My next try was to uninstall Acronis True Image 2013, and that did the trick !

Now my Windows 8 doesn't feel like pre-alpha anymore !

Thanks to all.
I had the same problem and had to reboot each time. I also had Acronis 2013 installed in my system so I hope your finding will really fix the problem. Thanks
