I don't.

Microsoft will have to fix it, they can go to them for support.

Windows 7/64 HPremium.

What a complete, unmitigated disaster (unfortunately for users) Windows 8 has become. Everything Microsoft tries to do with it turns into a mess. Go back to the drawing board, Microsoft. Realise that you did something almost perfect with 7, and build upon that.

The longer this fiasco goes on, the more customers you will lose. I think the problem stems from trying to emulate Apple and Android, heading off into tablet and smartphone land. Microsoft used to buy the competition and re-brand it as a Ms product, unfortunately the companies it wants to emulate are now either too big, too smart or a combination of both.
