    Your Welcome !! Why and are you still running Windows 8 not Windows 8.1, if so should update soon. Make a manual restore point now.
    Monitor it for a few days, keep this unsolved in case it happens again.
    Honestly I have no idea if I am using windows 8 or 8.1... how do I check?
    Either right click Start button select System will say it there. At run command type msinfo32.

    I was not sure did not list it here and when i looked at ASUS site for your model stated Windows 8 something about an update to 8.1. See it listed under hotlink, specs say Windows 8 or 8 pro.

    I'm not extremely technical (I understand most of what you've told me to do, if only somewhat), so saying 'Windows 8' is what I meant :P

    When right clicked the start menu selected System, you saw Windows 8 ? Know how to screen capture can show me, but this was what ASUS site mentioned to come with your Laptop. All i would say is it is best to put update to Windows 8.1 soon.
