Windows 8.1 x64 pro.
I do notice a weird behavior when enabling admin privileges on any user
Same services and programs are installed. One user (user A) with normal rights, the other (user B) with administrator privileges.
The A goes into windows in a blink the B stucks on blue loading screen before desktop for 10-15".
I have tested it many times even with windows re-installation but results are the same.
Is there any solution for this?
Thanks smile.gif

You should grant that user more permissions (only one should be admin, btw) by adding him in a group
have you tried lusrmgr.msc? Win+r
From there you can add ppl to certain groups (easier than individually giving permissions), you can even create a new group and add permission.

PS: currently on w7, so can't verify

I verify that it works in win 8.1 x64 pro.
My main concern is why administration granted users take 10-15" more, comparing to normal users, from loading to desktop/start screen. In win 7 x64 pro never had such issue as far as i remember.

How's the stability of Windoze 8.1 these days? I'm thinking about upgrading my main rig, but I don't want to re-install everything. My laptop is irritatingly slow and unstable these days but I'm too lazy to refresh it and see what happens. I also noticed on the laptop that it doesn't like long uptimes (I hibernate and then only reboot if Windoze becomes unstable), is this an issue with 8.1 or is it just that installation?

Yes, you get prompted to create a Windows Live account, it can be a pre-existing hotmail.com or a new outlook.com.

I also managed to figure out how to bypass creating an account as well but can't remember exactly. It was something like clicking on the "This is not me" button somewhere in the 8.1 upgrade.

Do you spell windows "windoze" for any reason? I've had win 8 since launch (got the cheap R300 upgrade deal) and 8.1 since it came out and I've never had any stability issues. Hell I only saw what the blue screen looked like about a year later.

All that being said it's never a good idea to upgrade an OS, at least not in my head. I'm sure there are plenty of people here who have had no issues with upgrading but I would still suggest a clean install. My sister runs it on her laptop and also hasn't had any issues but then again she never hibernates. She always turns off and on because of the fast boot time.

The only time(s) I have seen the Win8 BSOD was this year, when my RAM decided to start dying. tongue.gif New RAM, no issues.

I also recommend clean installs. Just backup the important stuff you want to keep.

Thanks for the input. I mainly spell it that way out of habit, but 8 is pretty stable and fast in my experience so I guess Windoze isn't always that bad. biggrin.gif How did you get it for R300? All the stores I know about asked R600-700.

When I said my laptop was unstable (I downgraded it so that's no longer a problem) I meant Explorer kept crashing, everything became slow after a few hours uptime, etc. It also got worse over time.

I might try 8.1 at some point now that NV Surround is reported to work, I'm just hesitant because I also use the rig for work and I don't like re-install everything.

When windows 8 first came out MS was running a "early adopter" sale type thing. If you owned windows 7 you could buy windows 8 upgrade (doesn't mean you can't fresh install) for R300. Myself and all my friends jumped on it because of it's unbelievably awesome price.

From my perspective windows 8/8.1 has been nothing but aces since it came out. Stable, fast, sexy metro interface (with 8.1 and oblytile) you'd have to pay me to go back biggrin.gif

As for upgrading I'm always hesitant. You can do it and chances are it will be fine it's just when it's not you end up having to reformat anyway so why risk it? I suggest if you haven't bought 8 try get your hands on a 8.1 one disc. The dl size of 8.1 from 8 is 3gb and then the 8 + 8.1 updates is like another 1-2gb, it's pretty ouchies.

Something I'm annoyed about is that MS doesn't allow win 8 keys with 8.1 discs. So if I every want to reformat I have install win 8. do all the updates, download windows 8.1, then do all the updates. instead of them just letting me installing 8.1 :/
