It's a rare but common enough problem, only solution? Reinstall the OS.. I am not joking on that.
There's solutions posted earlier in the thread, but I'm just going to say it's overkill. The only time you should need to nuke an OS install from orbit is when it's so screwed up, that you can't fix it. This though, is fixable with enough patience.

Yeah, Metro. Usability sucks for desktops and non-touch screen laptops/notebooks!
Bloody true on that one. Nuking it from orbit is the only way to be sure.

Couple of reboots, no luck! Haven't had trouble with a video card driver for probably a decade.... guess I was due.
Last two or three series of drivers for nvidia have been flaky with the installer. Where they won't work if there's any hint of an older driver left. Ran across the same problem on 7x64, and I had to remove every previous version of the drivers before the first set of 3xx's would install.

8 is worse than Vista. Me is worse than Vista. Vista isn't that bad. Yes, it has issues.
It is? Well if you're counting metro. Remove metro, and I'm actually happier with it than Win7.

Well, from the looks of the kickstarter, sure seems like there was a market for this kind of thing. Stupid publishers. There's a good reason that those old infinity engine games were so popular: they were fun as hell to play while also telling a compelling story.
Here, allow me to show you the movie industry. Now compare, gaming industry. See any differences today?

What's the MCE addon?
Windows Medic Centre. AKA the thingy that lets you watch DVD's and crap via the normal media player in windows. Due to the MP4/MP3 and RIAA/MPAA crap, MS couldn't come to terms on a licensing agreement and pulled it out of Windows 8. So until January, if you get it at the discounted price(either $14.99 inside the 1yr upgrade period or $39.99 existing license upgrade), you get it for nothing.

Apparently they're recording how we use Windows 8 as well.
That's been on-going since Windows XP. The guy needs to lay off the sauce, that's how they figured out how to design the charms bar and the ribbon for Win8 in the first place.

I'll be fully honest, I've been using Win8 since release on my gaming rig, and it's much faster than Win7, more stable. Works better with some picky classic games as well. Not all sunshine and roses, I did give the metro UI a fair chance for three weeks. And after spending 90% of my time in the desktop anyway I simply switched right to Start8 since I had a heavily discounted license.

Oh wow, that intro cinematic is cringe worthy.
That "enhanced" intro was terrible. 15 year old CGI intro in 640x480 was better and that's saying something and I'm not even waxing nostalgic.

as usual, the knee-jerk bluesnews reactionary brigade is out in force today...

can i assume that NONE of you posting here are microprocessor engineers? no? probably not.
Peh. I used to write and program PLC's for a living back a decade ago, so I've got some idea of where this is going. This is back when Siemens was in their *glorious* phase of trying to tell us that integrated and locked IO module would help us. Never mind that to reprogram it, you'd need to have someone on site who knew what they were doing, or have access to reprogram the PLC, or send someone out to do it for them. Yeah good plan.

Lasted 6 months. Then they went back to replaceable IO modules because of the failure rate, and people switching to Mitsubishi.

You know what the problem is in PC gaming though and 7 year old hardware? Developers. They don't take risks, they'd rather suck at the tit of consoles, and all the rest. But let's be realistic, the PC industry isn't dying. Though I've been hearing that once since before I was in highschool.

I don't see any solution that will ever be social-engineering proof. If you have a gatekeeper, and that gatekeeper is human, that security system, no matter what it is, can be compromised.
Keyfob, the only way then is to physically take the device from the person. I don't mean a keygen token like what we're using now, but a unique keyring fob tied to you. We'll probably get there in another 30 years.

Bingo. A sting of characters works fine to protect us, the problem as you simply point out is tying accounts to an email address. Once someone has that, you're effectively screwed.

How did we go from Britain's oppressive anti-free speech law to greenhouse gases? Hellbinder makes like one post every six months yet he can still with one insane, rambling post completely hijack a thread. Truly a master troll at work. I am in the presence of greatness.
Well to bring it back onto topic, this is the end result of hate crime laws, and political correctness run amok. Especially where there are kangeroo courts like human rights commissions who exist outside the normal legal framework. In Canada we've been stripping our HRC's ability to nail people for speaking their opinion, even if it's offensive.

Apparently the shortcuts are different as alt + x doesn't work. If they even use shortcuts. I just tried it again and I still have no f'ing clue how to close it.

I was tempted to try fist + screen but decided against it Tongue
alt+f4 apparently works, I just tried. I don't really have much time to play around with anything else with the drugs making me doped out so I'll screw around tomorrow and see if there's something else. But alt+f4 does seem to force close any app that's open still including that bloody xbox thingy.

also left corner up or down will let you swing back to whatever your'e working on. dragging in the area where it's playing will also let you make a custom work/tileset.

This will probably help:

Every other evolution of windows I had no issues learning. That told me everything I needed to know. I'm able to accept the idea that I'm simply stuck in my ways. My ways work though.
Really MS could get around this by giving people a list of quick keyboard shortcuts when the installer is first being setup. Though to be honest, I've almost never used them up until 8.

That was supposed to be "without" sort of a joke, but with half a word missing it makes no sense.
