Default Windows 8 app problem

Hi

I have just purchased a new Acer laptop which runs windows 8 64-bit

For some reason, when I open applications they flash up on the screen and then close by themselves.
The store stays open but keeps going back to the home page by itself!

I have tried disabling UAC and checked my resolution as suggested online but to no avail.

Please help.

Windows update? Install drivers? If not what about reinstalling Windows 8?

I emailed the laptop company I ordered from and they told me that the manufacturers no longer issue copies of the operating systems. They told me to make my own recovery media or back up
