    Helpl 8.1 is awful


    My computer was running great... and fast. Today I d/l 8.1 and it is slow as molasses. I hate it. How can I get rid of 8.1 or fix this. I have no patience. Everything takes forever to open and close.

    Did you upgrade from the windows store? my upgrade from the store made my machine sluggish.
    Only way I fixed it was to use the iso trick on this forum and do a fresh install of 8.1.
    What version of Windows 8 did you have? Was it pre - installed or did you have a disk?

    It was preinstalled. It seems to have become a bit better but start up is slower so I just put my computer to sleep instead of turning it off. I'll try turning it off later and see if it's sluggish again.

    Now I get this on Facebook:

    Get the New Windows App

    Facebook for Windows features live tiles, snap view and more.

    What is it and should I try it or not. I don't trust too much on Facebook.

    If you want to do Facebook as an app otherwise do it on your desktop as you usual would or not

    Thank you! I'll reject it since I'm using Laptop. I do have a Nook but I don't use it for FB as it's too small.

Solved Awful Stuttering Windows 8.1 in Performance & Maintenance
Two days ago I started up my gaming PC in the morning and I noticed that system wide (every app, program, and game) there was constant stuttering. I don't have a virus, I ran CCleaner, and I didn't install anything. It just did this out of nowhere. It's really annoying and sometimes it freezes up.

Windows 8 is the worst OS it has ever been my misfortune to be forced to use. First, I keep getting these inane popups asking me to install all kinds of programs I don't want or need. Second, there seems to be no easy way to get back to the desktop without individually minimizing each open...
Awful Screen Resolution in Graphic Cards
In windows 7 my best screen res is 1280x800 which is great, however on windows 8 I only get two options 800x600, or 1024x768 which looks terrible, does anybody know why this is, and is it just because its and early build of windows or are Microsoft just being stupid.
