    Yes, that seems to be the one that is supposed to fix it. I disabled the dynamic tick, installed the hotfix, had it running well overnight, but got a freeze now in the morning. Not sure how it will continue throughout the day.

    Just another report: no hangs! Haven't used W7 in weeks!

    The only issues I have, right now, have to do with coming out of hibernation and with setting display brightness while QuickSet is running

    did you reenable the dynamic tick or is it still disabled?

    I didn't enable it again! I don't dare to! Hmm.

    I tried enabling it again sometime last week, and had freezes almost immediately again... been disabled since and it's working fine. I was hoping someone would have better luck than me!

    Windows 8 CP, Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, Peppermint 3


    Sorry to be a pain in the backside guys, but I've been experiencing some Windows 8 gremlins myself.

    I'm on the Consumer Preview, but I notice that anytime my CPU goes under heavy load, Windows 8 overheats and then my safety limit kicks in and shuts off the laptop. Not a great look, especially when gaming.

    Never had overheating problems with Vista or 7, only seems to be with 8.

    I also notice everything is MUCH slower.

    I use Ubuntu and Peppermint (Linux distros) as my daily's, so I'm not too worried about Windows 8. I just can't do any work without it overheating.

    I've ran chkdsk /r through CMD, everything seems fine, so there is differently a kernel issue somewhere.

    The freezing issue still seems to occur in the RTM build for my Dell Studio XPS 13/1340, but the 'disabledynamictick' tweak fixes it.

    Same on my 1340, I thought they would've included the fix in RTM. Though regardless, I'm happy to be able to run windows 8.
