I had a bad feeling about upgrading to 8.1.......so, here we go.
this morning when I fire up the laptop Windows does not load correctly. I have a screen with my wallpaper and the windows "start" at the lower left and that is all. when I hover mouse over the start button it just spins in that familiar circle. I have shut down/restarted a few times. one of those times I was given the option to "fix" which entails reinstalling 8.1 and then all my apps? Is there any other solution besides this one?
I will be away from this computer most of the day but if someone has ideas I can look at them later in the day.
