Iobit or Classic Shell are free.

IObit Start Menu 8 Free download, Bring Start Menu back to ...

You might find it is okayish as long as you use one of those to boot to desktop and navigate about.

Both work well.

Complete pain without a start menu, using those fisher price squares and things popping up full screen covering over what you doing.

I found that windows defender caused some probs, so turned it off and installed Avast Free.

It is miles better.

Thanks,

I'll give those a look. As for Defender, since it includes MSE, I'll give it a try for now, but If I have issues, I'll look to switch. BTW I just uninstalled the trial version of MacAfee so MSE it is.

Thanks

It leads to over/under use of particular muscle groups, which then has negative effects on the surrounding area and can cause specific problems with range of motion and shoulder stability. I can't imagine the people I will be seeing in 5-6 years if reaching your arm in front of you becomes the norm, rotator and shoulder girdle stability are going to be hurting. Of course that's just the trainer in me
You'll see people suffering from symtoms similar to adhesive capsulitis, like I have. For a while, it was impossible for me to even clean my monitor screen without standing up first.

You might want to watch for the surveillance. There is more of that. Not clear to me exactly how much.

It sends info about what you have downloaded and installed to a brand protection Agency.

I expect more of that will be coming. As Ms turn it into a phone - for consumption, the rights owners will want all kinds of rights control stuff. MS will be keen to provide it one way or another.

Good ol frozen shoulder. People can't appreciate how delicate their bodies actually are, even though they are so durable. I also see a lot of over taxation of the LPHC in a particular direction due to all of the printers, phones and what not located next to or at least on the same side as their mice, thus rotating constantly, causing tightness in various muscles.

Funny how you can villifiy a program not just on it's specs, but what it could potentially due to your body

So I guess Windows 8 with touch should be outlawed by the FDA.

Maybe. I'll check back with those using 8 and google glass at the same time and see if they would just be arrested all together

It's a violation of the ADA (American Disability Act).

The actual Win7 start menu is grafted onto Win8, Metro screen is toggled off using Windows 7 Start Menu for Windows 8.

On my Dual Boots it even brought over my Start Menu customizations and settings from 7. Otherwise you'll be asked to insert your 7 disk during install. It's worth it.

I also like the 7-replica 8GadgetPack - Gadgets for Windows 8

That won't work with the service pack (Blue ). MS have removed the remaining start menu code.

Would You Reject A Pre-Built PC Because Of Windows 8
I found an excellent pre-built PC deal. The system uses quality parts and is cheaper than the cost of the separate parts + shipping by $125.00. Plus, I would have to spend time building the PC. The only problem are is it ships with Windows 8 only. Is Windows 8 a deal killer ?
