I understand that,... and I was not really giving anyone any lip I am Just frustrated, I spend all this time hearing how stable and fast this OS is...and yeah its fabulous so far but it has these little bugs that drive me batty, that's all, I apologize if was out of line, First off I cant find a solution to my Quickplay not functioning, I have installed and uninstalled every Driver known for it, My TU2009 is also Buggy, I know its a beta still, just the compound of issues gets me sorry guys, I will try sfc scannow
