    Why in God's name would I need microsoft's support..?? Puh-leeze... I accept all responsibility for anything that happens to my computer.

    I have now marked this as solved, as the issue seems to have gone away.

    You need Microsoft's support for security updates, bug fixes, and other updates. None of these will be available for non-updated 8.1.

    Glad your issue seems to have cleared up.

    My security is fine, and I fixed their bugs myself.
    One can't say they need to rely on ms for bug fixes, when their updates themselves are the bugs.
