Internet Not Working in Edge & Windows Store Apps, Edge Won't Close

Question: Internet Not Working in Edge & Windows Store Apps, Edge Won't Close

I've been having this problem since I upgraded to the creator's update. Sometimes everything works perfectly, but most of the time I have these issues:

Edge won't connect to internet or load anythingI can't close tabs in EdgeThe "Close all tabs" option in edge doesn't work, only closes 1 tabI can only get Edge to close using Task ManagerWindows Store apps like Twitter and Netflix won't connect and also sometimes won't closeI can't check for Windows updates through settings (won't connect again)

The internet works on third party apps that weren't downloaded in the Windows Store, like Chrome, Firefox, Opera, and Spotify. Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this or how I could fix it? Thanks so much!

Preferred Solution: Internet Not Working in Edge & Windows Store Apps, Edge Won't Close

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/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi ineedhelppls. Welcome to the TenForums @ineedhelppls

First thing I would do is run these commands at command prompt(admin). In the following commands do not key in the information in brackets, it is there to tell you what command does.

ipconfig /flushdns (Clear the dns cache)
nbtstat -RR (release and refesh NetBIOS names)
netsh int ip reset (reset ip settings)
netsh winsock reset (Reset Winsock Catalog)

Test.

Then I would disable IPv6. You will notice it can be enabled just as easy.

If you still get issues I would recommend a network reset. You will lose wireless passwords.

Start=>Settings=>Network and Internet=> scroll down to bottom on the right hand side, last option, Network Reset.

Hi guys!

I'm having this problem since yesterday, and I can't find anyone with the same problem.
I have this problem where no microsoft applications work. I can't open Edge, Windows Store or Photos app. When I want to open them, there is absolutely 0 response. No error-message, nothing! When I observe the task manager while starting these apps, they DO appear for like, 1 second. They immediately disappear though.
I don't know what the issue is. I have this problem since I installed the application: SaferVPN (I already uninstalled it).
Ou yea, my Windows search doesn't work either. No reaction from the system at all.

I already tried running sfc /scannow.
My computer is up to date.
There were no windows updates involved at the point of time where the problem occurred.
I tried restarting windows several times.

I run Windows 10 for quite a long time now. Also, when I want to add a Microsoft Account, it give no response either. (I think thats because it usually opens a small Edge Browser Windows for entering the credentials.

Can you guys please help me? I usually find my solutions in already existing forums, but I didn't find anyone who had the same problem as me (perhaps I didn't google the right thing and couldn't find it because of that.)

Thanks for anything in advance.
Kind Regards,
Maarten

Hi smaardy, welcome to Ten Forums. The best way right now to fix your problem is by doing an repair install/ in place upgrade. This is from the Tutorial Forum. Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade - Windows 10 Forums . Choose the option to keep your apps and files. There was a way to re-register the windows apps, but it has not been working with the latest version of windows (fall update or version 1511).

Hello,
For a long time my computer was running very slowly but did not have time to do anything about until lately I have been receving a lot of junk emails and started feeling suspicious and searched the web.

Yesterday night I have downloaded Malwarebytes and after scanning, it detected 14 issues which have been quarantine. Today when I started the computer the Edge and Store icon were gone from the task bar and all Apps downloaded from the Store and already installed by Windows like Calendar etc. have gone too, not even in the list of the Apps. The whole configuration of Start has changed and all the apps present are defined new, and on recent used, there are apps I have never downloaded and never used. Those apps that were in the Start Menu on the right have completely gone.

Edge works because when I try to open a file from Windows Mail, as Edge is default browser, it opens but when i narrow it, it just disappears and cannot find it anywhere.

When I opened Windows Mail there was a bill from my telephone company and just after some minutes another arrived which looked just the same but when I opened it ,it had an attachment rar file and it was obvious it was not from the company, (they never send me the bill I have to log into their website to download it) so discard it as junk. But for sure there was a virus in there. So I am starting to freak out that there is something going on in the computer.

If I use another account user in the same computer Edge and Store are th... Read more

Hello community. First of all I want to thanks this forum because it helped me to solve the "Temporary Profile" issue which is super annoying. I didn't lose any file or pre installed app, except Windows Store and Edge. I reall don't know how to fix this. The tutorial from this forum I used was this: You've been signed in with a temporary profile - Fix

I had to add a built in administration profile in order to recover the damaged profile, and as indicated on the tutorial you have to erase a bak file in order to do so. After rebooting I dont see any Store app or Edge app or nether the search bar of windows may find it. If you guys know how to fix this I will really appreciate it!!! Thanks and have an excelent weekend!

I just updated to windows 10 and there is no apps at all, no store, even no edge i dont know what to do... HELP

Answer:No default apps,store, edge and other stuff..

