    Also, when you right click on the cmd tile in Start, a button shows up on the bottom right (not sure right now how it is called - could be "advanced"). Click on that- from there you can run as admin.

    You can but I wouldn't recommend it unless you like reinstalling the OS, all of your programs and restoring your data on the OS drive through the pre-beta/beta/RC/RTM/release phases.
    If you don't mind that, go for it!

    Shawn,

    I think that 1) sfc /scannow, 2) chkdsk which did fix some problems, 3) I don't know if restoring the registry setting I'd changed influenced the result or not and right now I don't want to take out the time to chase that one down.

    I'll go ahead and marked this as solved and use separate threads for some of my observations and questions.

    I thank everyone for their input.

    Hi Karl,

    What registry hack did you use?

    from Chip Online:

    With a hack to the old desktop
    Once in the registry, navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\
    Click on "Explorer". To the right your will see an entry "RPEnabled" . Double-click on the entry and change the data to 0 for Windows and 1 for the tile-surface (ie metro)
