    Win 8.1


    Loaded Win 8.1 on my second desktop. What a disaster!

    I click on one thing & get something else. It is unusable!

    I just clicked on file explorer & Homegroup pops up! When I try to click it down, nothing happens!

    I clicked on one of the items in the stuck group & I get the Character Map! It can't be clicked down either!

    Is anyone else having these problems?

    Could it be the computer? It is an ASUS-AMD?

    Maybe you should do a re-install or just run it on a VM.

    When I had Windows 8 CP on my Asus netbook, it crashed everytime I opened a Metro app even when I did some hack on the resolution and have plugged it into a 15 inch monitor.

    And maybe doing some Windows Updates can help too...

    Seems unlikely. I run 8 on an Amd machine without issue... albeit in desktop mode, but I did try metro for a week initially and hated it, but it did behave the way it was supposed to.

    I must be one of the lucky ones upgraded from w-8 to the 8.1 on a desktop and Laptop and did a clean install on another 2 Laptops with no issues so far as i can tel, even tried it on an older Sony Vio and worked but had issues good luck to all W-8.1 users, I Love the OS.

    Win 8.1 Problems


    A major problem like this doesn't seem normal.

    Maybe I will wipe it & reinstall!!

    I have one desk top that I use as a Test Bed!

    What is the best download site to use to download Win8.1?

    July 30th, My wife & I celebrate our 64 Wedding Anniversary!! Can anyone top that?

    I did the upgrade to 8.1 on my ASUS K75DE Laptop. No issues like that but I did have some other problems. Wifi/Internet would randomly cut out. And my track pad would randomly stop working. I went back to just 8 and all is well again.
