    Windows 8 is buggy


    I recently installed Windows 8 Consumer Preview. Although the interface and everything is good, my computer is full of bugs & damn slow. Not only that when I leave it for awhile and it goes into sleep mode, I cannot go back to what I was previously doing without restarting the system. When the computer sleeps, it refuses to go back without me pressing the on/of button and restarting the system. What software can I use to kill and resolve all the bugs in my system? I think I have tried 100s of free software but nothing works completely. I am looking for good free software which will do the job. I am not interested in paying. M tired of this buggy laptop. Its been in the same state these past few months. Nothing helps.

    If you want a bug free system then I suggest you go back to whatever version of windows you were using before, Windows 8 is beta pre-released software so of course it's going to have bugs.

    Actually even when I used Windows 7 there were lots of problems. Basically my laptop is ridden with problems. Pls suggest a free software to cure everything. M fed up of trying different useless software.

    If you reload Windows 7 and dont install lots of junk software then it will run fine unless your laptop has a hardware issue, installing pre-release beta software like Windows 8 is not going to help you at all.

    Hi,

    The problem is what you did or did not do, and not Windows 8 in the least. Please run the tool in the top thread of this subforum (right click, run as admin), then attach the zip it says to make here to a new post. We'll make it good.
