    I'm not sure what else may fix this for you other than refreshing Windows 8.

    I will do like this

    If the os gets further damaged I will follow the above procedure.

    Considering this is a minor issue.

    What say?

    I'd say it's up to you if you are willing to live with it until you are ready to do a refresh.

    I did a refresh today and I installed all the driver,updates and crucial software that I need.

    It allowed me to create a picture password and pin.

    I will test for a week and will post back and take the system Image
