[Solved] "Something happened and the Windows Store is no longer working"

"Something happened and the Windows Store is no longer working"

Hello all,

I installed Windows 8 on a new computer yesterday on a SSD.
Moved my Users and ProgramData directories to a second, disk based,  HD (as explained here :

http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials/4275-user-profiles-relocate-another-partition-disk.html).
At the time, I remember Windows Store was working.

Installed a bunch of windows updates, both Windows 8 and Office 2010.
This morning, when I try to access any application detail page on the Windows Store, I got the message mentioned in the title.

I ran the Modern UI diagnostics tool, and I got two warnings and one error :
"...
Checking for %ProgramData%\Microsoft\Device Stage\Device\113527a4-45d4-4b6f-b567-97838f1b04b0 The setting is empty.
Adding the new setting (A;;0x1200a9;;;AC)(A;OICIIO;GXGR;;;AC) Reset result: SUCCESS 

Checking for %ProgramData%\Microsoft\Windows The setting is empty.
Adding the new setting (A;OICIIO;GXGR;;;AC) Reset result: SUCCESS

 ... 

Checking for PeerDistSvc SC.exe finished with exit code = 1060: [SC] OpenService FAILED 1060:The specified service does not exist as an installed service.


This last one worries me.
It seems I am missing the BranchCache service.
I looked into %WINDIR%/System32, and indeed the DLL is not present.  Could this be the cause of the store not working ? And if so, how could a system DLL be deleted without any warning
or message ?

Thanks for the answers you mays provide.
