    Start menu icons/shortcuts not refreshing/updating

    Within the last month or so, shortcuts on the start menu haven't been refreshing when their respective icons actually change.

    Solved 2 step verification and account madness

    Has anyone tried this yet? I think they either rolled out a broken feature or Windows 8 isn't able to handle it yet. I enabled it and I could no longer sync my passwords because it wouldn't let me trust my PC anymore. If I click the link in settings under the charms menu, it says the URL is...
