    Something interesting... A bug perhaps?


    So I just bought Windows 8 Pro. Everything seemed to work, then Windows Explorer wouldn't stay open, basically it went into a boot loop, but Windows stayed loaded. After recreating my user a number of times, I found the issue. Every time I log into the Windows Store, Explorer breaks. I have not found a solution to this (except of course not using the store), any ideas? I've tried searching online for a solution, but I haven't found anything. Most of the searches resulted in non-final-version of Windows 8 issues, but not directly addressing my issue.

    I won't mark it as solved quite yet. But I did find one culprit. Bluetooth, and it's onboard. So I uninstalled it (the drivers), things started looking better. I tried reinstalling it, and it went into a system/computer seemingly infinite boot loop. Luckily, I had UAC on and it saved me. So no Bluetooth. That's ok, it's terrible anyway. Windows installed some generic drivers, but I disabled it. For now Explorer seems stable, but I will let you know in a day or two when I have felt things out. Odd how it only showed up when I try to log into Windows Store.
