    Can you clarify? I should disable windows 8 update? What xml file? (the white list) ?? not clear on that and where do I go to modify the xml file and do I just copy and paste the site into it? Sorry I just don't understand your advice.

    @leslieo Don't know if this makes any difference, but I'm running Ex7ForW8 on desktop. This doesn't just restore the Orb Start Menu but imports Explorer 7 shell from Win7 installation disk. So I'm using IE10 desktop version in Explorer 7 shell.
