    My computer Crashes on the metro screen upon start up!

    Hey guys, So I have been running Windows 8 for about 3 months now and i have encountered a problem. My computer starts up fine and I can log in but when it loads onto the metro screen for the first time it crashes. I can still move my mouse. I have tried CTRL+ALT+DEL and clicked on task manager but nothing happens. Sometimes I get an error pop up saying something is wrong with my PC and the search the internet for 'RESOURCE_NOT_OWNED'. Please could you help

    Many thanks,
