    Can you go to system preferences, create a new user account (managed or admin doesn't matter)? Then log in with the new account and try to launch the app store from there. If it works from the fresh new account, then you know something is munged in your main user account. If you live near an Apple store, this sounds like the sort of thing they live for and anybody gets up to a 30 minute free Genius Bar appointment no matter how old their Mac is (within reason). Since you can run Mavericks, I know yours is new enough for them to help regardless of your Applecare status.

    I did a full restore from the time machine, took me 3 hours, and finally work again. The reason was I accidentally delete some of the system files by using "clean my mac".

    App store launch problems

    Have had same problem with Snow Leopard 10.6.8 and none of Online fixes suggested by apple worked including date change, permissions, keychain etc etc etc. Neither did downloading 10.6.6 copying apps folder using Charles soft "Pacifist" and reloading 10.6.8. Support useless wanted £39 for one phone call.
    Found answer was starting in safe mode then going to app store and downloading Mavericks. At first normal reboot in Mavericks it still did not work unless used safe start. Had to buy and download i Photo as version for 10.6.8 does not work with Mavericks. Strangely now the apps launch seems to work.

    Suggest start in safe mode there is obviously a permissions conflict somewhere and apple do not acknowledge it or seem to know it's a fix as they do not mention it on their online support:confused:
