Is it normal to have to log off and back on in Windows 8.1 in order for desktop wallpaper to show up on the Decor8 screen?   I set it, but it doesn't take effect.

Hey computer users. I have a problem, was wondering if anyone else is seeing it, or has any suggestions? Only happens at WC, btw.   When on WinCustomize forums, you can mouse over a topic and get a small preview of that topic, well, mine aren't going away. I have to close IE 11 and reopen it to get rid of it.   Windows 8.1 MCE 64 bit.

Well, first thing I noticed on Windows 8.1 is the lack of a WEI score.   So, Wiz and I naturally googled and found this.   Thought I'd post it in case you guys didn't know.   http://www.intowindows.com/get-windows-experience-index-wei-score-in-windows-8-1/

Hey guys, anyone ever have SFC Scannow to fail?   I had a virus yesterday, got it fixed, but now I get this error when I try to run SFC Scannow on Windows 8 Pro MCE.   It always fails at 64%.

Anyone own a tablet?   I have a question.   Since most electronics today have lithium batteries, is it ok to leave a tablet plugged into the charger like you would a laptop?   Yrag once told me it was fine to leave my laptop plugged into the wall as much as I want.   I never unplug mine unless travelling.   Is the same ok for tablets?

Ok guys, I have been dual booting Windows 7 and Windows 8 ever since last October when I bought Windows 8. So far, 7 has been my default OS, with 8 just being a toy/learning tool, mainly. I am about sure that I want to make 8 my new default OS.   Ok, now, both OSes are currently installed on SSDs. 7 on a 256 GB SSD, 8 on a 120 GB SSD. Naturally, I'll want to have my default OS on the larger/faster drive, I guess. I have good disc images of both drives. So, in swapping ...

Anyone have any idea what can cause a part of a right click menu or the like to be left behind on your screen?   It's been happening to me a lot lately.

  Hi guys. Just wanted to see if anyone out there has had bariatric surgery and if so, do you have anything you'd like to share?   Helpful tips, things to watch out for, etc.   My wife and I are gearing up for the gastric sleeve surgery. In order to get the insurance company to pay, we both had to lose 10% of our weight, as a show of commitment.   Lisa made her 10% goal today!    Yay Lisa!! I weighed in today with the hospital dietitian...

Anyone out there ever have a buzz or static noise from the PC speakers?   I have tried everything from rearrangement, moving the router, disabling unused stuff, even muting my mic. Plugged the power cord into a different socket.   Only way it stops is to turn speakers off.   PC off but speakers on, still get the noise.   It's very faint, but noticeable in a quiet room. Driving me nuts.   Any suggestions?   Creative 5.1 surroun...

Hey guys, just wanted to say that the wife and I attended the Kingsport FunFest this year, and for the first time for either of us, we got to see the band Chicago!   Was a really great performance, and we got a pretty good position. It took place in a stadium, and we sat in chairs on the Astroturf. I must say, I had never heard Chicago rock like that! Even sans Peter Cetera, it was a really great show.   Oh, the opener was a guy named Gavin DeGraw....never heard of him, ...

This was in my email, but not from Stardock. Actually, it was in my spam folder.   Is it legit?   Nice video at external link.

OK, I just wanted to see if any of you that have installed Windows 8.1 Preview have the WEI part of Windows.   I have it on a Virtual Drive and I don't have the WEI option. Just wondered if it's because it's a VM.
