    Windows 8 auto shutting down the moment it starts!!


    Just got the Lenovo ideatab lynx in the mail today. Used it for like 2 hours.

    Only things I did: install chrome, uninstalled nortan (borderline spyware antivirus in my opinion).

    It restarted without telling my anything to configure updates (said do not shut off, preparing to configure blah blah blah) Then I plugged in my galaxy s3 to use usb, its started installing the drivers then shut down again.

    now it is constantly shutting down as soon as it gets up. No peripherals are plugged in, it is connected to power.

    Help! I don't have a keyboard to run usb for safe mode. And I'm pretty good with computers.

    Restore your computer to factory fresh, and start over if possible (see my sig). Uninstall Norton only by using the uninstall tool on the Norton website. Set Windows Update immediately so that you choose what happens with updates. Install updates selectively and no more than a few at a time. I install up dates one at a time. Chrome should not be a problem.

I'm not talking about the Metro thing, I'm talking about how is it in terms of stability, security, speed, usability, etc... Also, do the side menus get in the way, especially when using desktop programs? It's that time again for me to reformat, so I might as well take the opportunity and...
