  1. It’s important that people who have the problem can remove its cause – thanks for the link. On the other hand, I have two Win 8.1 installations (32 bit and 64 bit) and both work fine. So not everyone has had a problem.

  2. It is only a matter of time till MS does an update that crashes the machine so badly the only out is reformat and reinstall. It will be some last minute tiny change that does not get exhaustively tested on a huge farm of test machines.

    At some point we need to design the OS, so you can ALWAYS back out an update. We have plenty of disk space for such a feature.
