    Path too long, Windows cannot delete or move files

    Have you tried copying and moving them with Command Prompt? Just did a little bit of research online and someone said that it fixed it for them.

    Mark your calendars for Windows 8.1!

    Really looking forward to Windows 8.1. I love what they have done, especially stopping all newly installed applications being plonked on the main metro window. Great job Microsoft!

    Lenovo problems!

    Its annoying because if you could access command prompt you could run a SFC scan which would probably fix the issue. If you have a windows 8 disk you could boot from that and run the Command Prompt under the "Repair your computer" option.

    Need help accessing my PC

    Glad it helped! I think the best way would be to partition the hard drive. You could have BitLocker encrypt your data, and have another partition just for your users data.

    Need help accessing my PC

    Neobahamut, if you have another computer you could try accessing your D: drive, and as you said you have the password, you should be able to access the data / remove bit locker encryption completely. Let me know if this helps.

    no wifi connection what do i do?

    I suggest doing what znod said. Connect your computer to the modem via ethernet then download the latest updates, and it would probably download the correct wireless drivers.
