Did you install all the latest Windows updates? Did you install the latest video driver from your hardware vendor? When you say "fresh install" do you mean you did not perform an upgrade? Have you looked at the crash results to see if you could identify where the problem was? When you say "it crashes", do you mean the OS or the apps? And by "crashes" do you mean a blue screen, or something else?

I have never had so many problems with a fresh install of anything before.

The worst part is, I spent 40 bucks on this, when just today I was granted access to the programs at school, and could have gotten windows8 for free...
Did you install via online download? If yes, did the Windows Upgrade Assistant identify any significant problems with your system? Did your current problems start immediately after installation? Have you tried to system restore back to before your problems began? Have your run the sfc /scannow command several times in sequence?
