Windows 8 Buggery

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , — Hugsie @ 5:25 am

For the most part I’m rather happy with my copy of Windows 8 on my slowly ageing Core 2 Quad based PC, however it’s a bit buggy. I tend to crash after bootup and going to my desktop from the Start (aka metro) screen.  Windows 8 has the FASTEST boot time I’ve ever seen from Microsoft.

I’m also having weird icon behavior.  Below is a snippet of my desktop icons.  Notice how some folder icons have a bar above the icon, and folders with pictures in it look like upside computer monitors. Anyone get weird folder icons like these?

Update: (march 2013) seems all that weirdness is gone for the past couple months.  I not longer see glitched and upside down icons anymore. Win8 has updated at least 3 times since then.
