I use SSD for my Windows 8.1 laptop and desktop PCs and I haven't noticed any slow downs with StartIsBack.
I have tried Custom toolbars, but they don't have some things that I use daily in my work flow.

I want Windows...
StartIsBack and I think Start8, classic shell has modern app shortcuts you can enable or disable it in options.

It would be great if MS returned windows 7 style start menu to windows 8.1 or 9 that could be enabled in options, that way people who like "modern" start screen couldn't complain too. I would like to be able to disable metro/modern part of windows 8.1/9 completely.

It's set in group policy to lock pc with password prompt after some time when its idle and it goes to screen saver in my case monitor just turns off, because its set to turn off in power settings at the same time (I really don't need screen saver, but I want to turn off monitor after some time...
Because I need flash and I have installed it on for example windows 7 does that still make windows7+flash more secure than windows 8?
according to that article windows xp has less vulnerabilities than windows vista/7/8 so its most secure?
Sorry, but that post is not helpful at all.
I know how to change screen saver. Problem is that it should not go into screen saver while playing media.
Anyway problem solved by setting it back to flash player from html5
I upgraded from windows 8 pro to windows 8.1 pro
When I watch YouTube video screensaver kicks in.
