    8.1 upgrade success story!


    Alright, went to upgrade my primary PC from Windows 8 to 8.1. Took forever! But went without a hitch! Well, not 100%. When I arrived at the desktop/start screen, the scroll wheel wasn't working on my mouse and my pinned taskbar icons weren't there. But I rebooted the system and now my PC is set up exactly like my Win8 except now it's Windows 8.1! Adobe software is working fine. Office 2010 is working fine.

    Woohoo! (Now have to get my father's PC going ...)

    Great to hear! My experience was just the same. Microsoft really did a good job with the upgrade this time.

    Greetz.

    My 8.1 update experience was also a good one. So far everything seems to be working properly.
