    a what? partisan? I don't follow ;x
    it's not the mouse though, you can see in the video it clicks in. And i've never had problems with clicking.

    also i use the same mouse on my laptop and it's fine. Windows 8

    Huh, I just watched the video. Odd indeed.


    Methinks a driver could be in issue. But if should say so myself, this is a stumper of a problem.

    This seems like it could be a registry error. Can you right click and select a tile?

    Thanks for the reminder, Coke, I didn't notice the video in the OP!

    But looking through it, it is a bit fast, but it seems it is only your Metro proggies that do not open? Your third party ones seem ok. Have a look at your Windows Firewall, and make sure it is not disabled. If you have Avast, disable or, better, uninstall it temporarily, there are several reports that it is causing this malfunction. There is even a suggested customise option for Avast, on this forum, but I cannot find it for the moment

    Yeah the third party program opens, chrome did(as you can in the video). But it didn't take me back to my desktop, which is anoyying.

    Also, I uninstalled ad aware, and windows defender reactivated itself. However my laptop also had ad aware when i upgraded from 7->8 and it's fine, so I doubt ad aware is the problem.
