    I'm confused, wasn't Windows 95 the first time we saw the start menu.
    I thought NT 4.0 came out a year later.

    Shouldn't that be Windows 8?

    Another 40 page thread on the MS forums here.

    Mine was fixed by doing a system restore back to March, though some people still have the issue even after a refresh/reinstall.

    And still since my pc upgrade from 8 to 8.1 I got random mouse pointer freezes and it will not go in to suspend/sleep mode every night and when it does work it's doing it when I need it to be awake. For the last one I tried all kinds of crazy suggested fixes mentioned in forums on the interweb.

    Adding a couple of pointless cents to the the pile I was only able to successfully update my Surface Pro after refreshing it back to 8 RTM (apparently when you update to 8.1 it won't update your recovery partition like it will on the RT), and the repatching from there, which is painful on a wifi shot in the middle of nowhere.
