    Sssso... got any more hints?
    You could try refresh with this:Refresh Windows 8

    Ive had to do this twice. It did help but its not quick thats for sure. My Refresh took a while.... Its unfortunate that things arent a bit more stable. My Mail and Skydrive app just stopped working again and I think im just gonna say screw it and not bother with the Refresh this time.

    Don't bother with System Refresh. Just do another clean install of Windows 8. Its faster and better.
