashion.

But typically, "backup" means everything on a partition (by "imaging") and there may be multiple partitions on a drive--including hidden files, Windows if it's on the partition, installed apps, installed games, and pictures of your cat. In this case, you can't pick and choose what you want to back up within a given partition. It's all or none, partition by partition. The usual suspects include Macrium, Aomei, Acronis, Paragon, and EaseUS.

Going from memory---I think certain (advanced?) versions of certain imaging applications at least claim to allow you to select what you want to include or exclude when cloning and also possibly when making an image file. I'm not at all sure how well this works in practice.

All I can suggest is that you pound Google or the web sites of the major backup application suppliers: Macrium, Aomei, Paragon, Acronis, EaseUS, etc. Drill into their capabilities and then hope you can find someone who has actually tried to use that functionality. Possibly wonderful. Possibly hopeless.

To make it work I've uninstalled KB3045999, KB3022345 & KB3068708

It worked perfectly till today but unfortunately after a windows update the annoying window "The application was unable to load a required virtual machine component...." has appeared again.

Any idea of which update could conflict again with portable apps ?

Thanks

Good afternoon -

Whenever I try to open Microsoft Security Essentials the GUI briefly appears but then immediately closes, and the system tray icon disappears. If I try to reopen it the same thing happens. If I right click and choose Run As Administrator it opens and stays open. I am running MalwareBytes but have no other AV software running or installed (nor has there ever been). I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling MSE with the same results. I've done full scans with MBAM and MSE and no issues were found.

I tried using Avast instead... hated all the pop-ups... please help me get MSE back. Thank you!

A:can anyone offer a suggestion for a better program to minimize apps

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
Have you tried this,
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2483120

Personally it sounds like a corrupt user account
Have you tested by creating a new admin account and using it to see if there's any difference ?

I just got a new iPod.

I downloaded apps yesterday, then synced to iTunes today. The apps I downloaded yesterday no longer work...

Also, from in iTunes on my laptop, I can see my music library on my iPod. I try to, but am unable to, delete songs.

Suggestions?

Thanks
 

A:new iPod - old apps won't work, cant delete music

Did you have an old iPod synced with iTunes on that computer?
You downloaded apps where? In iTunes? Or on the iPod?
Was the sync today the first sync with the new iPod on that computer?
Did the sync complete or give you errors?
What does "no longer work" mean? You get an error? They're missing? They won't sync?
You're trying to delete songs how? If in iTunes, you delete them from the library and then sync. You can't delete music directly from the iPod in iTunes. If you don't want to delete the music from your iTunes library, then you need to change your sync options to not sync all music and then manually select which songs, artists, albums, or playlists you do want to sync.

Hi, I was hoping someone can answer why this happens. When I type in a forum sometimes or something else i enter some text and all of a sudden the calculator will pop up even though i did not ask for that to happen.

Another example as I was typing in this thread, the start, all programs with docs, pics music..etc pops up. Why does this happen and how?

Is there a way to prevent it? Is this a shortcut issue where you type in a few combination of things and they just open on there own?

Have an odd problem - My metro apps do not start from the start menu immediately ! This started a couple of weeks ago when they would not start at all . Reading up on the problem I opened a second user account with admin privs - this account works well and ALL the time. My account however only starts working after I have been logged on for a couple of hours - the event viewer gives errors 2486 and 5973. Without doing anything special and not opening any applications between not working and working it will suddenly start working ! Any ideas?

Okay, I need to explain. 
 
Windows 10 has to name their programs, "apps" and this complete annoyance. They have been naming their program list, programs since forever and not "applications" until Windows 10. (I am not sure about Windows 8.1) 
 
Why?
 
Why can't they just call it Program Files? Why do they have to call it Apps "applications". 
 
EXPLAIN 

A:Apps or Programs

The term app should not scare one off, I have been using it for years even before apples "theres an app for that" iphone campaign.
It seems to have its roots in unix, Apple mostly bases their OS's on unix as does linux (where i get the term from)
And truth be told windows has been going this route for a long time using unix like directories and terms.
The NT file directory layout is very similar to ones you find in the unix world, especially in windows 7 (not so much in XP mind you) so its obvious Microsoft is taking notes.

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?

