    Well this kind of problem is also not new for windows 8 users.There are two ways to fix this issue.Both of these methods are shown below:Fixing this Issue by Disabling Proxy Connection
    • Open "Internet Explorer"
    • Now click on "Setting" option which appears in the upper right corner.
    • Now click on "Internet Options".
    • After that navigate to Connection>LAN Settings.
    • Now uncheck the option which says "Use a Proxy Server for your LAN"
    • Finally click on "Apply" and then "Ok"
    Fixing this Issue by Resetting the Store Cache
    • First of all open windows 8 Metro Screen and then open Desktop.
    • Now press "Windows key +R" to open Run Command.
    • Type "WSReset.exe" and press "Enter"
    • Finally restart your computer and you are done.

    Hello Friend.....

    Sometimes due to security regain you can't open Windows 8 app store on your system because Windows 8 app store want default security to access that. To make default security follow these steps...............

    =====>Open Internet Explorer on your system.
    =====>Press Alt + T key combination on the keyboard to open Tools menu.
    =====>Under the Tools click on Internet Option.
    =====>Under the Internet Option click on Security Tab.
    =====>Now click on Custom Laval button.
    =====>Security Setting- Internet Zone dialog box will open after clicking.
    =====>Scroll the content list and fine Use Authentication.
    =====>Under the User Authentication check the radio option Automatic logon with current username
    and password
    =====>Click on OK button to confirm change.
    =====>Now try to open Windows 8 app store again.


    Try this i hope this will help you....................
