    Unhappy Download

    I have read the post on how to change to Admin rights. I still get the error when trying to download Windows 8.1 and it tells me I can't download as I need Admin Rights. Any other suggestion so I can download?? This is my second day on the new Windows 8 and so far I don't like it at all. It's not friendly, it's hard to find what you're looking for. I hope it gets better soon!!!

    Are you used to using windows 7? If so you, try using Classic Shell, it will give you the look and feel of windows 7 but with all the benefits of windows 8.

    I have a brand new Alienware dell computer. It came with windows 8. I figured it out.. I had to right click on the bottom bar, and went to systems. Another screen I was in it said I had no updates but under system it told me I had two. Once I downloaded those it allowed me to go back to the store and windows 8.1 is now downloading. I'll check into the other that you mentioned cause yes I am use to windows 7. Thank you!!

    Note: App updates are separate from the regular MS system updates. You have to update the apps from with in the "store" app and then bringing up the charms bar and selecting settings and then update.

    If you install classic shell you should be able to navigate more freely like in windows 7 until you get the feel of using 8/8.1
