Best install of 8.1 that I have experienced . Thanks .
    MS finally broke down and supplied an option to upgrade a little while age - rather then loading 8, doing windows 8 updates, going to store, download a 4GB update,

    system crash, repeat all over again.. Big Complaints to MS one that one..
