    Sorry for taking so long in replying to you. Yes I'm using a true admin ac.
    I started getting problems down loading updates for windows got an error 80070002. when I googled this error code I had to open Administrative Tool s folder and found the folder empty. I think this may be the problem. I searched and and found the services file clicked it and Services opened I deleted the troublesome files and got update working again.
    However, I still can not open settings from the charm bar.
    I am keeping my fingers crossed when I upgrade to Win 10 setting will be repaired?????
    Thank you for your help

    See this Microsoft article on how to fix Windows Update error 80070002.

    Should work for Windows 8.1 as well...
