Crashing of Metro Apps on Windows 8 and 8.1

Most of the users mailed us ( that while opening their Metro apps such as Bing News, Bing Sports, Bing Weather, Health and Fitness etc it crashes. Many of them are waiting for the solution. So here is the solution. Our team members found out many ways to fix the crashing of apps.

Before we peak into the solution let me say the reason for apps to crash or apps to fail.

When you click on the app ( eg: Bing News) you can only see the icon of the app on a big screen and then directs you back to the start screen. This is because some of the files in your System are corrupted..Dont worry. We can fix this. Other bloggers say that you need to re-install windows 8 or windows 8.1 which is not practical. But for this you dont need any type of restoring.

It is recommended to check the following :

1)  Check whether the screen resolution is more than 1024* 768
2) Check whether User account settings are enabled.
3) Check the antivirus for any virus,worms,trojans etc.(Optional)

Steps to fix the crashing of apps on Windows 8 and Windows 8.1

1) Rum Command Prompt as Admin
2) Type the following without quotes
      " sfc / scannow"
3) The slash symbol ( / ) is also needed. Just type the Following.
4)Some text will be displayed
5)You have to wait for 5 - 10 Minutes.
6)After completing 100% it will instruct you to reboot the system.
7) Reboot your system and see the magic

Your apps will never crash because windows has detected corrupt files and fixed them or repaired them by itself. Dont get worried or scared by seeing the word corrupt. Because of that files only we had executed the commands on Command Prompt.

Hope you share this for those who are still struggling on it and also spread the message that for fixing app crashes you dont need to refresh or re-install windows.


  1. It worked on me after googling for more than 3 days and done it myself.

  2. Dear visitors this is the only safest way to fix app crashes so follow the steps

  3. One more way is there
    1) Go to my computer -> C drive Properties -> Click security tab-> Check where all aplication package option is there. Allow all the privileges so that it doesnot require any blo cks. This medod is easy but not safe because installing 3rd party apps can lead to security flaws.This only has got 67% succes rate where as the aboe has got a sucess rate of 98%.

  4. Didn't work for me. It said it didn't find any integrity violations.
