I found someone having a similar problem and narrowing it down to a display driver issue. Don't know how to fix it in my case yet though.

@Just finished with 2 and 3. Nothing has changed. If I could dig deeper into event viewer logs or see them at increased detail, that would be quite helpful. Perhaps I can compile a Metro app sample with VS2012 and see what is going wrong with video and 3d games.

Weather, News, Mail, Skype all work; anything except games and videos.

sfc /scannow did not find any integrity problems.

Both Adera and Videos seem to throw file not found exceptions but cannot see from the event viewer which files they look for o_O. I get the feeling this might take me a looong time to figure out perhaps even until somebody else with more Windows experience run into a similar issue and reports his fixes.

Thanks but it is now doing a system-wide verification. How is that related?

comment Can Windows Server 2012 run all Metro (/ Windows Store) applications?
I don't care much about it either for the time being. Busy loving the heaven into Haskell / F# and HTML5+CSS3+JS these days. There is always VLC to cover my entertainment needs. Oh I had also used Windows 2008 R2 like Windows 7 before and can just as well report that it does run all PC games without a single complaint.

Thanks for the answer. On the same day I asked the question I started using Windows Server 2012 on my laptop giving it Windows 8 treatment and it just works beautifully. My university provides Sophos to its staff so I am covered on that front as well. Some metro apps, such as mail, used to crash often but it received 2 updates already and now is rock solid. For some reason I cannot get Metro apps to play videos though.
