Can anyone recommend a forum that I can go to for advice about custom built PCs?

They may not be responding because this thread is marked 'solved.' All I can say is that it was worthwhile TO ME to wipe C: and reload Windows using the ISO mentioned by others. I had to get it from The Pirate Bay.
In case anyone here does respond ... are we allowed to share links to...
Thanks so much guys. I will go through this info and proceed accordingly. I appreciate your help!
I pulled a lower back muscle severely at a family member's house -- not sure when I will get back to my place where my PC is. But, I'll be ready once I get there. Thanks again!

Honeycomb is not alone. I came here because of the same issue; the dim option is gone (for some) in Win 8.1. I do hope that MS (or NVIDIA in my case) resolves the issue soon -- I liked the feature a lot.
I did not -- glad you had one.
I was running Win 8.1 Preview. MS told us that, if you run the preview, you will have to re-install your apps. I though "Apps" referred only to Windows Store apps, but it turns out all of my installed progs were gone after the update.
