Win 8 To 8.1 =why So Many Problems ?

BodgatheRat Hi & thanks for this tip. Not happy about a work day spent this way, but still happy. How do I reinstall? Like Gerry, I got shafted with the 4 hour option.

Rachael I just did this and i was able to hid the first update, but it looks like the KB3008273 was already installed yesterday. I'm about to give up. So I opted for the 4 hour leeway and started to roam the Internet for a solution. Now for LPI, just for the heck of it.

This may or may not have data linked to it. I turned my computer off last night and this morning tiles are missing from my start screen... That...

Why don't adjectives agree with nouns in English? Windows 8 works the same way -- updates are available via Windows Update and can be installed automatically -- except for Windows 8.1. Still don't trust playing Diablo 3 on win 8.1, they are terribly lagging! First of all open Control Panel and change View by type to Large icons.

Why would normally reasonable people literally go ape, whatsoever, with frustration at this if it really is the pinnacle of computerdom? Another potential trigger is the Windows uPNP (universal plug-and-play) service, which scans your home network for compatible devices. To do this carry out a Windows search forDisplay and in the menu, change the UI to a larger or smaller scale. You’ll need to replace the offending part if this is the case, unfortunately.

I now only have the message "keep your PC on until this is done. Alternatively, press F12 and use the Document mode drop down to make IE pretend to be a range of different browsers, which can fix sites 'Compatibility View' doesn't.Add specific sites to It'll hide the updates and you'll no longer receive those 2 updates in future and you'll be able to keep Windows 8 OS in your computer. 7.

I am not sure why we need to be forced to update to what we do not want or need. The only info I can find is this page, Install the Windows 8.1 Update (KB 2919355), at https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/15356/windows-8-install-update-kb-2919355, which says "If you’re running Windows 8.1 or Windows RT 8.1 and you Wading through them is not an easy task for the average user, but if you look for names associated with hardware in your PC, like “Nvidia” or “RealTek,” you can probably Win 10 the same.

You can also customize text scaling with the “set custom text size” link on the left. But, still I am struggling to find solution for reverting back to WIN 8 but no luck. Is there a reasonable way to search through all of the updates to find out if another one does something similar? Go, then, to the Power Management Tab.

Now what do I do? Bill says: May 25, 2015 at 2:09 pm In 8.1 any time I try to drag and drop a folder, I get the "folder in use-action cannot be completed" error even If I can't "win the game" in multiplayer, do my opponents still lose? To fix the problem, you’ll need to use the “Refresh My PC” feature.

Please clue me in on all of this ... That is why I found this page, and thanks to you I can finally relax from an annoying updates for 8.1. Thank you.

That was a week ago.

Go through your devices one-by-one, putting your PC to sleep after each, to find the offender. http://www.thewindowsclub.com/windows-updates-fail-to-install Kyle says: May 13, 2015 at 6:20 pm @William Thompson: thank you for the very helpful article. But now a few people have reported that even after disabling the upgrade notification message, their Windows 8 computer system was automatically upgraded to Windows 8.1 without their knowledge and permission. Steve Balmer with Bill Gates did a great job for many years, but Steve went senile when he abandoned Windows Mobile (compact version of XP) for Windows Phone 7.

Thankyou for any help you may have. I would think that I want to run an upgrade, but Microsoft seems to provide information only about an update. Get the first word on what the important tech news really means with the InfoWorld Tech Watch blog. to do this you need a repair disk or the original disk.

Ui problems in Software and Apps Guys this is serious...in a lot of software I just get a messed up UI, what I mean is that I get a window where After downloading updates, it then says after restarting, that it was unable to install the updates, and is resetting the changes. Things do; however; change for the better. Could it be late?

Gasp! then the pwd screen disappears like nor normal then again for a second or two it become blue or ( you know like the background color i set). This means that Windows 8.1 users - starting patch Tuesday in May 2014 and beyond - will require this update to be installed. I am not overly fond of 8 but use it exclusively from the desktop and disabled annoying features and have a nice proper start button so it works like a computer,

I tried running Store, and it says "We weren't able to connect to the store. I lost so much work resetting my laptop once, not about to do it again. I thought I had uninstalled it but it is still there Now what? You’ll need to use the “Refresh my PC” feature.

PS: Now you can restore Windows Update settings according to your requirements if you want. VG ^^ The method has nothing to do with your problem. I'm not sure about the experiences of those who have nothing against 8.1 but as someone whose laptop has nothing but errors when 8.1 is installed, I'm stunned at how stupid Big Problems please help in General Support Yesterday I bought a year subscription to Best Removal (it removes programs).

As is so often the case, I find what looks like more useful info on a non-microsoft site. barbara hurvey says: July 26, 2014 at 9:01 pm media player does not work William Thompson says: July 28, 2014 at 8:25 am Without more information, there could be any number There are various things that can cause this problem, but whatever the source, the root cause is the same; an erroneous Load value in your registry. thank u.
