According to users, Emerging issue 70008 can sometimes appear due to your antivirus. Your antivirus can interfere with certain Windows features causing this issue to appear.

However, you can fix the problem simply by disabling a couple of antivirus features. If that doesn’t help, you might have to disable your antivirus altogether.

In the worst case scenario, you might have to uninstall your antivirus. If removing the antivirus solves the issue, your next step would be to switch to a different antivirus solution.

Solution 3 – Use PowerShell

In order to fix Emerging issue 70008, some users are suggesting to use PowerShell. This is a powerful tool, and if you’re not careful you can cause damage to your operating system.


If you want to be completely safe, you might want to create a System Restore point before running PowerShell. To fix this issue by using PowerShell, follow these steps:

  1. Press Windows Key + S and enter powershell. Right-click PowerShell and choose Run as administrator from the menu.

Solution 4 – Install the latest updates

If Emerging issue 70008 keeps appearing on your PC, you might be able to fix the problem simply by installing the latest updates.

Windows updates bring a variety of fixes and Windows 10 usually downloads them automatically in the background.

However, sometimes you might miss an update or two due to certain issues, but you can always check for updates manually. To do that, follow these steps:

  1. Press Windows Key + I to open the Settings app.
  2. Now go to Update & Security section.

Once your system is updated to the latest version, check if the problem is still there.

Solution 5 – Perform System Restore

Users reported that this problem started appearing after installing a specific update, and in order to fix it you can perform System Restore. To restore your PC, you need to follow these steps:

  1. Press Windows Key + S on your keyboard and enter restore. Select Create a restore point from the menu.
    Emerging issue 97275
  2. Click the System Restore button.

  4. Select the Restore Point you wish to revert to and click Next.

If the problem was caused by a problematic update, you might want to block the update from installing by using Show and Hide updates tool.

In order to effectively use this tool you need to know exactly which update is causing the problem, so keep a close eye on all recently installed updates.

Solution 6 – Perform SFC and DISM scan

According to users, sometimes this issue can occur because your system files are corrupted. However, you can easily fix corrupted files by running a couple of scans on your PC.

To do that, follow these steps:

  1. Press Windows Key + X to open Win + X menu. Choose Command Prompt (Admin) or Powershell (Admin) from the menu.
    Emerging issue 97275
  2. Enter sfc /scannow and press Enter.

The scan will now start. Keep in mind that the scan can take about 10-15 minutes, so don’t interrupt it.

Once the scan is finished, check if the issue is still there. If the problem is still present, or if you weren’t able to run SFC scan, you’ll need to perform DISM scan. To do that, follow these simple instructions:

  1. Open Command Prompt as administrator.
  2. Enter DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth and press Enter to run it.

Solution 7 – Create a new user account

If you’re having a problem with Emerging issue 70008, you might be able to fix it simply by creating a new user account.

Sometimes your user account can get corrupted, and the only way to fix this problem is to create a new account.

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. When Settings app opens, navigate to the Accounts section.

According to users, sometimes you might be able to solve this problem simply by performing an in-place upgrade.

In case you’re not familiar, an in-place upgrade will reinstall Windows 10 and force it to update to the latest version.

  1. Download and run Media Creation Tool.
  2. Choose Upgrade this PC now option.
  3. Wait while the setup prepares the necessary files.

Once you complete the setup, Windows 10 will be updated and reinstalled, and the problem with Emerging issue 70008 will be resolved.

Emerging issue 70008 can prevent you from running Windows Store apps, but you should be able to fix it after running the appropriate PowerShell commands or by downloading the necessary updates.
