I am currently running Windows 8.1 (64 bit) and I recently installed new hardware (Mobo, CPU & GPU). Should I reinstall Windows? After placing in my new hardware, my PC booted up just fine but I've noticed a couple of issues. For example, now of my programs will execute from the home screen any longer. I have to go into the program files folder and manually execute the app or either use the search bar to find the exe file.
I've also been trying for the life of me to get that windows logo to appear on my taskbar so that I can install the windows app in preparation for the windows 10 upgrade but whatever I try doesn't seem to work.
The fact that I chose not to reinstall windows could this be causing my problems? The only reason I didn't reinstall is because everything "seemed" fine at first.
