    Windows 8.1


    Hi David Bailey,

    Had no idea that TWC.Win7 had anything to do with Store Broker in Windows 8.1. I am not a power user, yet! Just use the computer for work.

    Update: Disabled the Store broker following eightforums tutorial I mentioned earlier.
    Computer works beautifully (apart from the fact that the sound cuts out at any volume greater than 50%-any ideas or should I post in a new section?).
    Cannot use Store obviously but do not miss it tbh!
    Microsoft is gathering log files on the Community website to try and sort the issue. Many people doing same thing as I have done, cutting process and waiting for solution.
    I'll keep you posted.

    I don't have the broker program so I used TWC as an example of a disabled program.
