    Windows 8.1 Setup


    I need help setting up my Windows 8.1 computer. Should i install updates first, or what? I had to do a Refresh of the system.

    Windows first.
    Are you needing the Store to upgrade to 8.1 ?

    No. My computer came pre-installed with 8.1. I just have to install the 8.1 Update on it after while.

    The updates will take a long time.
    Especially the latest.--KB3000850.

    I know. I hate resetting and refreshing computers. You have to do everything over again. I had problems getting it to sleep, and when it would sleep, it would power off in restart mode. Then, it restarted itself. So, Acer suggested a BIOS update, which I did. Then, everything started to act funny, so I did a factory reset. I'm finally getting it back in working order again.

    You might want to consider using Macrium Reflect in the future.
    I use the paid standard version because it has a boot time recovery menu.

    Macrium Reflect FREE Edition - Information and download

    You just make an image when things are running good & when problems occur just insert the USB with the image on it & restart & use the boot time menu to restore to good working order.

    It takes me about 25 minutes to restore using it.
