    If you like the Windows 7 style desktop, you will get it with the 8.1 update. If you want the fully functional style Windows 7 desktop. You have to use third party utilities like Start8 or Classic Shell.

    To get full access without having to use the Microsoft Live account. You have to use a Local user account. The Local account is how you used to use to log into prior versions of Windows.

    Keep in mind that you cannot uninstall Metro Apps from within the Programs & Features from the desktop. Certain ones are going to stay, that are a part of Windows 8. Those cannot be uninstalled.

    I am not having a good night. I upload it and it is good on my screen. I have just refreshed the page and it has disappeared.

    I have uploaded it again. Something is wrong.

    Yes I opened CCleaner and all the programs are there under uninstall.

    You see I have learned to watch what is being installed all the time, I watch it ever other day just in case something annoying slips through as it does.

    windows 8.1 Update 1 Pro 64bit


    In the elevated command prompt type sfc /scannow then return

    Then Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    Then the sfc /scannow again

    These processes will take a while. When finished reboot the computer and check the Control Panel

    Thanks we are getting somewhere.

    I am not familiar with the elevated command prompt but I search the internet to find cammd prompt on the shell start button.

    At the command I typed sfc / scannow reply: You must be an administrator running a console session in order use the sfc utility.

    So I am now lost. Does elevated mean administrator? But my account is and administrator why is it saying I must be and administrator, because that is the only accounts I have. (I got stung with standard accounts last year BTW)

    Anyway, not giving me administrator rights is maybe the problem? Sorry I will have to continue tomorrow. It is not 01.15 and I have a heavy day tomorrow. Thanks for now. Ceira

    To open a Elevated Command Prompt:

    Click on the Start button and type cmd.
    DO NOT press Enter or click Go.
    Look at the upper part of the window and you will see cmd.exe.
    Right click on it and select Run as Administrator.

    Isn't that how it's done in Windows 7? In 8 and 8.1, press WIN + X to open Start context menu and select Command Prompt (Admin)​.
