Honestly, when I used the Upgrade Assistant I don't think it gave me the option. Thankfully I downloaded the ISO during the Windows 8 purchase process and immediately re-installed a clean Windows 8 with the DVD. I had a "duh" moment when I saw it was an upgrade and had lost a lot of space on my SSD. Because "duh" it wasn't a clean install.

Is there any reason to buy Windows 8 Pro over Windows 8 for a regular gamer / word doc user?

Only advantages Pro has is some Domain features, Bitlocker, and hosting Remote Desktop sessions. I get Pro because I'm a heavy Remote Desktop user but if you can live without that regular Windows 8 should work fine.

You also have to use Pro if you are going to install/ use Windows Media Center.

Hey,

I'm afraid I'll have to bow out for a few months. I had a few driver niggles as well as a few genuine hardware problems and it's just too difficult for me to seriously troubleshoot anything in 8 given the driver issues. I don't blame the OS, hardware manufacturers just don't appear to have made enough effort to have quality drivers ready when Win 8 launched. I guess it serves me right for expecting companies to make an effort to keep owners of existing (albeit very recent) hardware happy.

I do hope to try again in 3 - 6 months.

Edit: In the end I didn't even make it a month. I'm back baby!

Anyone experienced the flashing security error in action centre? I found out that Windows was claiming that ESET and windows defender were both not running by filming it at 60fps with my GoPro. Turns out that according to ESET this is a Windows 8 bug, and they recommended disabling those notifications. I'm slightly sceptical that this is a Windows problem rather than an ESET problem, but there is some confirmation in Google that it's also happened with other security products.

Anyone know how to remove the Ease of Access button from the logon screen? In Windows 7 you had to edit the Authui.dll file, but this has changed in Windows 8.

I need to remove it not just simply for aesthetics but because it sometimes becomes activated by pressing the letter "U" which when part of a password stops you from been able to logon. This is for use in the work place so telling people simply not to use passwords with the letter "U" is not really an option.
