Agreed with your sentiments jmtjet.
I too have tried my best to learn, adapt, and work with Win8 on one of my home pc's for several months now. But, since I just got the system cleaned up from a ton of viruses my son unfortunately obtained from peer to peer mp3 file sharing (and he knew that he wasn't supposed to do that, and did it anyways-hence indefinite ban on said computer), the system files are all jacked up. I have tried several of the fixes provided by some of the help here, but still to no avail. I also tried to redo system security updates etc. System Restore is messed up, the freeware utilities to try and fix this are really not free. What a headache! Win 8 does not recognize all of the gtx video hardware line, and it is not really efficient for games either. I never had these problems with Win 7 or XP. If there were no Win 7, I would just use XP.
This system is nothing more than an elaborate OS for a tablet. Unfortunately, it just does not quite transfer over to the PC very well at all.
Windows 7 to the rescue!
