    Windows 8.1.1 Pro with Media Center


    After hours of testing I found the KB295164 update was causing the problem.

    It was optional so I removed it & hid it.

    Everything is fine now.

    A reason why I always install Important updates first and check what Optional ones are for. One of those Optional ones tries to install new driver for my TV card and that driver doesn't work anyway. I also do not do any updates to MS Office, always screws up something.
