    I had not seen that you had done that, sorry. Usually DISM can fix this cack, but there is a point where stuff gets too messed up to fix like that.

    Ok, I was just asking cos most of the problems here are people who did the update from 8.

    Windows 8 has lousy security on everything and it you mess with it, it fs you up.

    Well, it is supposed to be a free update, glad you got it.

    Anyway, sorry we couldn't help you get to that solution quicker, I was hoping it was something simple. And if ya know us, we'll post all kinds of things to try. I'm not that familiar with 8,1 yet, I know 8 like the back of my hand I hate 8,1, most people here love it though.

    Yah I heard ya, I upped from Windows 7 Ultimate, and it was loused up. I used DISM to fix the problems that got transferred from 7.

    On my other machine, it was a fresh install that's how I like to do it, and I havent had any problems on that system for months.

    We keep posting over each other its like letters that cross in the mail, heh. OK glad you got it fixed, we all learn from this stuff.
