Win 8.1 or just reload 8?

Post by smackaholic » Thu Sep 26, 2013 4:46 pm

Cockblock's laptop is all jacked up. It is less than a year old. It starts, you can open programs, look at pics and stuff, but as soon as you try to open a browser it pretty much loses its mind. I suppose this is a virus, although, I can't imagine that a fine upstanding young man such as CB could possibly have gone to one of the dark corners of the interwebs where such viri generally hang out. :lol:

Fortunately, there is nothing on there that I can't live without, so I wanna just do a clean re-install. WIth 7 I could do that without a disk. Is this the case with 8? I do believe that MS is doing free 8.1 updates. Should I do that? Do I just give my key to MS and they send me an 8.1 disk?

Ask them to send you a copy of 7. Windows 8 blows goats.

Every now and then we agree on something you old fukk. This would be one of those times. I am hoping that they unfukk things a little with .1

I was told there is some program you can run that makes 8 look and work like 7. Maybe I will get that.

What brand of laptop is it?

There should be some key or key combination to press at start up to access the recovery partition.

It's a shame he can't access the recovery partition for his yard.

Actually, my yard does have a recovery partition. It'll hit in in a few months. It's called a foot of snow. Trouble is, it gets corrupted a short while later.

Marty in the geek forum reminds me of MVSCAL in fhe food forum. All polite and helpful and shit. And can manage to get through a post without telling someone to go fukk themselves.

Just don't let any of that pussified behavior leak into CdS.

And thanks for the help, comrade.
