I was really happy to go to 8 when the offer came out to purchase it at such a great price. Now I really wish I had not. I have no one in my usual group of people who know computer stuff who knows a thing about 8 and I am having mountains of problems with it.
It worked great at first but all of the sudden and for no apparent reason I started getting a strange error code if I attempted to install anything. In this thread: I need serious help with 8 PLEASE! ) I researched and found that I needed to activate the Administrator account and install from there, which I have done. Now so many things do not work and I am not really able to figure out why. My Incredimail can not access the network from my admin account for some reason. It keeps getting a firewall error. I have no idea of how to fix this. Also, I am in the BETA for Neverwinter Nights. I downloaded and installed the game which, of course, had to be done from the admin account. This was automatically placed in the public games folder. I do not want to play an online game from my admin account. I logged out from there and logged in to my regular account. It did not show Neverwinter as being installed there. This happened with Skype too. I figured I knew where it was saved so I went to the public folder and launched the game. It is not able to run from there and crashes. It does run from the admin account. Why? How do I grant my regular account permission to install? I have searched the user settings and I have not found a way. this account is part of the administrator group. Why can it not install? I have looked all over to find tutorials or any kind of instructions for fixing all of this but nothing I have found seems to apply. Would I be better off just going back to 7 where I knew how to do all of this and could make things work or can any of this be fixed in 8?
