    Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 preview ? Do not put much on yet, just the essential drivers, do one software at a time, make restore points on each this time.

    Windows 8.1.

    What I was doing before was applying the recovery wim using dism. (which was 8.0)

    I then installed Windows 8.0 and all of its updates. I then upgrade to Windows 8.1, installed all 8.1 updates. Then did anytime upgrade from 8.1 Core to 8.1 Pro. Then upgraded to Windows 10 Preview

    As you said, issue occurred on both OS's personally would not of jumped to technical preview to try to resolve my issues as you did and seen was no resolve, now back to square one. Meaning system came with Windows 8 and you updated to 8.1 originally ? Of course went to Win 10 Technical preview.

    Yes the system came with Windows 8 and I updated to 8.1 originally

    The issue started after I did the anytime upgrade to 8.1 pro. But now I am just going to clean install 8.1

    You mean the "Get more features with new edition of Windows" link in System properties, for Pro version ?

    Not sure, all research i am doing on this issue, not much on it, possible some other software could be causing it, is my only other thoughts, why we did a clean boot scenario. Still maybe something like this.

    I have Steam, as you mentioned before, i disabled in the Steam options,also done in Task Manager start up tab, but mine does not show there anymore like you were saying. Might be saying some programs may not show in Task Manager startup tab.
