So about 2 weeks ago, my Windows 8 PC decided to upgrade itself to Windows 8.1 - I SWEAR I did not click "Yes" to update to 8.1 it just did it on it's own!! Every time that window popped up, I clicked cancel. All of a sudden, it tells me to reboot my PC to finish installing the Windows 8.1 update. WHAT?!?!
And, now that it's done... my PC is completely screwed up. Half my software doesn't work properly. I can't get from my traditional desktop to my "tiles" not that I use them much but dragging the mouse into the corner doesn't bring that up. I can't drag the mouse into the other corner to bring up the menu to shut down the PC (I just hold the power button now) and lastly - neither of my Blu Ray drives works. The PC came with a BR burner, and I had a BR burner in one of my old PC's that died, so I installed it here. And they were both working in harmony for the past several months, until now. Now when I put a disc in either drive, nothing happens.
How do I fix this? Should I just try to use the recovery and revert back to a fresh Windows 8 install? How much will I lose from my HD? I have a 1 TB HD and it's about 55% filled with stuff.
