I never upgrade OS. If you want things to work, do a clean install. If you don't do a clean install, expect problems.

Loving Windows 8


But there are a few issues.
1. I cannot run Counter Strike when MSI Afterburner or EVGA Precision is running, though I'm not sure if its related to Windows 8 or if its something else but this didn't happen on Win7.
2. The desktop version of skype (I hate the metro skype) shows a error when shutting down, its annoying when I'm sleepy and forget to click "Okay" and the PC stays on at the screen the entire night.

I haven't gotten around to reinstalling all my library yet since the switch, but I'm pretty sure there won't be an issue with them either.

This is not true. All games do not work fine with 8.

Of course I have re-installed origin and steam as well as the games. I have also re-installed 8 to no avail. That is one of the reasons I made the switch is because it was supposed to work just like 7, but I am having nothing but issues. So are other people.

To even get dead space 2 to work I have to set the exe to windows 7 compatibility. I do not think the Windows OS is to blame. Just think the games have issues and the makers of the games have not made fixes.

I do believe that there are issues with certain games and windows 8 though.

However, I do like the OS a lot better than I thought. Love how it syncs everything like my android devices. I think Windows is heading in the right direction with this OS.......

Again: clean installs or just upgrades? If all you bought was an upgrade copy, do a clean install of W7 and then an upgrade straight up to W8. On a squeaky clean copy of W8 and I haven't had a single problem except drivers that were outdated even on W7 just because it's an old Asus laptop.

I have had issues where Steam games won't run, but I had started having the same issues on Win 7 before the upgrade. I did the clean install and reinstalled Steam and all the games but it didn't help. As annoying as it is, it appears to be a problem with game cache files corrupting.

This is a Steam problem, not a Win 8 prob imo given the experiences mentioned above. Each time something doesn't run (I had the problem first with CoD MW3) I right click on the game in the Steam library and select 'Properties'. Next I select 'Local Files' and click 'Verify Integrity of Game Cache'. it decides that certain files are missing or corrupt and informs you that it will reacquire them. After that the game works fine during the rest of the session (ie until the next boot).

Annoying that one has to do that at all and it can be infuriating to have to wait while Steam reacquires files via download, but this is a Steam problem that was present in Windows 7 as well. The timing might have made it appear to some that the problem was caused by a Win 8 install.

It depends how much you used the old OS before the upgrade. I upgraded from 7 and I don't have issues, but that install was hardly used before the upgrade.