Hello, it's possible you had a conflicting program installed when you upgraded.
Normally if someone has a major problem having had Win 10 working, an in-place upgrade repair install is a fall-back solution.

You could try running
chkdsk C: /F
(your PC will restart to do this)
Post back the result, which will be on the screen briefly.
Otherwise you can get the result as follows:
How do I see the results of a CHKDSK that ran on boot? - Ask Leo!
and then
sfc /scannow
from an admin command prompt
(Press Windows key + X, click command prompt (admin) )

and advise the result (in the CBS.LOG file).
If the only failures reported are opencl.dll or some audio files, you can ignore those.

Please complete your system specs and advise what OS you upgraded from.

This problem appears to be effecting Edge and Internet Explorer as well, in addition to all Store apps. When I try to run the troubleshooter it says that the cache is corrupted, even if I manually go to the folder and delete the cache beforehand. I would really like to resolve this problem without re-installing windows as a I have a lot of software setups that I do not wish to repeat.

Answer:Code: 0x80131505 error with windows store. Edge, and internet explorer

Hi, there's no reference to that error number in the forum, alas, nor useful ones on the internet based on a quick search.

You haven't stated whether that's related to internet access, which is about the only thing that occurs to me is possibly common between IE and universal apps, or when you try to launch any of these, or which troubleshooter you've run (there are several).

I will assume you haven't take up our strongly repeated advice to use disk imaging routinely, which would give you an option of restoring a previously working version of Windows even if your disk failed. (E.g. Macrium Reflect (free) + its boot disk + external storage for disk image sets).

Have you tried using System Restore? Do you have any useful restore points?

Failing that, I suggest your easiest option may be an in-place upgrade repair install which keeps all programs and most settings.

I don't know which build of Windows you are running; if the Creator's build, you can follow the tutorial instructions as the are. If an earlier build, you need an iso or boot disk for that build, base language and 'bitness'.

Why Microsoft releasing buggy updates.

Answer:In-build apps(Phone, Store, Edge.. so on) are not visible after anniversary updates on lumia 730

make sure to check for updates in the store.
sometimes you have to give the phone to settle down after the update.
try a soft reset.

I was going to back up all my files, for a restore, but I get an error message: files failed to back up: Windlp.state-old xml, and Windlp.state.xml. I do not know if this related or not. I could not find these files on my PC....

Answer:Start Menu, MS Edge, Cortona, App Store not working

Cortana and the App Store etc. are heavily dependant on a Microsoft account to work. Perhaps you may consider adding or creating a "company Microsoft account" and tying it to your domain? Connect your Microsoft account to your domain account - Windows Help

Hi All, I did an upgrade from Win7 HP 64 bit to Win 10 - I triggered it manually from the MS download. At first all was well, but then Edge locked up. I killed the appropriate processes in Task Manager, then rebooted. The PC basicall works, but some of the major bits of the interface do not:
The Edge & Store icons in the Taskbar are blank. Clicking where the Store button should be brings a message that 'This app can't open' and refreshing the PC might help fix it. The Edge button location does nothing.
The Start button or key also do nothing visible, the Search doesn't work either - so I can't get into Settings - Control Panel is accessible, but of course doesn't have the new Settings.
I booted from DVD - got into Repair, but it won't roll back to the previous version (which I did use on another PC to get back to Win7).
A system restore did complete, but hasn't fixed things. Also, trying to Reset the PC failed too. I also tried a new User account (which I found as a possible fix) - I had to do this via CMD - no good either.
So, before I do a clean install, is there anything else I can do?
Thanks in advance!

Answer:Win 10 broken - blank Edge, Store in Taskbar, Start not working at all

As we know reset would be like a clean install. Fact being if ever did want to go back to old OS,since having issues now even trying rollback. Through advanced options it did not work either, rollback to Win 7 ? https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/4...s-windows.html

This is a long shot, but try system file checker and DISM.

Admin Command prompt copy paste and press enter, let it finish
sfc /scannow

Same open command prompt, copy and paste this, press enter let it finish
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

reboot the pc, make take several reboots 3x's and several tries with these commands to try to fix it, if it can.
When you booted from the DVD it was a Windows 10 iso disc, right ?

Apps such as skype,steam,chrome,etc. I tried turning of my firewall and updating my internet drivers but nothing worked. Oddly enough, I used to be on windows 7 and that little windows 10 upgrade icon on the bottom right of my screen told me that my computer and my apps were all compatible. But after upgrading and running the troubleshooter, it says my apps are not compatible. Uninstalling and re-installing the app doesn't help, because I can get the app and all the files and stuff, but when is all done I still cannot connect to internet.
Help plz. thank you.

I can not close Microsoft Edge.  It works everytime I start computer but will not close with the X.  I have to go to task manager to end task.  Then it will not work again until I restart computer.  Then it works fine until I quit using it. Example!  I go to check email etc.  Then I just want to use computer off line to type a letter, then I try to go back and edge does not open.

