    SOLVED Windows update always fails

    i would run 'chkdisk' to check for bad sectors on the hard disk. Also 'SFC /scannow' to repair corrupted system files, if at all possible, though by what your telling us, the diagnosis looks bad. Last resort is back up anything important to you & reset Windows to a clean fresh slate. all the best

    Too many items on Start Menu

    remember, whatever u choose to delete is still in ur PC. U have not un-installed it. Delete it and only the shortcut to the program is gone temporarily. Those shortcuts u can get back if u change ur mind in the future.

    windows store

    That likely means a problem at their end, not ur computer. Maybe too many ppl on the site, so its over-loaded. Wait a day or two. Should be fine once the 'rush' passes :)
