    Not work idea on these error 0x80072EE7

  • Kapil Arya

    ^^ Try creating new user account and check if Store works on that.

  • I tried all of these fixes and none of them worked. Then I decided that perhaps the fact that AVG had failed prior to my getting the error with the Windows Store was significant. I couldn’t uninstall AVG in the standard way so I searched on how to use the AVG remover tool. That did the trick and AVG was uninstalled. And when I ran the Store app it worked perfectly. I am now using AVAST as my AV tool

  • Kapil Arya

    ^^ So AVG blocked your Store app, great to hear the issue is resolved now :)

  • your first method was solved my problem.
    Thank you

  • Thanks a bunch. The information was very useful and I hope I may get answers for many of my questions in the future too.

  • Nothing works. I’m going to back up my files and try resetting the system. I’ve wasted many, many hours over the course of weeks trying to fix this. I’m so sorry I ever “upgraded” from Windows 7 to Windows 10.

  • Hi Kapil, none of this worked for me. What is next?
