    Default Windows Store apps and IE10 Metro will not start when UAC is disabled in Windows 8

    Windows Store apps cannot start when User Account Control is turned off!

    You will also not be able to start Internet Explorer 10 Metro version when you click any link in Windows 8 if the User Account Control feature is turned off, and Internet Explorer 10 is set as the default browser!



    So make sure your UAC is enabled.

    So says KB2736601.

    I have set my UAC in Windows 8 to Never Notify.
    Windows Store and IE10 (Metro) runs fine

    Im confused also with that information. So, does this means Windows 8 has a lot to clean up before public availability?
    Its really weird, it states that the issue is from UAC turned off, by turning it ON again the error will gone.
    But why is it that on my Windows 8 UAC Turned-OFF IE10 and Windows Store is still accessible.

    Can you click links in your Windows apps - which in turn opens IE10 Metro?
