Windows 8 - Weird Issues, event viewer crazyness. What am I doing wrong?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Just thought I would copy and paste this from another thread I made elsewhere then go into more detail.

With a clean install of Windows 8 I noticed a few strange issues. One being an empty folder appearing on the desktop for no reason, could delete it but then it would later come back. Right click on it and it has no options other than cut or delete.

Been with Win 8 for just over a day now, after severe grief with two installs going bad. (Upgrade doesn't work at all, 2nd I should have run Windows update before installing newer nvidia drivers).... I am left with an OS in reasonable working order.

Sometimes apps are not launching when I click on them and event viewer is being hammered.

There are lots of mentions or my Cyborg RAT 7 drivers in event viewer (Saitek errors).

What are people doing with regards to intel chipset drivers, the intel engine management drivers etc? Are you letting Windows 8 obtain them or are you getting them from Intel direct?

But look at this....

taskhostex (1768) An attempt to open the file "C:\Users\Damien\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\W ebCache\WebCacheV01.dat" for read only access failed with system error 32 (0x00000020): "The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process. ". The open file operation will fail with error -1032 (0xfffffbf8).

Or how about some of this....

Windows detected your registry file is still in use by other applications or services. The file will be unloaded now. The applications or services that hold your registry file may not function properly afterwards.

And alarmingly this huge list.

Can anybody share some insight into this alarming number of errors on a clean install?

On Win 7 I only ever got one error relating to having disabled hibernation. (And for awhile one relating to MSE)

I have since gone back to Win 7 , and after 100+ updates I only have a few entries.

format, reinstall. you have a serious corruption issue

make sure when you are going through the install, delete the partition you are installing to, recreate it, format it, then install on it.

That's exactly what I did.

It only took a day of usage to get in that state, where as my Win 7 install was perfect for a year.
