I have recently had a new computer which has windows 8 installed. I am getting to grips with windows 8 graduallyu but I have 1 problem i haven't been able to solve. I click on store and then on a programme I want. I click install and get a screen saying i need to validate my email so an email will be sent to me. I have waited in vain for this email, clicked resend email, left it until the next day but all to no avail - I am not getting an email (yes I have checked my email is spelled correctly!). Now today when I tried when I clicked on install fo a programme I got a message saying error cannot be installed (tried another programme too and that was the same). Can anyone help???

I've resolved it - trial and error paid off!

That was a quick result.

Also trying to get to grips with my neighbour's W8.
