    Have you tried systems restore also can you remember what you pressed to get it like that have a look in your file and see if you have ticked customise at all.

How do I view the Windows Store on a non W8 computer?
I want to see what applications are available (and screenshots if possible) before I decide to take the plunge and upgrade my laptop to windows 8. For example, is there a decent lightweight DVD (and maybe bluray) player, that doesn't have a crapload of useless and redundant features?
