    I don't know what's going on


    I don't have the option to turn on Live Tiles. Lets say that I right click on the calender app, there's no option to turn Live Tiles on/off. Help.

    Are you logging in with a Live ID?

    No. Do I need to be? It doesn't seem that I would need to be with using the Weather or Calender app.

    Calendar app doesn't have the option to be live. To test, try out Store. You'll have the options to turn it on/off.

    As far as I remember, the calender is tied to your Microsoft account. When you run the calender app, it should ask you to sign-in. The Weather application, which also doesn't show a live tile for me, is a known problem and is basically due to where you live.

    Heh heh, must be a UAC thing then? Mine is set to lowest level.

    That's the most likely reason I can say.

    Probably. I don't think any of the Metro stuff works properly, or at all with UAC off.
