Windows 8 and 8.1 Forums


Which version of 8.1 do you think is best?

  1. #21


    So far I hate every single version of Windows 8. You change a setting and apply it and Windows 8 reverts it right back to how it was after a reboot. Kind of frustrating that Microsoft took away our rights as users to configure our machines how we want. Not cool at all.

    Strange.. I don't have any of those issues with 8.1.. You sure your system installed correctly?

    I haven't had that issue either so far, maybe it's an installation issue.

    That's what I was thinking.. When I first installed 8.1 I had some running issues that were solved after a re-install.. For some reason I find it doesn't always install like it's supposed to on the first try...

    Where did you get your install media from? If it was downloaded, I'd download it again just in case the original download was corrupted.

    I got it from the store. It was telling me that 8.1 was available. How can I reinstall 8.1 now? It's no longer in the store because I already responded to the update. I don't trust third party sites. Plus, won't the system just tell me that I already have the latest version?

    Ok you went 8.0 > 8.1 though the Store. I thought you might have done a clean install. I've only ever done the Store update once and had instant issues. Since then I do a clean install right to 8.1.

    Thank you all for your comments and suggestions. Where would I find direct links and also would I be able to uninstall 8.1 and reinstall via direct link and would it interrupt or disrupt the programs I already have installed? Thank you for your help.
