  • Try to "Refresh your PC without affecting your files" and see if it helps out. You can find that option under Control Panel > General.

    When you do a refresh:

    · Your files and personalization settings will not be changed

    · Your PC settings will be restored back to their default settings

    · Apps from the Windows Store will be kept, but any other app will be removed & require reinstallation

    The problem is using Live ID to login and sync. Switch back to a local account, and the news app would start working

  • Hi EduardoMLD,

    When I installed The Developer Preview the first time I had several issues. So, I decided to run the Refresh Your PC and it fixed my problems. It now runs very smoothly. I like it!!!
