    It may have just downloaded all those people's info. I'm not sure if that's considered a bug or not.

    True that. But I actually didn't want the apps installed anyway. And since I would have had no intentions of ever using metro i'd never be looking at all apps.


    But, I've tried for the last many days to give Windows 8 a fair go. It is not for me. Dare I say it; I have real work to get done and Windows 8 is not about productivity. (Don't want to start a flame here)

    I didn't notice that (maybe it was because I had selected multiple Apps to unpin them).

    Does that mean I:
    • Can't uninstall Apps unless they are pinned?
    • Will have to re-pin all of the Apps so that I can uninstall them?


    If that's correct, it's another example of how much "easier" Windows 8 is to use, compared to older versions of Windows.

    On the main Metro Screen if you checkmark more than one tile you only get the unpin option. You can uninstall am app from the main screen and the all apps screen. If you can right click "a" tile you can uninstall it. You don't have to re pin it to the main start menu to uninstall it.

    Since installing the RTM every time I start my computer my USB3 starts in USB2 mode. I restart it and it boots with USB3 mode and stays that way until I switch it off which I do every night. I have installed drivers from the Asrock CD however it tells me that the intel USB3 drivers are not compatible even when I try installing them in compatibility mode.

    No problem, glad to help.

    On my spare PC pretty well any version of Windows 8 will occasionally lock up at the juggling balls screen during cold start boot up. About a one in three chance. Press the reset button and the next boot is fine with no errors about a failed boot. Windows 7 runs fine on the same PC so there must be something about the hardware Windows 8 doesn't like. Happened with RP, and the 8 Pro and Enterprise RTM leaked builds. I wouldn't say its a RTM glitch, just an observation I thought I would mention.

    multiple glitches, not all windows 8:

    verifying microsoft account in order to add pop email addresses into mail browser, where are email options?

    what is this trusted pc nonsense, took forever to get that straight, once again linked to email that i couldn't set up

    can't do some personalizations without activating windows 8, wtf?

    windows 8 doesn't scale correctly out of box onto my 52" hdtv, had to install nvidia driver in order to adjust edges of the screen, driver not intelligent enough to determine that i needed it in windows 8 partition not in windows 7 partition.

    uninstalled nvidia driver and then windows 8 wouldn't load anymore, windows 7 still works fine, reformatted over the windows 8 partition and said screw it.

    activation via kms servers doesn't work because microsoft took servers down, doesn't matter because I read that if Microsoft catches anyone doing the kms server activation hack their microsoft xbox live and microsoft email accounts will be suspended.

    So even if I can get it on another computer, I can't activate it, can I do that 30 day extension thing on i, that would get me 60 days which is about when the retail version hits the stores.

    @tcman50, I'm not sure I understand all that you posted but here goes. The way I understand it, the email you enter should be the one you used for your Windows Live ID. Not just any pop3 email. Its wanting to link to a Windows live ID. If you don't have one and don't want one, you can switch to a "local account", which is your regular Username password setup. I use a Windows live ID and when I use it to log on I can add that PC to my Live ID account as a Trusted PC. That lets me sync settings etc between two or more PC's if they are both trusted PC's. Any time My Live ID is used on a new windows 8 install I get an email telling me and asking if I want to add it to my Live ID account as a trusted PC.

    Thanks Alpha, I more or less knew some of that. The point is I don't want anything to do with Microsoft, I don't want their email accounts, I don't want them scoping my computer for weather location, nothing.

    I have a login for xbox and windows live, blah, blah, hate all of it, it's all extra crap just so Microsoft can take over everything and thus charge for each and everything in the near future, it is coming.
