    Desktop to Metro

    Error 12/5/2014 11:33:51 AM LoadPerf 3012 None

    Hi everyone who responded to my problem. I'm sorry I'm late getting back to you all but have been busy. Had Microsoft tech enter my system but they weren't much help. here is what I found in the event viewer. No idea what to do with it though.

    I'm still stymied. It will happen when I click " maps,space weather, and other metro apps I've downloaded or that came installed. It does not happen on all the apps I click on but more than enough to really aggravate anyone.

    Thanks for all your interest,

    Desktop to Metro

    I want to thank all those who took interest in my problem, all the info I received was all useful and educational. Where I investigated all the tips given Ztruker sent me to other posts which led me to the control panel also but dealing withj files and folders.

    My problem is resolved.

    Thanks again Win forum members, you guys are always there to help.

Metro at first, then, it's Desktop on the PC?
I have been using 8 for since the Beta came out. I'm still skeptical about the Metro interface, but was willing to give it a try downloading a few apps, etc. What I found is that there are many apps, like news, etc. where you begin in Metro, but then switch to the regular desktop browser. This...
