Ever since I began using Windows 8.1, I've had nothing but problems. Windows 7/8 were a dream,
and this update is a living nightmare. I have had only 2-3 boots where it didn't take an hour+ for
windows to start. Most of the time it just stays on that opening screen with the spinning circular
lines on the bottom of the screen. It never tells me what it's doing. Never asks if I want to cancel
disckcheck, or whatever nonsense it thinks it has to do every single damn time it starts.
Worst part is, by the time I check, it went into hibernation or sleep and I try to wake it, nothing
ever shows up on the screens... so a hard reset later and more problems. A vicious cycle.
Is there any way to disable auto diskcheck/whatever it does before loading Windows 8.1?
It is beyond reason that they decided to obfuscate this essential element of the O/S.
