    Had to go back to Windows 7 :(


    Well yesterday I ended up restoring my system back to Windows 7 from 8.1. For some reason there was something causing Windows 8 to run incorrectly and finally crashed while running IE in metro. Kept hanging and had several issues with Adobe Flash where it wouldn't work. I guess I'll run Windows 8.1 thru VMware Workstation.

    The problem could have been caused by the latest botched updates issued last month. I saw people were experiencing numerous problems due to that.

    I must be lucky with 8.1, I have had NO problems at all.

    Well I did a reinstall just today and put everything back the way I had it with the exception of a few things that I suspect to be the culprit of my system hang time. So far now its running great!
