    Windows 8 pro stuck on App screen


    So I upgraded to Windows 8 on Friday, worked fine over the weekend. This morning the machine rebooted and was at the logon screen. So I proceeded to logon and it came up the app page but I cannot click on anything, I hit the windows key to get to the desktop it will flash to it but come right back to the main screen? I haven't got into safe mode yet I'm at work but will do that when I get home. Anyone had this issue, I know most of you have freezing while in the OS but I can't even get to anything?

    I have the same problem. Did you sort it out? Would be really helpful if you could let me know how you fixed it. Or we could discuss what procedures we did in order to find some common ground.
    Thanks,
    Brett

    Hold shift and restart get's you into the recovery options, from there I had the option to do a refresh or a re-install. That help me get back to a functioning machine. So far it's working out. Hope that helps.

    I was still having issues with Apps and the desktop, so I decided to do a reset of the pc, wipes out the machine and takes hours t complete. But everything is working as it should now no issues. I have backups of my pc so deciding to wipe was not an issue.
