    Verify


    Hey folks,

    i downloaded Windows 8.1...no problems but in the notifications i have the "flag" telling me i need to verify this computer, so i click on it and it takes me to the page to verify the computer, when i click the verify option it doesn't do anything.

    Any help is much appreciated

    Hello John,

    See if this may be able to help to get your PC verified by adding it as a trusted device.

    Yah, in WIndows 8 this was called "Trust This PC" - Same solution.

    Apparently this was renamed to "Verify" in 8.1
