    Hope that works. You can still do these things before proceeding: run the Win8 Upgrade Assistant. And, run the Compatibility Troubleshooter from Control Panel > System and Security > Action Center.

    I ran the upgrade assistant prior to installing Win8 and it only gripped about programs. The machine is a 2010 Dell Inspiron 1750; one issue I have noticed in the past is that some older programs have graphics problems because of the full 1080p display.

    Well I didn't find any new drivers, maybe one will show up. Another question, do you know of any way to make the apps "not" full screen?

    I don't think you can avoid full screen.

    That's what I thought and why this version is not designed for a PC but a Android.

    Do you mean an HP? Would that be a company like Hewlett Packard or some version of a higher power? You said humanly. Maybe humanely would be better. I could shoot your computer for you.

    I was thinking along the line of one that programmed this world.

    Don't want to shoot this computer considering what I paid for it and what I got - $1300, 500gb HD, 4gb ram, 17.3 1900x1080, directly from Dell as a refurbished.
