Use this parameter instead, and try again:

First:
Set-ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted

Then:

Get-AppXPackage | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

(copy paste this in the shell)

Hmm...

If you have tested your HDD/SSD using a software such as CrystalDiskInfo, to rules out a defective disk, then I strongly suggest you re-install your windows at this point. Something is clearly wrong with it, and it needs to be re-installed.

Your hard drive is not the issue it seems...

Hmm, next step, follow the procedure in this link?
http://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/3175-apps-reinstall-re-register-windows-8-10-a.html

Copy this to the command prompt for example:

PowerShell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted -Command "& {$manifest = (Get-AppxPackage *WindowsStore*).InstallLocation + '\AppxManifest.xml' ; Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $manifest}"

Though that seems to be the same thing as above....:(

I'm truly stumped... I'll try checking for other solutions.

so i ran the tweaking.com program it said there where errors and i fixed them using the program while also reseting windows store and still not fixed. but when i logged in i keep getting notifications saying a default app was reset because of a problem. got it about 5 times. and its stopped for now. but i would guess this is normal.
