You might be able to salvage that with another clean Windows install or check if you can't restore something with the ISO.
By the way, have you tried a system restore? (Never worked for me personally, but who knows)

Can't you unistall & reinstall the Store with some PowerShell magic?
At least you can do this with some preinstalled Windoozle apps like Candy Crush...
Aldar999213d@Jilano out of desperation, I did do a full Get-AppxPackage | Remove-AppxPackage then reinstalled them all. Nop. Was one of the first steps actually.
Nothing worked. I even did a complete system reset while keeping user data... Nope.
Tried fixing permissions back to either sysyem or trustedinstaller... Nop. Uninstall and reinstall? Nop. Purge cache? Nop. Troubleshooting? Nop...
I now appreciate Linux much more. At least in that environment, the apps bloody tell you what they want, or what went wrong! Here? Nop. No error, no logs I could find. Even lauching it from a bloody powershell window yielded nothing!
So... Last resort fix it was then - a complete system wipe and reinstall... That fixed it. And hey, at least I realized I've been using Windows Education edition, even now, more than 2 years out of school! Can't activate it anymore, because I don't have access to the school email... Ugh.
