    WINDOWS 8.1 x64


    Wow, many thanks Pooch. I just tried to install Win7 drivers for my Logitech MK710 device, but drivers are not accepted...unless on my own risk.

    But the fault code is no big deal, did get it only twice in 2 days.

    Nice to find "Services", Task Manager/Scheduler) and "Regidt

    Right now the only thing that bothers me in Win8=the icons in the taskbar, when in use, get bigger like in Win2000.....

    If you open 4 differents programs, your taskbar is full......

    Thanks again for your help.

    I do not have this problem with the taskbar icons but then I pin everything I use to my task bar so its like a quick launch and its full anyway

    If you type in msconfig you can stop programs starting with the computer just remove the tick from the box. This logitech device is almost certainly not needed at startup

    Its not clear to me, did you accept and install the drivers? It should be OK to do it.
    You could also try right clicking the installer and selecting Troubleshoot Compatibility, then select Troubleshoot Program, tick in Worked with earlier version, next, then Windows 7 and follow the wizard through
