He doesn't need to refresh his PC. He needs to open the desktop, hit window+R, and run WSReset.exe, then reboot. Much quicker and simpler, and way less invasive.

hmmmm.......I don't have a W8 machine right now to find it, but I think the directory you're looking for is c:\windows\cache - delete everything in it, and reboot. It's how I fixed the store on the first U510 they sent me.

 

Let me dig around and see if I can find the link where I got the instructions again.
