    I'm downloading 8.1 upgrade on a second system now, it too has a Logitech mouse I'll see what happens with that one.

    Here is the error I had to fix:

    also when you reboot and find this

    Secure Boot Configuration has not installed Properly in the right side bottom of the Desktop App
    Here is how to fix it:
    Go into the Bios and make sure Secure Boot is enabled, if not enable it
    Also Go to Search/Edit Group Policy/Administrative Templates
    All Settings
    Double click :Use enhanced boot configuration data validation Profile, Enable it and reboot
    All should be well

    Just do what it tells you to do. Bring up the charms bar, bring up the switcher. I think I got 3 of these 'tips', and then they stopped.

    I see the update in the store but I am in no hurry to install it. My Windows 8 laptop and netbook are running fine without it so I'll wait for the dust to settle before I consider installing it. I have the run the preview as well as RTM in a VM and haven't seen anything in 8.1 that makes me in a hurry to do the upgrade.

    My laptop however seems to be free of any issues...
