    Bummer:

    I get lots of Gremlins after updates. And recently I got a slew of them. A slew is a whole lot.

    Looks like you suffered some cross link file corruption with your language settings.

    Are you uninstalling using the features in the control panel ?

    There are several workarounds and trouble shooters in Win 8.

    Hello, thanks for the reply.

    I am trying to uninstall trough the Control Panel yes..
    Now i am using Revo Uninstaller, and happyt with it.

    The language issue is kinda strange, friend of mine just upgraded from WIN7 to WIN8 and has the same issue. Possible Microsoft had a BUG in the Dutch language pack...

    Just wanted to know if more ppl have this problem
