    Hey, i'm on 8.1 too and everything is fine. No game or app crashing. I did a upgrade from windows 8. Did you try to update your gpu drivers, i saw that amd has a new one for 8.1. BTW rtm, gold version .... , all these term still mean beta until official release date that come with a day one patch.
    Thanks, I mostly work on routing/switching equipment. I dabble with PCs as a hobby. And use TechNet to increase my exposure to various OS, servers for self training.
    I've tried all the various recovery options mentioned.
    It seems that for ease of use, vendors have moved to wizard options for set-up.
    I have found sometimes, these wizards cause unintended consequences, ie Microsoft Small Business Server limitations on adjustment, when a knowledgeable person, might set up differently. Also some time ago, consumer routers required users to actually configure settings, using a help guide. With the wizards, everything was automated, often configuring erroneous settings. This required someone more knowledgeable to get in to change things. Often the wizard interface got in the way and the tech had to spend more time trying to defeat the wizard than it would have taken doing standard procedures.
    I think this is what may be happening here.

    Still having the same problem.
    I guess my next option will be the old school way and boot the install disk, delete and format partition, install new image.

    Wizards, henchmen, trolls. Bleh!

    Huh!
    So sorry, I was advised not to feed the trolls.
    This is a joke? yes?
    I do have as sense of humor!
    Ha ha! maybe!

    By the way, did you ever get that diphthong corrected?
    Correction:
    monophthong corrected?

    Microsoft will update it of course. And if users above are saying that there are no issues, then there's a problem with the installation, even if it was successful. Reinstall everything again.

    Come on guys, if nycny is criticizing, it's his right to do so. You people have gone out from the topic and into the grammar. -_- Can't you be positive?

    I contacted Netflix today and was told that they have identified a compatibility issue with the new Internet Explorer on both Windows 8.1 and upgraded Windows Phones. IE 11.
    As IE is used as the back end (engine) of the Netflix app, Microsoft needs to white list NetFlix app to make it work.
    It was suggested that in the meantime to use Firefox or Chrome to watch Netflix online.

    I would say it's more of a privilege considering these forums are made available for his use to do so. Much like other acts it's a matter of appropriateness and timing. If he chooses to exercise that privilege to vent he could very well do so without being vague and expressing in a manner which itself comes off trollish. People are more than willing to help and discuss openly if they feel the beginning statement is receptive to it.

    Regarding my comment, I concede I made a misstep. For that I do apologize to him. Perhaps it's one of those reminding lessons to not respond negatively when met with negativity.

    Apart from Netflix and IE 11 issues, what are the new features that you like?

    So, more in the news. It appears that the IE app is also having problems rendering flash due to incompatibility issues.
    It's somewhere else in this forum.
    I'll try to find a link and post.
    The work around is to have flash video open in desktop mode.
    More to follow.

    I really like 8.1, except for a lot of annoyances that will not play right as this hits the sales floor soon.
    The layout is simpler, less cluttered.
    I've been using the sharing "charm", it seems kind of hit or miss, will I share a link or screen shot? I've worked with phone systems quite a bit, and when soft keys were introduced customers were asking me "huh? I don't get it." same thing going on here with me.

    I have to admit though, my job keeps me very busy and when I come home from work I want to escape. Not mess around with another piece of technology.

    I guess I got what I asked for, by downloading this.

    I believe I will have to buy another hard drive (SSD 128G) for my os. All of my other files are stored on 3TB raid.
    I cannot format primary HD.
    Anyone got a suggestion?

    I disagree. I installed it over 8 on my primary desktop and everything feels smoother and more crisp. There are more user friendly options which people had concerns with 8 which have been addressed. I do not however see the need for the app list to be below the home screen. I was perfectly fine having to right click and hit all apps or to just search them.

    how come? You can always try using the windows 8 refresh setting which is windows reinstalling itself. I used it a couple months ago and it worked really well.
