Are the Windows Firewall and Update services running? For some reason they have to be turned on to download apps from the store.

Sometimes the apps wont install because of error code 0x80072004
The solution below worked for me.
For anyone else with this, the solution was that the Temporary Internet Files folder was wrong in Internet Explorer. Run IE, go into Internet Options, click Settings in Browsing History section, click Move Folder and set to something valid like "c:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows".
