We have the same problem! Windows 8 users with for example McAfee SaaS version 5.4.0 patch 2 can use the WIndows 8 apps, but users who have upgraded to version 6 (including me) can't open the WIndows 8 apps!
is McAfee blocking the access to the IsolatedStorage or something? How to fix this??
temporary solution: downgrade to version 5.4.0: https://community.mcafee.com/message/282392
edit: not working on windows 8

edit2: i got it working! go to properties of vssetup.exe, go to Compatibility tab, check "run compatibility settings for windows 7" and voila
For mine I have McAfee for the life of the computer. I opened: McAfee Home / Web and Email Protection / Firewall / Internet Protection for Programs / scroll down to GamesAppService and turn off the block. Windows store started working again for me!
