Macrium Reflect Free - Tested Backup and Restore both work as expected.
Malwarebytes - Runs but picks up a hopefully false positive registry hijack.

Programs that won't work on Windows 8

I have the new windows 8 installed on my hp pavilion dv7 laptop.
The three programs so far that I can't get to work are as follows;

1- Skype
2- AIM Messenger
3- My simple pass fingerprint reader.- Windows 8 won't recognize it even when it is installed on the laptop.