For business or pleasure just found great other programs/apps Three these and man they Three great other programs/apps will help me get my work done now ZTREEWIN or here -- remember that great 'explorer' for files Xtree Gold I lived on it with my DOS machines and now there is a version for Windows Compatible through this little baby is the best file manager ever Takes awhile to learn has a DOS interface but you can use your mouse instead wonderfully FAST versus the moribund and useless post-XP Windows File Three great other programs/apps Explorer Well the latter has its place too but in Win it's a nightmare Cost is per machine well worth it considering how much TIME it saves Discount of nearly and higher if you purchase five or more And once you see how great it is you'll want one on every machine I wish they had a version for Linux which has the worst file managers ever invented I want to marry this program It's saved my bacon on my DOS machines so many times and is the fastest way to specify files for copy or backup and much much more Downside is that you've so many options it will take a good month to learn how to use it But the site gives you lots of help has a great README you'll want to append as a sticky note to your computer If you remember the program it still operates the same way except now you can use your mouse Well you could in the old version too but this version is much more precise ZTREE's biggest asset imo is its ability to mass copy move display and to find things using the old DOS technique of and As you may know in Windows your luck using those wildcards is spotty at best In Win et seq you have to index the files or put them in Libraries to enable any decent search Putting partitions that are not the C drive in Libraries can trash your Win machine if something happens to that partition am going through that problem now see my post on Cloning and partitions Back to ZTREE It has versions going all the way back to Win so I need that one too Comes in three flavors Win - NT through Win and then something for OS and eComStation Will be doing a video on it in my PC World Alumni forum sometime later Next app for XP or prior users Dema Virtual Notes which comes in different languages you can change on the fly after installation One of the many nice features in Win and yes there are nice features in is the ability to make sticky notes This program does them one better but I'm not sure it will operate well in it seems designed for Vista backward Finally Lazarus an add-on for Firefox Search on it in your browser and install it that way It saves what you type in forms so if some glitch at a forum or website or your fingers suddenly takes you out of the form before you saved hit Enter -- you can retrieve what you typed As you may have learned some input boxes won't let you copy or paste so you can't do the normal fallback of first composing in Notepad and then pasting This is true of US Government forms and frankly within the next two-three years every American will have to do his forms online or hire someone to do it for him For a price naturlich Analogous to the venerable DOS Linux type buffer this program 'remembers' your keystrokes Once you've installed it you can't see it Yet as you'll see if you right-click while in an input box you now have two context-menu options 'retrieve text' or 'retrieve form' like my initial post of this topic pre-editing You can't see that 'retrieve text' feature UNLESS in an input box But it's better than nothing For those of us who have to do hundreds of tax returns online with the US Government this is a godsend But then again don't you type in forums magazine comments etc -- so a godsend for you too Hope these little puppies make your day as you have made mine

A:Three great other programs/apps

BEST ZTree Win INSTALLATION TIP:  When prompted for the installation location, pick a usb stick.  That way you can use it anywhere.  If you're a member of this forum, you probably are inundated with folks wanting help on their computer stuff.  Like me, you have folks around you who can barely SPELL 'computer'.  Sooner or later, you'll need to visit them or they will send you a machine to 'look at'.  Yeah, and that's when this puppy becomes valuable.  For it leaves no footprint.  You can create bookmarks or shortcuts too, so the NEXT time Joe needs help with some adware he downloaded, you've got your shortcuts saved in the 'JoeProblems' file, not on his machine. 
 
I'm guessing that as a result, it can be run from Linux.  Which a Linux user desperately needs, for the search function in Linux isn't that good, either.  (At least, my experience has not been good when searching with wildcards.)  Moreover, this puppy has a 'global' function like old Dos, where you can search on say, all files starting with 'de' and then hit 'g' for 'global', and just those files are ALL displayed.  If instead you typed nothing as the search ('filespec'), then you get EVERYTHING on that drive, which you can choose to sort alpha, numeric, per folder or without (you can detach the path so just show results globally on the filespec).
 
You do have to 'log' the drives you want first, but since the program is only limited by your RAM, you could conceivably log (kinda like 'mount') all the attached drives and then do 'global' and see ALL the files (or just those of your 'filespec') at once. Sort them with or without path, by name, date, etc.  You can't do that, in Windows GUI.  Well, not anymore.
 
So hassle with indexing, the ribbon, or a million other problems with Windows Explorer.
 
It takes up 443 MB, installed.  Handy tool to put on some bootable stick.
 
A friend at PC World suggested this program to me some years back, and like a dufus I forgot, though I've used the DOS version of the program for years.  So much time lost.  Shutting up now, sounding preachy.

We
distribute four shortcuts via GPO
in %AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs.
They all start the same program, but from a
different folder. The problem is that, since
Windows 8 tiles, if you look in
Start menu, all applications,
you only see one shortcut and not four.
If I copy the .exe three times
and each shortcut so that each shortcut
uses a different .exe I see four
shortcuts. What should I do to get
four shortcuts, but with the
same folder/file?

ps.: this issue is in Windows 8, 8.1 and 10

I've had a look at your Speccy report and nothing jumps up and hits me. Do you think you could download and run Farbar's MiniToolBox. It's a free download from BC -
 
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/minitoolbox/
 
When you download it, save it to your desktop and just run it. It doesn't install and you can delete it when you are finished with it if you want to.

