Since updating to 8.1 keep getting the error code 0x80246007 when attempting to install any new applications :s

 

Also, has anyone had any major issues in using a Gmail account as the main email account? Read a few disconcerting reports that only @hotmail, @live @outlook work?

Have you made any modifications to your system, such as disabling UAC (for example)?
Have you tried running wsreset?
Have you tried the Windows 8 Apps troubleshooter?

I have been using the mail app with only a gmail account since the beginning and it works perfectly fine.

Appreciate that, thanks!

 

I have UAC disabled yes (one of the first things i turn off)

I havent run wsreset but i shall do momentarily!
Ive had a browse through the troubleshooter and nothing seems to have worked off there
