    Hello Orless,

    See if going through the listed items in the blue note box at the bottom of OPTION TWO in the tutorial below may allow SFC to repair the files afterwards.

    SFC /SCANNOW Command - Run in Windows 8

    Well it locked up windows so I went to re-install W8, but seem the A hole I bought my CD-Key from sold the same key a lot people so it's blocked. I can't reinstall W8. I had put Windows 7 back on until I can get my money back or buy other key. Some people suck and you can't trust anyone these days. I use Outlook I backed up my PSD. I just now got windows 7 reinstalled and working. Damn shame too cause I really liked windows 8.1 and I'm out 85.00 dollars. MS just said too bad. eBay's working to get my money back because he claim to MS reseller. I guess that's what I get for buying W8 off eBay in first place.

    Sorry to hear that. Hopefully eBay will get it sorted soon for you.

    Well I don't have high hopes, because he's no longer a reg user on eBay and it's been 6 months. I can't afford to buy it again right now. But W7 work good so I'll make it. Just live and learn I guess.

    Your not alone, a lot of people got stung buying keys on e-bay. People selling their TechNet keys most likely. Microsoft has killed TechNet, I wonder why?

    thanks.
    Hm, I don't know if there is a real "Context Menu" per se on the Metro Side, but there should be at least some way to resize the tiles. 8 or 8.1? Maybe it's the Mouse settings, make sure the right click is set as Right Click. I'll get in there later and take a look, im still on 8.

    I do believe the OP has gone back to Windows 7. Pressing the space bar while on the Metro Start Screen will bring up the old style Resize, Unpin from Start, menu bar at the bottom of the screen though.

    EDIT: Update 1 for 8.1 adds a context menu to the Start Screen with the resize and unpin options when you right click on a tile.
