    windows 8 Release Preview


    Hi Thank You very much for your help. I reinstalled Win 8 again with just keeping my personal files and not keeping settings. This has worked and all is back now and working. I can get into the store and my account settings and change things like my lock screen pic etc.
    I think the settings i had on the Win 8.1 i tried must of done something and done something to my reinstall of Win 8.
    I think when people do upgrade to Win 8 in the winter it will be best to install with just keeping personal files.

    Thank You again
    Andy
