    nothing beats a clean install

    I have the ISO for Windows 8.1 with Update one and Windows 8.1 Core/Pro directly from MSDN Hashes verified

    but I can't post them here or I will get b4nn3d
    If you will , please help me decide if I need to do this. I originally had Windows 7 x64 installed on my pc, subsequently upgraded to Windows 8 x64- from MS for a small fee - and I have an original Microsoft Disk for that which I also purchased from MS. Then I upgraded thru the Windows Store to Windows 8.1 x64 and subsequently installed Windows 8.1 Update 1 thru Windows Update. That is where I now stand. As far as I can tell, everything is working fine - SFC /scannow does not find any integrity violations. However, DISM analyze indicates "The Component Store is repairable". but DISM fix indicates it can not find the source file. So something appears to be "messed up" but evidently not seriously. Event Viewer isn't showing any consistent errors, other than Distributed Com when I boot up - possible due to my router and wireless setup.

    First, should I mess with trying to install ISO, if and when Windows 8.1 Update 1 is available and I can find it?

    Secondly, would it be worth my time?

    I am not very knowledgeable in this area and would appreciate any input from someone who is. I just want to insure my pc continues to run smoothly. Thanks.

    They may not be responding because this thread is marked 'solved.' All I can say is that it was worthwhile TO ME to wipe C: and reload Windows using the ISO mentioned by others. I had to get it from The Pirate Bay.

    In case anyone here does respond ... are we allowed to share links to torrents in private messages? Or, is that ban hammer activity as well?
