Two or three customers were disappointed this morning after a six-month old Microsoft retail store was unable to open for business.

"There was a sign on the locked door that said, '0x74041161 Non-system Error'," said one customer, 24-year-old Chiclet Donahue.

"I don't know what that means. I was here yesterday, and it was fine then, so I don't know what happened," she complained.

Jesus Wang, the store's manager, was equally perplexed.

"I couldn't open the store when I got here this morning. I thought maybe restarting it might help, so I drove home, then turned around and came back, but it still wouldn't open. It's very frustrating," he said. "I'll probably have to contact the Task Manager."
