    but give it time and you to will come to like it
    I wonder how much time we are talking about. I have been using it for a full year now and still don't like it. I have no technical problems with it and can do anything I want - but many things in an awkward way. Windows 7 is so much more elegant.

    Caperjack here is my first and only post on these forums so far in which I asked for help in a very polite way and really can't see how you could get so annoyed by it.

    ''Good Morning

    This is my first post on the Windows 8 forum though I had great help from Vista forums.

    My computer died on me so I have jut got an Acer Aspire XC100 which I am pleased with though admit I'm struggling with Windows 8 so I am reverting back to desktop as much as possible.

    My problem yesterday and today is; When I get to Microsoft welcome/ log in page I use the password I created on registration and it's rejected time and time again until eventually it's accepted, this happens with my Windows Live password too. I'm nervous about resetting my password in case I'm locked out altogether so would appreciate some advice please.

    Thank you''

    Ladypink put it across very well so please take heed of her post and if you are not willing to help or advise just ignore our posts.

    Poppygran, try the following.

    On the Start screen type netplwiz and open the netplwiz (top left). I little window should open.

    There is a little checkbox " User must provide password ..." (or something like that).

    Uncheck that box. A new little window pops up where you have to provide your password twice.

    Then Apply, OK and in the future your system should boot without asking for the password.

    In this little video you can see how it works. That was the old CP version in Virtual Box.

    Did it work.

    Your initial problem may have been with the num lock. I noticed that the system sometimes turns the num lock on when you boot and then it releases it. With the num lock on, your typed input is, of course, garbage.

    I have another question. When I'm on firefox on top of the window it shows "active windows" is there a way to remove that?

    I think you are talking about the tabs. To my knowledge, those cannot be removed.

    This is a product - people are perfectly entitled to praise, or to criticise, even more so because of the monopoly situation of the supplier.

    When something is going wrong - that is often when folk will raise their criticisms.

    Normal human behaviour.

    Conversely, if they get a new gadget, they may post up describing the stuff it does - praising it/the os/whatever.
