    I had the same problem when I upgraded from windows 7 to windows 8 after a bit of searching I found out that by uninstalling my anti virus program and then reinstalling it the tiles work...just a quirky thing with windows 8...try it for your self it should work....

    as a follow up, that seemed to have worked for a bit.. Now occasionally (it's really annoying) they won't open, and when it happens the windows key won't work. There has to be incompatibilities somewhere. What video card do you have?
