    Hi Guys

    For me this is causing SFC /SCANNOW to report errors it can't fix. I'm unsure as to the exact addition that's causing it but I think it's when I add Internet Explorer (desktop version) to the metro start menu as it overwrites the shortcut for the metro IE and the only other additions I made using this was the shutdown/restart/log off shortcuts. I've re-installed twice now and the same thing has happened on both occasions.
    Just a heads up.

    I think it's a great program but after I had issues and did a "Refresh," I didn't use it again and I have not had an issue since.

    Kind of expected with a beta on a beta so nothing against the programmer. I think it's cool he does this.

    No I was no way blaming the programmer, its a great tool and were all going to have issues. It was more of a heads up before people start posting cbs logs for sfc not been able to fix errors. I'm unsure whether it's just my system or not anyway but can now say for sure its the addition of IE to the metro start menu causing it for me.

    Thanks, Danny. That is, more than likely, beneficial to the developer of MetroTweak.

    Another reason I really like this forum!

    Turning Metro UI off per-user:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\RPEnabled set to 0
    Then log off and back in.

    Then for the rest of the system, login UI, etc:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\RPEnabled set to 0
    Restart.

    No need to change or remove DLL files.

    Win 8 runs better on my netbook than Win 7 or XP.
    That I like. I do not like the Win 8 Metro UI.
    This util allows me to switch off Metro for productivity.
    I will continue to try to learn the Metro UI but for my use the ui is a step back in time.
    If I was instaliing on a tablet, then the Metro UI would be a plus.

    Here's another option to be able to quickly toggle the Metro UI on or off through the context menu without affecting the Metro Task Manager.