It's happening! Good news for Edge users, you can now install our extension and use your new favorite browser ad-free.

Last year Microsoft introduced support for third-party extensions in its newcomer, the Edge browser. We have been waiting for that moment, so we immediately started to develop extension specifically for the new browser. Finally, we are pleased to introduce you the Adguard for Edge, which is already available on Windows Store.Click to expand...


Restrictions

OS: Windows 10

Adguard won't work in InPrivate, as this mode doesn't yet support third-party extensions.

Extension does not support the integration mode. This means that it won't work alongside with the full-fledged Adguard program.
We want to thank Microsoft for making it possible to provide Edge users with Adguard protection! Particularly we want to thank the Edge team, it was great and easy to work with them. They provided us an invaluable assistance, responding quickly to changes during development. We call on all developers to follow us and create more cool extensions for Windows Store!

So here we are on Windows Store. Currently, only a few extensions authorized by MS appeared on Windows store. And we are proud that we are among the chosen ones Click to expand...
 

Answer:Adguard for Edge is now available on Windows Store

Hello, I have recently just upgraded to Windows 10 from a Windows 8.1 build (and did not do a clean install) and I have recently been experiencing some bugs.

Firstly, I am unable to download any apps from the Windows App Store. I have tried many different apps but I always get error 0x80070002. This only seems to occur when I use my Microsoft Account and link it to my PC. When I tried downloading apps using my Microsoft account for the store but a local account for the PC, they installed perfectly fine. I am using a third-party firewall, McAfee Security Center which I have disabled temporarily but the issue still occurs. I have tried several solutions on the Internet such as using WSReset.exe, deleting Download and DataStore in SoftwareDistribution in the Windows folder, using Windows FixIt (which detected a service registration error and claimed to have fixed it, although whenever I run it again this same error pops up with it saying it fixed it again.) and even reregistering the program (which didn't work either).

The other issue I am having is that when I was using sfc.exe /scannow in the Adminstrator Command Prompt to check for problems, it detected a problem of some sort of image in Microsoft Edge. I have used this command before on my previous operating system and it didn't detect anything. It also said that it failed to repair it and I have the log which is attached.

I want to make this clear - I'm not complaining about a specific category of extensions or recommending them as it is against the rules.

However if you search for "ublock origin" in the store it finds nothing.



It obviously does exist as the link is mentioned by every Windows website in the world (and it works) so why is the store blocking it?




If they censor this then what else?

Answer:Windows Store censoring Edge extensions?

Not sure what Microsoft Store you are querying, but it looks like the extension is located on the New Zealand MS Store.

Read more at Microsoft will separate Edge browser updates from the Windows 10 OS with Redstone 3

Chrome is updated frequently and seamlessly by Google; however, Microsoft's Edge browser is only updated - aside from security updates - in new feature builds of Windows 10, which only happens twice per year.

But according to internal sources, that's all going to change in September, when the next feature update to Windows 10, codenamed Redstone 3, is released. Users will finally be able to get updates to the Edge browser via the Windows Store, which will allow Microsoft to add new features more frequently.
 

Answer:Edge Browser Updates to be delivered via Windows Store from September

It sounds like a good idea, but if it a manual update how many average home users will search the store updates. Microsoft needs to make it more automated I think.

I ve bought thinkpade edge 13 (0221RY6) and formated my hdd (was trying to install win XP). But now i am ready to switch on Windows seven and i am very sorry that i ve formated my HDD with pre installed windows 7.Somebody who has same machine PLS Can u give me your copy of recovery usb or link on it! Or any other help.THANKS!

Answer:I have lost my Recovery HDD with pre installed windows 7 on ThinkPad Edge 13 edge PLS Need HElp!

This is why one should burn recovery media before fiddling with the HD.
 
One option would be to download a legal Windows 7 ISO and install it.  Or borrow one.  You can use the product key on the bottom of your machine (or in the battery compartment) to activate the installation.  You may have to use the phone option to activate.
 
Working Legal Windows 7 Download Links 
 
To do this you must install the same version of Windows that came on your machine - but it can be either 32 or 64 bit.
 
Your machine came with Win7 Home Basic 32.  I can't say for certain that these "all version" ISOs include that version, but you can try and see.
 
Once you have Windows installed, go to the Lenovo support page and enter your machine type.  That will take you to a list of drivers and apps to download.  Expand the ThinkVantage option and install ThinkVantage System Update.  You can then run it and it will download and install the other software automatically.
 
I'm basing this on what I see on the US pages.  Yours may be different.
 
Good luck,

Hi Insomniac1971,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums!
 
Do you know which touchpad hardware you have example: Synaptics or Elantech?
 
Also try to uninstall and reinstall the current touchpad drivers (via Device manager in control panel) and reboot the machine, this may also help you to get your touchpad scroll work again.
 
