    Unable to install Applications in windows 8

    I have installed windows 8 with ease and everything was working fine. Last night,I updated it which is the cause of problem. When I want to check the detail of this issue, it shows "Windows Firewall can't change some of your settings. Error code 0x80070422". Is there any method to fix this issue?

    This is also a common problem with windows 8.You are not the only one, who has reported about this problem.To fix this issue, follow the below given steps:
    • Press "Windows Key +R" .Run command screen will appear before you.
    • Simply type "services.msc" and hit "Enter".
    • Right click on the option which says "Windows Defender Service" and "Windows Firewall Service".
    • First of all check whether these services are already activated or not.If not activated already then click on "Start" and check whether this issue still persists or not.
    If you are still facing the same issue then use a better antivirus like Quick Heal Total Security 2013 or Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 and perform a full scan.It will fix your problem.

    Friend..

    This common problem is generally occurred at the time of installation of apps because due to the internet failure.

    So check your internet connection is working or not.

    Also check that your window firewall is not interfering, if this, and then turn OFF the firewall.

    After checking above cause, you need to restart the system, and again try to update the window.

    Hello !!

    the issue which has caused is due to the restriction made by your windows firewall.
    so,when you are going to download the updates just close your firewall for that particular time.
    and then enable it after completion of update.
    this has happened because your firewall not allow the externalconnection to get created.
