    I've got a strange issue with my Lumia 930. It's on the DP Update and on EE (UK) firmware.

    Since yesterday most of my apps just force close as soon as I open them. This includes all Microsoft apps (MSN apps, Facebook, Music, Video etc), all store-updatable system apps (Calendar, Battery Saver, Display, Touch etc) and some others too like Spotify and Flipboard.

    I've tried soft-resetting, changing the date, changing region, clearing temp files, clearing IE history and no luck.

    I did try uninstalling an MSN app and re-installing it and that app now works. But I can't do this for system apps (I tried the changing the year to 2125 trick but I still couldn't uninstall the calendar).

    Has anyone else had this problem? Does anyone know how to fix it?

    Nokia Support told me they'd never heard of this problem and Windows Phone Support told me to hard reset the device. I know this is an option but it's rather inconvenient so wondered if anyone had any ideas before I do this!

    Thanks!

    Judging by what's happening you're probably at hard reset point.

    I know it's inconvenient but it's not as bad as it used to be.