After a reboot, just start checking for updates from windows update to start download and installation of the updated drivers.
 
Please let me know, whether the above steps helped you.
Thank you, Have a good day.

Hi, I purchased my Lenovo Thinkpad Edge 14 0578-A99 a week ago. My wireless internet works intermittently. It detects my wireless network properly, but fails to connect. Then suddenly, after a lot of refreshing/connecting/disconnecting it starts working. I have another Dell laptop on which it connects instantly (indicating that there is nothing wrong with the wireless router). Also, there is one icon for Intel WiFi, and one icon for Wireless Networks on my taskbar. I donot know if these are different, and which one should I enable. Is there any driver which I need to update, or is there anything I am not doing correctly to connect to wireless? Regards,Anish

Answer:Wireless internet working intermittently on Thinkpad Edge 14 0578-A99

You might want to check your power settings in windows 7.   Control panel, power options, under your power plan click change plan settings.  Then change advanced power settings, under wireless adapter settings,  power saving mode, make sure maximum performance is chosen for battery and plugged. Then also under control panel, device manager, network adapters, right click on your wireless adapter, properties, power management, uncheck, "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power." FN-F5 should bring up a little window that will allow you to turn on or turn off wireless.   To connect to a network, i'm assuming that you are using windows to control your wireless.  click the bar one and open network and sharing center and connect from there. Another thing that you can do is run Thinkvantage system update and make sure that your drivers are up to date.  If you find more than one, download and install it one at a time and reboot.  Don't do them all at once, sometimes that doesn't work so well. Let us know if any of this works for you.

Hey guys, first post on the forums.

I recently moved into an old house, and found some stuff in the storage room.

a huge looking computer that is a netfinity 7000

and a sun systems a1000 store edge.

i have no idea what the netfinity is, but when i opened the store edge it had a dozen or so hard drives in it.

i was wondering if there is a way to hook the store edge up to my desktop computer.

i do in home music production and would love the extra HD space.

i notices it had two power supplies on it so i didnt wanna just go plugging stuff in.

any help would be appreciated.

lol, what is this stuff?

thanks guys

Answer:Sun Systems A1000 Store Edge?

Welcome to TSG!!

The Netfinity is an old IBM server. The A1000 is probably so old that it's got fairly small drives in it. By the time you figured out how to interface to it, you could easily install a 1, 1.5 or 2 TB drive, and end up with a LOT more storage space than you'd get with this!

The two power supplies are for redundancy. If one goes out, or if the power from one is lost, the other picks up. In practice, they are connected to independent power sources.

That stuff was probably left behind because it was more trouble to move than it was worth!

Is the Microsoft edge updatable through the store or is it only updatable through the windows update ??

Answer:Is Microsoft Edge updatable through the store

Edge is a Store app and can be updated through the Windows Store. This is so they can update it more often without having to update the entire computer.

Hello everyone, I need your help,

I?m talking about the right edge of the taskbar, separated next to the time by a vertical line (in red in the image):

It seems to be a desktop button, because clicking on it, hides all the open windows, to reveal only the desktop (wallpaper).

I don?t need it, and I find it disturbing.

Answer:How can I remove the ‘button’ close to the right edge of the taskbar?

I've been using Win 10 for ten months now as a tester and didn't even know that was there. Can't imagine it causing anyone problems though.

I have a brand new HP Envy and MS Edge opens fine but if I surf for a short while it freezes and it can never be shut down with the x at top right. I have to use task manager to end task to close it. Also tried Firefox and it also freezes after a few minutes of surfing. This has happened on every network I've been logged onto.

Hoping someone can assist with an Edge issue on a Toshiba laptop running Windows Home.

Edge has all of a sudden stopped launching. Following the direction on another thread on this amazing site, went into Task Manager and ended task on Edge. That worked .... once....

Now, Edge will open just the first time, but opens up 15-20 Edge background processes. If you try to close normally using upper right-hand corner, Edge won't close. You have to got into Task Manager each time. And when you do, again, it opens 15-20 Edge background processes

If this was another browser, I'd probably just install and reinstall, but that's not an option with Edge.

Any suggestions?

I have a large number of "Favorites" created on my desktop which is running Windows 10 and Edge as the browser. I would like to have all of those same "Favorites" on my laptop that is also running windows 10 and Edge. How
can I copy the "Favorites" file from my desktop to my laptop so that I don't have to enter one-by-one each site and mark it as a favorite on the laptop?

Hi,

I have some Store apps (purchased and free) installed on my windows 10 but they immediately close after I run them. Though, the store itself opens flawlessly. There is a well-known shell script which is supposed to solve this issue:

Code:
powershell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $Env:SystemRoot\WinStore\AppxManifest.xml

However, it only worked for a few times and again this happened. Any help is highly appreciated.