Select the buttons as shown in the image. It will produce a report in .TXT format, just copy and paste it into your next post.
 
One possibility is that you may have a lot of temporary files slowing down your system. I can recommend Piriform's Ccleaner, also a free download from BC -

Just one word of warning here, one part of Ccleaner is a 'registry cleaner' - do NOT use this tool, but it is very good at getting rid of temporary files.

Even after a clean re-install of Windows this problem has returned: first I could not install apps from the Store, then the Store itself would not open.
 
Without success I have tried
 
running the Store Trouble Shooter --- it reports such things as Store configuration may be damaged, cache may be corrupted but it cannot repair them
 
running SFC/SCANNOW which did not find any errors in the Registry
 
There is another CMD scan & fix which may restore the system to health if it finds a problem ---- I cannot remember it now (I thought the problem was finished with!)

I have a Surface pro 3 that a user bought and each app has a little X in the corner and I'm unable to open any app. Now there are 2 accounts on this Surface 1 is the default Administrator account the other is a admin account labeled "IT". All apps work under IT but not Administrator. 
 
Now this is while the tablet is off the domain. Soon as we put it on their domain and they login with a domain admin account the apps are unable to open including the Windows App store.
 
I'm not sure what to do at this point. Any tips would be appreciated. 

A:Apps on Surface pro 3 showing an X on each app

I have the exact problem. It seems as though any accounts except the initial local account can access the apps w/o a problem. I created another local account after the problem started and same X on the apps.  It started on SEVERAL Surfaces 3 on April 9.
 
After a recycle to factory defaults, the initial local account created before any updates works fine. Domain accounts logging on the Surface 3 before any Windows updates work fine.
 
I installed all the latest updates which is taking forever to see if it will affect new/existing domain accounts. IT DID!!!
 
Any new account local or domain after updates now has an X...
 
Also, now the Settings/Change PC Settings just flashes and does not do anything on any accounts (unable to reset to factory defaults). It was fine before the zigabytes worth of updates.

I would recommend doing a "Refresh PC" on this laptop. You may have to reinstall a few programs but it will basically attempt to reinstall everything (you wont lose documents, pictures or other files). Here is the instructions on how to perform this:
 

To refresh your PC
Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, tap Settings, and then tap Change PC settings.
(If you're using a mouse, point to the upper-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer down, click Settings, and then click Change PC settings.)


Tap or click Update and recovery, and then tap or click Recovery.


Under Refresh your PC without affecting your files, tap or click Get started.


Follow the instructions on the screen.

I have a Lenova Yoga I have several apps that won't open some are windows apps and others are rd party I have done some research and followed several troubleshooting suggestions beginning with a sfc scan which resulted in other Windows apps Cannot with 8.1 Settings or open several corrupt files that could not be repaired I recently loaded a different virus protection program than was originally on my computer and from some of my research it looks like maybe the registry fix part of the program may have removed some files that I need Cannot open Settings or several other apps with Windows 8.1 Whatever it is I can't get into the advanced startup no matter how fast I hit the buttons after starting I would like to reload windows but my laptop didn't come with a disk It's supposed to have a back-up installation on my backup drive or be available from the support website but I can't find it at either place I just want my computer to work again I am attaching a screen shot of what happens when I try to open one of my programs

You posted the same thing at Computer Hope. You need to provide more information for us to work with. EXACTLY what is happening, when is it happening, what led up to it, etc.

So, this computer's kinda new, about half a year old, and I just decided to make a new account, and... for some reason the stock apps like weather, news, and even the app store won't open. They have a little X symbol on the bottom right corner of the Start tile, and they don't seem to do anything. Any of them other than the store will display an error, and the store tile will do the animation and just close right away. The original account is just fine though, so... Any idea what's wrong?

A:Creating a new (second) account, stock apps not working?

I'm going to guess that it's the permissions.
You installed everything with your other account and they work only for that account
Keep us posted

A:Win 8 Pro 64 bit - store will not upgrade apps

For starters, you could remove Norton. I know you'd prefer not to but it's not as if you couldn't reinstall it later.
Once it is uninstalled, then you'd be able to go into the Control Panel to the Windows Defender feature and get it started there.
Installing Norton automatically turns Defender off.
BTW: In case you're interested in my opinion, there's no way I would have Norton run on my computer or those of my clients (I run a computer repair shop).
Moving on.
I have a question.
Are you able to install free apps? Just asking, as you didn't mention it.
 
The one and only time that I ran into the same problem as you have, is when I had turned off Windows Automatic Updates, as per a client's request.
With Updates turned off, you cannot download or update any apps.
